Fancy a post-Christmas city break? Of course you do. The best way to survive the back to work angst after the festive period is to have yet another holiday to look forward to.

The popular rail service is currently offering tickets to Paris and Brussels for as little as £29 each way, with prices being slashed on over 100,000 seats this January. That’s right, forget the Christmas blues, you could be swanning around Europe without a care in the world – and more importantly, without doing any serious damage to your bank account.

The cherry on top? The bargain prices are available to book for dates in between Tuesday, 22nd January and Wednesday, 17th April, which means you don’t have to travel at an unconventional time. In fact, it may even make Valentines Day plans for the year a lot easier as you can whisk your loved one away to the French capital for less. Cheap, cheerful and romantic!

The sweet deals are currently on the Eurostar website and last until Monday 21st January. But as you can expect, they’ll no doubt be snapped up in no time so if you’re interested, you may want to get a move on.

Those who like travelling in style will be pleased to hear that the sale also includes  seat in the Standard Premier carriage, which are subsequently available to book for just £70 each way. Unlike the standard seats, these tickets include extra legroom, a meal and refreshments.

This is the second sale offered by Eurostar in the past few months. Back in September, the rail service put on special prices for tickets to Paris, Lille, Brussels and Calais, as well as their newly introduced service direct to Rotterdam and Amsterdam. So if you missed out on that, here’s your second chance…
