Eurostar has ended its hotel content partnership with Expedia to create its own collection of properties supplied by Jac Travel.
The cross-Channel rail operator’s move to package hotel stays with its rail service in the first stage of expanding its overall travel offering.
Music, theatre and entertainment options are to be added to a new Eurostar Holidays digital travel platform.
The new hotel collection covers Eurostar destinations such as Paris, Brussels and Lille plus Bruges.
Eurostar new digital business managing director, Roberto Abbondio, said: “We’ve created the new platform to engage with our passengers on more than just their journey, bringing our destinations to life with a range of accommodation and experiences that can be selected to suit their individual needs, to create the ideal trip.
“The first step is by offering quality places to stay, and then we will be forging long term partnerships with the best our cities have to offer, from the top attractions to more bespoke ‘bijou’ adventures.
“With the majority of our colleagues living in our key destinations, we know them intimately, and look forward to opening them up in a whole new way to those that travel with us.”
