Eurostar has released another round of discounted one-way fares, offering travel to Paris, Brussels and Lille at just £29 (so £58 return, in case that needs clarifying). You can travel to Bruges (or indeed any station in Belgium) for £34.50.
The booking window is tight, however: you have until the end of 21 April, 2016 (i.e. tomorrow) to benefit from this seat sale. Per the title of this post, travel needs to be in May, 2016.

While researching this article, we also stumbled upon an interesting little tool by Eurostar called “The Hidden Costs of Flying: Calculate How Much You Can Save”.
It’s basically a calculator that allows you to factor in all the “extras” associated with flying, as they apply to you, and then sets out the “hidden costs” of flying with easyJet, Brussels Airlines and British Airways versus going by rail with Eurostar.
While a touch selective in its choice of comparison fares, it’s an interesting read and a useful reminder of just what good value, and a convenient option, Eurostar can be.
