Hi Brenda and Ziners,
I just re-read my last posting and I realize I was a little elliptical!
I wrote: We considered flying from Paris to London but when we looked at all the costs, we decided to go by train. There is a good discount on the Eurostar and it doesn't use up a day's travel. Buy the ticket when you get your pass if your date is set.
Further explanation: There is a good discount on the Eurostar with rail passes and it doesn't use up a day of your rail pass. You must have activated your rail pass though. We used it after all of our pass days had been used up.
Also you can travel second class on the Eurostar even though you have a first class rail pass.
Eurostar prices have been reduced as well. Check online at http://www.eurostar.com
