Loco2 has achieved something remarkable.
For the first time, you can enter the name of

Loco2 has achieved something remarkable. For the first time, you can enter the name of your local station, however small and insignificant it is, then enter Amsterdam or Venice or Lucerne or Berlin or Barcelona or Copenhagen and it'll work out (and book) all your trains. It'll book to almost any local station abroad, too, however far from an airport. A virtually door-to-door solution which isn't something easyJet or Ryanair can boast!

I give Loco2 top marks for using that well-kept secret for the UK part of the journey, London International (CIV) tickets. These special fares have fewer time restrictions than regular tickets, so if you're connecting with Eurostar, you can often travel in the peak at an off-peak price. They also mean that CIV international conditions of carriage apply to your whole journey, so if a delay or other disruption affects your UK train, no problem, you'll be rebooked on a later Eurostar & onward trains at no extra charge.

I hope this will make it even easier for people to switch from plane to train from their local station to France, Italy, Switzerland, Spain, Netherlands or Germany.

Booking a door-to-door train journey at Loco2 just became simpler than booking an airport-to-airport flight, then having to research and book transport to and from the airports at both ends!

  • Combine UK trains with Eurostar, TGV, ICE and other international high-speed trains
  • Destination London International: These special tickets protect your trip from disruption, among other benefits
  • Now you can use Loco2 for all your domestic travel too, with exactly the same prices as you'll find elsewhere LEARN MORE

CIV protection

UK train tickets to "London St Pancras International CIV" offer an extra level of protection for international train journeys.

These special fares, authorised by National Rail, ensure that your entire journey will be protected under international conditions of carriage.

This means that if your UK train is delayed you'll be guaranteed a place on the next available Eurostar and onward trains to your destination at no extra charge.

Tickets to "London St Pancras International CIV" also include travel on the London Underground (if necessary) to London St Pancras.

CIV fares are priced differently to normal tickets, and are only valid with proof of an onward Eurostar ticket.

Prices are usually slightly more expensive than non-CIV tickets for the same route, though they can sometimes be cheaper, especially during peak times.
