Amsterdam by train booking guides

Direct high-speed trains to Amsterdam run directly from Paris and Brussels, on the popular Thalys service, or there are also a number of slightly slower InterCity departures. The Fyra high-speed train runs between Rotterdam and Amsterdam (the trains start further south at Breda) alongside standard InterCity services. The extended Fyra route that would create more frequent trains from Brussels to Amsterdam is currently postponed awaiting new trains.
London to Amsterdam by train is simple, with one change in Brussels to connect with either a Thalys or InterCity service. The total journey time for trains from London to Amsterdam is currently just under six hours.

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.
