Rotterdam by train booking guides

Rotterdam is very well connected by rail. It's a hub for train travel within the Netherlands thanks to direct InterCity services to The Hague and Utrecht, and a high-speed Fyra link that has cut travel to Amsterdam to just 40 minutes. Further afield, international trains arrive from Brussels, Paris and Antwerp throughout the day. The high-speed Thalys deserves a special mention, since direct trains from Paris to Rotterdam take just 2 hour 40 mins and from Brussels only 1 hour 15 mins.
Thanks to frequent Eurostar trains to Brussels and connecting the high-speed Thalys services, taking the train from London to Rotterdam takes just over 4 hours. With such quick journey times, you'd be crazy to fly! Find more information about the most popular routes by using the rail booking guides below.

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.
