Eurostar has launched a free mobile app and now passengers can book journeys on the go and get tickets sent direct to their iPhone or Android device.
Passengers who book using the Eurostar App will get an immediate mobile ticket with an electronic barcode which can simply be scanned at check-in, making it a 100% paperless travel ticket.
Members of Eurostar’s two loyalty programmes, Frequent Traveller and Plus Points will be able to earn points when they make bookings, view their point balances on screen and see live service updates to keep them posted on travel disruptions. The app also has a personal profile page so you can store address details and seating preferences.
The Eurostar iPhone app (also for Android devices) allows passengers to book and manage their journeys. There’s also a new Eurostar.com mobile version for a better experience when accessing the site via. mobiles.
Nick Mercer, Commercial Director for Eurostar commented: "Our aim is to make using our services as easy and seamless as possible. So with the majority of our customers now owning a smartphone, we are really pleased that we are able to provide a new suite of services that make booking and checking in even easier for them.
"The new Eurostar App and mobile website represent the start of many exciting mobile developments for Eurostar, which will help ensure we become the first choice operator of short haul travel from the UK to Europe."
The Eurostar App, which was created by Backelite, is available for free from the App Store on iPhone or the Android Market on Android devices.
