A £9 coach fare to Paris has proved so popular with budget travellers it has been extended to Amsterdam and Brussels.
Over 1,000 bargain hunters have snapped up the £9 Eurolines coach fare since it launched on 2 March – generating a 24% surge in visitors to the coach company’s website.
To meet demand Eurolines is extending the offer to other popular coach routes. The deal will allow holidaymakers to travel to Paris, Brussels and Amsterdam for £9 each way from 16 April. The fares are available to book from today (26 March).
John Gilbert, Managing Director of Eurolines UK, said: “We have had an unprecedented level of interest in the £9 fare to Paris – demonstrating that the appetite for affordable short breaks is as strong as ever.
"Over the last two years we’ve seen more and more people choose coach as passengers look for the best value. To ensure last minute, budget breaks continue to be accessible we’ve extended the £9 deal to Amsterdam and Brussels and made it available for travel everyday of the week. The coach fare includes tax, booking fee and a two suitcase baggage allowance and is available for travel from 16 April."
Eurolines operate daily services from London Victoria to Paris, Amsterdam and Brussels. The company attracted almost 60,000 additional passengers during 2011 with significant growth on their Paris and Amsterdam routes.
