Backpacking on the Eurostar

Travelers planning a trip away may wish to coincide their adventure abroad with Eurostar's August Bank Holiday weekend getaway promotion.

Hostel-staying backpackers who choose to travel by Eurostar will be joined by 140,000 fellow travelers making their way into Europe.

Those individuals who opt for the carbon-neutral mode of travel will find they are in the running for a special prize.

Eurostar has pledged to reward the 100 millionth traveler who sets off on the 09:00 service from St Pancras International to Paris, stopping at Lille.

Chief executive of Eurostar Richard Brown commented: "It promises to be a cracking Bank Holiday weekend and by reaching the 100 millionth traveler milestone we have created a 'Eurostar Generation' of people who have changed their lives because of our service."

He added that 80 percent of those traveling on routes between London, Paris and Brussels opt for a ride on the Eurostar.
