Eurostar will reinstate its direct service from London to Rotterdam and Amsterdam on July 9.
The route will restart with one train a day departing London St Pancras at 11:04, arriving in Amsterdam Central at 16:11. Fares are available from £40 one way.
The train also offers onward connections to other Dutch cities, including Utrecht in just over 20 minutes and to Haarlem in 10 minutes from Amsterdam, and to The Hague in under half an hour from Rotterdam.
The return journey continues to be a connecting service through Brussels, where passport controls and security screening are carried out.
For all bookings made from July 1 until December 31, Eurostar is offering flexible fares, which can be exchanged with no fee up to 14 days before departure. These are valid for any dates of travel available at the time of purchase.
Eurostar has introduced new hygiene measures on board and in stations, including a new seat map to ensure travellers are seated at a safe distance to respect social distancing guidelines.
Trains are deep cleaned before every journey and cleaning teams are on board to regularly disinfect high contact areas.
All travellers must wear a mask on board and in stations, in line with government regulations.
