Frequent Flyer Destinations - - VOYAGER -

Eurostar, the high-speed rail ser­vice link­ing the UK and main­land Europe, is of­fer­ing meet­ing, in­cen­tive, con­fer­ence and ex­hi­bi­tion (MICE) cus­tomers a se­lec­tion of new ways to make their jour­ney even more mem­o­rable.

Cus­tomers book­ing ex­clu­sive coaches can now treat their guests to a ded­i­cated on­board ex­pe­ri­ence, hosted by an ex­pert speaker and tai­lored to en­lighten and en­ter­tain del­e­gates as they travel across the Chan­nel.

Avail­able for book­ings from Septem­ber, Eurostar’s new ex­clu­sive ex­pe­ri­ences are the ideal way to leave a last­ing im­pres­sion with trav­el­ers from the mo­ment they ar­rive on board. Tak­ing their trip to the next level, or­ga­niz­ers can choose from themes in-keep­ing with Eurostar des­ti­na­tions, rang­ing from food and drink to arts and cul­ture.

The on­board ex­pe­ri­ences are avail­able to groups that have booked an en­tire coach, on all Eurostar routes. Costs are avail­able on re­quest.

SPIR­ITS

Cel­e­brat­ing the en­dur­ing pop­u­lar­ity of gin, guests will be in­vited to taste rare and ex­clu­sive blends as well as to un­der­stand how gin is made and which ton­ics work with them to cre­ate per­fect com­bi­na­tions. A ver­sion of this ex­pe­ri­ence can also be fo­cused on whiskey.

The whiskey ex­pe­ri­ence is hosted by world-renowned spir­its ex­pert Dave Broom or Dawn Davies (The Spir­its and Whisky Ex­change).

CHEESE

With cheese fes­ti­vals and ar­ti­san prod­ucts ap­pear­ing across the food scene, this ex­pe­ri­ence is com­bined with craft beers, and ar­ti­san foods, to demon­strate why beer is a bet­ter match than

wine, along­side tast­ings of five cheeses from the des­ti­na­tion of travel and tips and rec­om­men­da­tions on where to buy and taste cheeses on ar­rival.

FASH­ION AND BEAUTY

Ad­vice and in­sights on stay­ing ahead of each sea­sons trends in cloth­ing and cos­met­ics, ei­ther as a sin­gle group or in small group con­sul­ta­tions along with prod­ucts to try out. The ses­sion can in­clude ad­vice to both men and women through a talk, Q&A and tips and rec­om­men­da­tions on stores to visit on ar­rival at the des­ti­na­tion.

WINE

Fea­tur­ing tast­ings from un­ex­pected coun­tries, the ex­pe­ri­ence aims to take trav­el­ers out of their com­fort zone, show­ing them how to pick the gems on a restau­rant wine list, and in­tro­duc­ing them to the top restau­rants in their des­ti­na­tion.

ART

Re­mind­ing del­e­gates how to have fun putting pen to pa­per, and also in­cor­po­rat­ing some of the artis­tic high­lights in the des­ti­na­tion with talks and sto­ries be­hind a se­lec­tion of fa­mous works.

GREAT TASTE

With ham­pers pro­vided by The Guild of Fine Food, guests will hear the prove­nance of prod­ucts com­pet­ing to win pres­ti­gious ‘Great Taste’ stars. In­clud­ing meats, cheeses, ciders, and choco­lates, del­e­gates can test their tast­ing palates by award­ing tast­ing notes and star rat­ings to be com­pared to those awarded by the judges.

“We wanted to of­fer those trav­el­ing in a group a new way to make the most out of their time on board,” Inge Bauwens, Eurostar Busi­ness De­vel­op­ment Man­ager, MICE, said. “Tak­ing ad­van­tage of the space avail­able on board and free­dom to move around, our new range of ex­clu­sive ex­pe­ri­ences al­low MICE trav­el­ers to pro­vide a unique jour­ney for their guests and a Eurostar trip to re­mem­ber.”

With quick and con­ve­nient check-in, a seam­less city-cen­ter to city-cen­ter jour­ney, and a gen­er­ous bag­gage al­lowance, Eurostar is the ideal way to travel be­tween Lon­don and main­land Europe.
