Eurostar is offering customers the opportunity to head on over toAmsterdam for as little as £30.
The Channel Tunnel train has put tickets from London’s StPancrasto Amsterdam for the bargain price, taking on the airlines as the ticket price also includes a baggage allowance of two bags up to 85cm each.
The bargain deal is only available to Facebook and Twitter users on the special portal,snap.eurostar.com.
Of course, there are restrictions to the tickets as there have been with other promotions from the company in the past.
Like with its Brussels or Paris deals, customers can only get the tickets at that price in the morning or afternoon – however, there is currently only one morning and one afternoon train that heads to and from the Dutch city.

Eurostar is also offering tickets to Rotterdam for the same price which is £5 less than the normal lead-in fare – with the deal finishing on 14 February.
Also, dates of travel are limited between 25 and 28 February with a journey to Rotterdam taking just over three hours, and to Amsterdam just under four hours.
However, the £30 tickets are slightly more expensive than some airfares asThe Independent reportseasyJet is offering flights from Gatwick,Luton, Stansted andSouthendto Amsterdam for £24 or less on 5 March.
An airline spokesperson said: “easyJet flies between London and Amsterdam up to 21 times a day and carries over 2.2millionpassengers annually.

“We remain focused on our own strategy of growing our network, including at Amsterdam and providing easy and affordable fares.”
However, the airline doesn’t offer a free luggage service so it could end up costing more than the Eurostar.
Eurostar only started offering the train service from London StPancrasvia Brussels and Rotterdam to Amsterdam Centraal in April 2018.
The Independent reported that the company said this latest addition to its services has been so successful that it is increasing services by 58 per cent – adding an extra daily service from June 2019.
