If your train is delayed
If your Eurostar train is delayed, your rights are similar to an international flight delay. If the train is delayed by more than 60 minutes, you are entitled to food and drink but this will be dependent upon the length of the delay.
If you experience a 60 to 119 minutes delay, you can claim back 25% of the ticket price in compensation. Over 120 minutes, the compensation rises to 50% of the ticket price. The calculation is based on the cost of the journey leg and not the cost of the return ticket.
The refund must be greater than 4 Euros before a pay out will be agreed.
If the train breaks down on the track, Eurostar must also provide alternate transport to your end destination.
If your train is cancelled
When trains are cancelled if the reason for the cancellation is within Eurostar's control the same rules applies as a delayed train. If your train is cancelled and as a result there will be a delay in arrival at your destination station of more than 60 minutes, you will be entitled to either a full refund of your ticket or you may wish to postpone your journey to a later date. If your train is delayed or cancelled, meaning you cannot reasonably arrive at your end destination then compensation should cover any reasonable costs for overnight accommodation.
