Why Visit Paris
For People Who Want To Visit Paris Someday


Short Breaks Ltd Review


I'm based just outside London. As you might expect from someone who runs a website devoted to Paris, Paris is a city I love. There was a time when I would travel to Paris by air, because it was the only way to get there from London. Paris is only just over 100 miles away from London, or just an hour by 'plane. The difficult part is getting to and from the airports at each end. It takes a lot of time, it's expensive, and there are restrictions on what and how much you can take with you.

London to Paris Via Eurostar

But since 1994, there has been a tunnel between the UK and France, which goes under the English Channel that separates the two countries. And since then, when I go to Paris from London, I always use that tunnel to go by train - via Eurostar.

Short Breaks Ltd is a specialist tour operator offering quality city-breaks packages by Eurostar. If you are not familiar with Eurostar, it is a train operator, which operates a range of rail journeys from London (St Pancras International) to Paris (Gare du Nord) and Brussels (Gare du Midi). The trains run under the English Channel and operate direct between the City centres, enabling you to get all the benefits of rapid rail travel. You travel in comfort, arriving relaxed and refreshed, with the added benefit of fewer baggage restrictions than you get on air travel.

Short Breaks Ltd utilises Eurostar services to offer its city-breaks packages to Paris, Brussels, Bruges, Lille and Antwerp. They also offer Eurostar breaks to Disneyland Resort Paris.

There are direct Eurostar services to Paris, Disneyland Paris, Lille and Brussels. The other City breaks offered by Short Breaks, such as Bruges, Antwerp, Ghent, Leuven and Mechelen are indirect, which means a change of train.

The packages include hotel accommodation, as well as rail travel. It's important to understand that you can not book just the rail travel with Short Breaks, nor can you just book a hotel. They offer City breaks, which are inclusive of both the rail travel and hotel.

The hotels they offer - there are about 40 of them in Paris - have been individually inspected by the company for quality. Short Breaks is Eurostar's largest direct sell tour operator and is fully bonded by both ABTA and ATOL, which gives you an extra element of financial security and peace of mind.

Short Breaks is proud of the various awards it has received, such as:

"Best Short Breaks Tour Operator to France 2010" - as voted by Atout France

"Favourite European Short Breaks Tour Operator" - Evening Standard Awards

"Best Eurostar Branded Website" - Eurostar Sales Awards

If you travel to Paris with Short Breaks Ltd, their online booking process enables you either to select from prepackaged special offers, or to book your train journey with a 'dynamically packaged' hotel option. This means that the site will check that the train booking you want and the hotel you select are both available at the same time.

If you are visiting either London or Paris from overseas, you can utilise Short Breaks to combine the two very easily. Both cities have so much to offer.

Disneyland Paris

Disneyland Paris is a major attraction for the whole family, but especially for the kids. For travellers from the UK, Short Breaks Ltd offers a range of holidays to Disneyland Paris, using the direct rail links provided by Eurostar.

The Short Breaks website has everything you need to plan your break to Disneyland Paris via Eurostar. It brings you information about the Disneyland Parks, a guide to what's on, including the various shows and parades, as well as the seasonal events and latest special offers.

Short Breaks Ltd enables you to book your trip, including a stay at one of the six Disney hotels - Disneyland Hotel, Hotel New York, Newport Bay Club, Sequoia Lodge, Hotel Cheyenne, Hotel Santa Fe - or at one of five associated hotels.

And don't forget that Eurostar takes you straight from the heart of London, direct to the Disneyland Paris gates.

Travel By Car

Short Breaks Ltd actually offer one further option. You can also book a break by car with them, with a mix of hotel and car travel via Eurotunnel or Car ferry across the English Channel.
