The 2 Cities, 1 Day promotion hits LA next week (10/10-10/13), allowing Angelenos to snap a fun photo in a booth featuring back drops and props from both cities – without ever leaving the U.S. Travelers outside of LA can visit the promo website to upload a photo and add the London and Paris backdrops, and all are invited to share on social media using #LondontoParis. The promotion includes a sweepstakes to win a grand prize of a trip to both cities for two, including airfare, hotel accommodations and of course, travel on Eurostar.
Eurostar, the high-speed passenger rail service between the UK and mainland Europe, today launched a new promotion to highlight the company’s popular London to Paris route and bring the brand to life for travelers in the U.S. market as a “must do” experience to include in any trip to Europe. U.S. travel bookings on Eurostar.com have increased by 25% in the past year, with London to Paris being the most popular route selected for one-way bookings.
The Eurostar 2 Cities, 1 Day promotion brings the fun of experiencing London and Paris to life through a traveling consumer engagement event in New York and Los Angeles. At a colorful photo booth featuring back drops from both cities, brand ambassadors will invite people to pose with themed props to capture a photo representing the London to Paris route. With the high-speed route taking just over two hours, Eurostar makes day trips between London and Paris a reality for travelers seeking rich experiences in both cities in a limited time frame.
Digital photos will be provided onsite, and event attendees can also retrieve their photos from the promotion website (www.eurostar2cities1day.com), where they can enter the Eurostar 2 Cities, 1 Day sweepstakes and share on social media to win a grand prize of a trip to both cities.
The prize includes a trip for two to London and Paris, including round trip, coach-class air transportation for two, Eurostar Business Premier (equivalent to First Class) travel for two from London to Paris (or vice versa) and three nights luxury hotel accommodations in each city.
U.S. travelers outside of New York and Los Angeles can gain entry to the contest by visiting the sweepstakes website and uploading a photo in the themed frame and sharing on social media channels using the hashtag #LondontoParis.
