The London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games (LOCOG) yesterday announced that Eurostar has become a Tier Three sponsor of London 2012, the 30th domestic sponsor.
The high-speed rail company has become Official International Rail Services Provider and will provide London 2012 with arrival and departure services at St Pancras International for those competing and working at the Games who are travelling to London on its trains. It will also provide international rail services for London 2012's operational requirements. Outside of its sponsorship with LOCOG, Eurostar will naturally be carrying many spectators from mainland Europe to and from the Games in 2012 itself.
LOCOG Chair Seb Coe commented: 'We are thrilled that Eurostar has come on board as a London 2012 partner. They are an iconic brand with a strong emphasis on quality and I know they will ensure that everyone coming to London 2012 by rail, either as a competitor or spectator, has the best travel experience possible from the moment they start their journey.'
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
