Although direct services will run to the Netherlands, passengers travelling in the reverse direction will need to change trains in Brussels, where passport checks and security screening will be carried out.

Eurostar will restart its services to Disneyland Paris from August 2.

The routes have been closed since March due to the drop in demand caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

The train operator has continued to run a reduced service between London, Paris and Brussels throughout lockdown.

Eurostar is offering more flexibility on all its fares, enabling passengers who book throughout the rest of the year to alter their travel plans up to 14 days before departure without a fee.

The new flexible fares will start at £39 each way and tickets are also available for Christmas breaks.

The firm said all travellers must wear a face mask as part of additional hygiene measures.

Children under the age of 11 in France and the UK, and children under the age of 12 in Belgium do not have to wear face masks.

Passengers will be seated "at a safe distance apart" and trains will be "deep-cleaned" before every journey.

As onboard catering services are currently closed, passengers are encouraged to bring plenty of fluids when travelling.

Customers can carry bottled drinks, or cans, through check-in, if they’re sealed. The 100ml restrictions don’t apply.
