Eurostar: a good offer?

Those nice people at the Guardian have emailed me with notice of an offer in tomorrow’s paper. The deal is two-for-one city breaks via Eurostar to Paris, Brussels or Lille. This is just 10 days after the paper reported:

Eurostar passengers were queuing again at St Pancras International station, in London, from the early hours. Thousands had to wait in the cold for up to eight hours yesterday, with queues snaking more than half a mile around the terminus. The company urged passengers not to travel. "We are asking all customers booked to travel before Christmas to refund or exchange their tickets free of charge if their travel is not essential," a statement said. ……..Last night first aiders were drafted in at St Pancras where thousands of passengers had been queuing for hours after Eurostar services were cancelled. St John Ambulance were asked to send eight crew members as a precaution while many waited in the bitter cold outside the station.

To take up the offer you’ll need to travel before the end of March. Now, remind me: when does the bad winter weather finish?
