I've read that train tickets can't be purchased too far out, but there are sites that offer tickets from Edinburgh to London and from London to Amsterdam for a trip in May (ex - thetrainline.com / nsinternational.nl). Does it make sense to buy these now or will the tickets from Virgin and/or Eurostar be even less?
On the LON-AMS route, it's suggested to allow at least 45 min for transfer and check-in, but the routing shows only 40 min. Is this doable for a slow-walking senior?
17:05 Brux.Midi/Bruss.Zuid Eurostar - Brussels South
Change track - 17:22
17:45Bruxelles Midi-Brussels South
Suggestions appreciated! Thanks!
