Touring Europe might feel like a faraway, expensive dream. But what if we told you that you can make that dream a reality this summer, for under $50? It’s true, and the Eurostar rail line can make it happen with discounted rates, right now.

Per The Independent, the deal costs 39 pounds, or approximately $49.29 in American dollars at the moment. And the discounted rate will take you to some of the most iconic cities in Europe: Brussels, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Lille, and Paris.

The catch? You’ll have to get yourself to London in order to catch the Eurostar from London’s St Pancras International. But once you’re there, you are about a two hour train ride away from spending the week touring the many incredible museums in Paris, visiting the Grand Palace in Brussels, or doing whatever it is people do in Amsterdam (no judgment here).

The fare is valid as long as seats last, and for travel between March 5, 2024 and June 12, 2024, which is a nice wide range to plan a vacation in. It’s also 39 pounds each way, and does not include hotel stay or any amenities, as well as only granting you Standard Class seats.

Some good news, though, in case you feel a little lost figuring out what to do, and where to stay once you reach your train destination: Eurostar can help there too with hotel + train packages, as well as activity ideas in the area. And while you might not be able to combine the sub-$50 rate with the hotel rate, it's still fun to browse for last-minute Amsterdam vacations, or stays at Disneyland Paris.

So what are you waiting for? As the Quad City DJS might say, come on ride that train. Just not quite yet, because the deal doesn't kick off until March. Calm down, Quad City DJs.
