Wasn't sure whether to post this in Travel or the Europe forum so I'll give it a go here.

Will be traveling from Paris to London on October 27 and was pricing the Eurostar tickets. On Eurostar's website, the one way trip would be 155 EUR but on trainline.com that exact ticket is 134 EUR. Not a frequent Eurostar traveler here, so I'm wondering if the third party sites are legit and if there is any downside to booking there?

Thanks in advance.

I always book direct. If it is even a legit operator, should there are any issues along the way, delays, cancellations, strikes etc... a third party vendor maybe a little or no help. When on a vacation, this is especially important.

Disregard...my bad. I just went back to double check and eurostar quoted me in USD while trainline quoted me in EUR. Ends up being the same

Sorry!

This, always. Third party sites are usually okay until there's an issue, then it's really not okay.
