Get a box of delights

4th April 2003 at 01:00
You (or anyone else you think deserves a treat this summer) can hit the ground running in Paris with Eurostar's new gift pack, Paris in a Box. Besides a voucher for a standard-class day return ticket on Eurostar, it includes a one-day Metro pass and a Paris guide and map so you can head for the sights as soon as you arrive at Gare du Nord. And if you're there for the shopping, there's a privilege card offering reductions at Printemps Paris.

Eurostar is offering a free Paris in a Box pack, worth pound;75, for one Friday reader. To enter our draw, email by April 11, marking your message Eurostar offer.

Also just launched is Lille in a Box (pound;65): you get the Eurostar voucher for return travel Waterloo-Lille, guidebook and reductions at Printemps Lille and at three restaurants. Upgrades to first-class on Eurostar (including a three-course meal with drinks) cost an extra pound;50.

Gift packs are on sale until September 29 from the Eurostar Contact Centre: 0870 6000 705 (pound;3 booking fee) or in person at the Waterloo and Ashford International terminals.

Travel must be booked at least seven days before departure (longer notice is advised for school holidays) and must be completed by December 31.
