Eurostar has launched an app that turns your phone into a ticket!

The free smartphone application allows passengers to book journeys on-the-go and have them sent direct to their phones.

The Eurostar app, which is available for iPhone and Android devices, allows passengers to book and manage journeys between the UK and Paris, Brussels and Lille.

Passengers who book journeys using the Eurostar app will immediately get their ticket with an electronic barcode on their device.

Other functions of the Eurostar App include live service updates to keep passengers informed of disruptions and a personal profile page, which provides an option to store address details and seating preferences.

It is one of a number of new services, including a mobile version of eurostar.com, including a simplified homepage, the ability to book journeys and access the operator's loyalty points scheme.

Nick Mercer, commercial director for Eurostar said: "Our aim is to make using our services as easy and seamless as possible.

"So with the majority of our customers now owning a smartphone, we are really pleased that we are able to provide a new suite of services that make booking and checking in even easier for them.

"The new Eurostar App and mobile website represent the start of many exciting mobile developments for Eurostar, which will help ensure we become the first choice operator of short haul travel from the UK to Europe."

The Eurostar App is available for free from the App Store on iPhone or the Android Market on Android devices.
