According to The Points Guy, you can use The Platinum Card® from American Express, and The Business Platinum® Card from American Express, to access Eurostar Business Premier lounges in Europe. This perk has long been available to holders of the European version of the American Express Platinum card, which can be used to access Eurostar Business Premier train lounges in London, Paris, and Brussels. While this is a benefit of the European cards, by not being a benefit of the US cards, your mileage may vary.
What You Get
- Only the cardholder is granted access to the lounge – No guests are allowed
You can access the following lounges:
- Eurostar Business Premier lounge at London St. Pancras International Station, Ebbsfleet International
- Eurostar Business Premier lounge at Paris Gare Du Nord
- Eurostar Business Premier lounge at Brussels Midi/Zuid
How The Three Lounges Stack Up
Having used all three lounges in the last 18 months, by far the nicest and most spacious is at Paris Gare Du Nord. The London and Brussels lounges are much smaller due to the architecture and size of the buildings. The Paris lounge, in particular, offers a better experience and a wider choice of food and drink than a lot of airport lounges, including many Priority Pass lounges.
Accessing the Eurostar lounges can be a life-saver if you need some peace and quiet to catch up on some work. This is especially true in London where the entire departure area is relatively small and has one small establishment serving food and drink (Café Nero), that tends to have massive crowds at peak times. Even though the London Business Premier lounge is small, compared to what’s going on outside it’s an oasis of calm at peak times.
