In the old days you'd tell your lover to meet you outside the train station, have an old school snog and then tell them where you were going.

Lovers would disappear to wherever without the outside world being able to invade their happiness - without smart phones recording their every move inviting people to comment on every photo.

Now Eurostar is taking romance into the digital age and have come up with a way how you can surprise your loved one with a voucher and they can pick the destination.

Obviously, you will have the nervous wait hoping they are going to go with you.

A Eurostar spokesman said: "In just a couple of clicks a voucher is delivered straight to their inbox, allowing you to avoid the hassle of the high street.

"Travelling by Eurostar, there’s a city to appeal to every type of traveller - whether it’s a romantic weekend à deux in Paris, a gourmet extravaganza in Lyon, or a wine tour to Provence, the Eurostar e-voucher makes a European mini break easier than ever."

He added: "To choose your personalised voucher (between £10-£250), log on to, select the value, add a personal message and send direct to their inbox.

"Once received, the recipient can redeem the e-voucher to travel to any of Eurostar’s destinations throughout the year.

"Just make sure they take you with them."

With quick and convenient check-in, a seamless city-centre to city-centre journey, and a generous baggage allowance, Eurostar is the ideal way to travel to the continent.

Passengers travelling on the new e320 train, can unwind in more spacious surroundings and enjoy free wi-fi and over 300 hours of entertainment – all streamed straight to their phone, tablet or laptop. Plus, why not order a bottle of bubbly to make the journey extra special.

Eurostar passengers can also take advantage of two for one entry into a range of top museums and galleries including Musée d’Orsay in Paris, Bozar in Brussels, Le Palais des Beaux-Arts in Lille, Musée des Confluences in Lyon, and MuCEM in Marseille all by simply showing their Eurostar tickets.
