Terminals for Eurostar passengers have been established in both the Amsterdam Central and Rotteredam Central stations, where tickets are inspected and security and passport checks are undertaken.

A treaty between Britain, France Belgium and the Netherlands permitting the service, which reduces travel times by an hour, was signed in July.

London - Amsterdam services were introduced in February 2018. The first direct Amsterdam - London service departed at 07.47 from the Amsterdam Central. There was no ceremony due to the Covid-19 pandemic, with the train reportedly almost empty.
