EUROSTAR has launched a two-for-one offer for Bluewater customers after sales from the shopping centre's ticket agent outstripped the £1million mark.
The high-speed train service launched the deal for travel to mainland Europe from the stations at Ebbsfleet and Ashford last Wednesday.
It will run until May 31, with tickets valid for travel between May 6 and August 31.
The launch of the offer coincides with the Eurostar shop at Bluewater reaching £1 million worth of ticket sales since it opened last May.
Lucky traveller Helen Harris, from New Barn, was presented with a pair of return tickets to Paris to celebrate this major sales milestone.
Nick Mercer, Eurostar's commercial director, said: "This is a great deal that will help people across the south east realise that Ebbsfleet International is just as convenient for travelling to mainland Europe as Bluewater is for shopping.
"Both the station and the shopping centre share the same advantages of easy access from the M25 and ample parking right beside the main facilities.
"We are delighted that so many Bluewater shoppers have already bought tickets for high-speed rail travel from our two stations in Kent, taking sales past the one million mark."
To take advantage of the deal shoppers should present a receipt from any Bluewater retailer at the Eurostar shop when buying their tickets.
Travellers can connect with Eurostar services at both Ebbsfleet International and Ashford International for free from any station on the Southeastern trains network or the Fastrack
