Time to bid adieu to the days where you could carry your favourite wines from France to reminisce your trip. Or if you’ve been grabbing a six-pack from Belgium to enjoy a pint at home, then it’s goodbye to that too.

Eurostar has officially banned passengers from carrying any spirits on board. The current allowance is one bottle of wine, and four cans of beer per passenger.  These rules are said to be designed to assure a “safe, happy, and healthy environment”. Everyone seems to be enraged over the new rule. 

"That's crazy. You mean I can no longer bring a six-pack of Belgian beer back home in my bag after a trip to Brussels? Is there a way to convince them to change?" wrote Will Roberts.

Maurits Wever said "That's a pity. We're going on holiday to the Scottish islands of Arran and Islay. We wanted to buy some local whiskies, but these aren't allowed on @Eurostar."

Mark Smith, Rail Expert and Founder of Seat61 "Eurostar has been around for over 20 years," he said. "Why is carrying alcohol now a problem? I don't believe society has changed that much.

Passengers who want to transport prohibited alcohol are advised to use the firm's luggage service, which charges a minimum fee of £30 per item.
