    Hello,

    Am I correct in believing that a eurostar ticket to Brussels Midi can be used to travel within the bruxelles metropolitan area?

    Thanks

    The Eurostar website says so.

    And it is also correct. The ES ticket is valid to 'Zone Bruxelles/Brussels', essentially all SNCB/NMBS stations within the main area of the city eg. Schuman, Luxembourg. However, it is not valid on the metro/bus/tram or to the Airport.

    Select ABS|Eurostar:
    "Eurostar tickets from or to Brussels-Zuid/Bruxelles-Midi (Brussels) are valid within the entire Brussels zone."

    And as to what GeraldFiennes said:
    1) There is no metro/tram to the airport.
    2) Bus is operated by 2 different companies, not by the train company.
    3) Train station is outside of the Brussels zone anyway, and needs a Diabolo supplement
