Prices for the Eurotunnel can greatly vary, depending on what time of year you are travelling, and how you are travelling, but getting cheap Eurotunnel tickets has never been easier, especially using our easy fare booking tool.
It is worth noting Eurotunnel check-in times are usually at least 45 minutes before your departure. This gives you time for security checks and to use the terminal facilities which include restaurants, cash machines, a bureau de change, toilets and a 24-hour information desk, while your pets can be exercised in the designated area.
The UK Eurotunnel terminal is based near Folkestone, Kent, with a dedicated motorway exit at Junction 11A of the M20, so it’s very easy to reach from almost anywhere in England. The French Eurotunnel terminal is located just outside Calais, off Junction 42 of the A16 motorway; the Euro tunnel journey from London to Paris usually takes around six hours by car.

"No issue with Eurotunnel but Direct Ferries another matter......."
There was an issue with my booking and they said they would refund as long as i had another booking. They were happy to refund but that was Eurotunnel's rules. I made another booking and was told I would get a full refund. A week later, and no refund forthcoming, I called Direct Ferries and told they would refund me minus £35 for admin. It wasn't what was agreed first and confirmed on the second call.

"Folkstone - Calais return with Eurotunnel"
My wife and I have used this service for some years. It is not the cheapest way to cross the channel but it is secure, efficient and very quick. After a long drive, the opportunity to get a bite to eat, a drink and a comfort break at Folkstone is not only welcome, it is conveniently situated. Calais also provide this service but it is not so convenient. On arrival at Folkstone the self booking-in system is quick and easy to use and, when possible also offers alternative departure times. From there all you have to do is follow directions and within minutes you have gone through all the security controls and parked up in the convenient waiting area, and comfort stop, where there are clear signs indicating your boarding time. Once on the train you are in France in 35 minutes.
