Also much more flexible, you can arrive two hours either side of booking and board at no extra cost if space ( so not at busy times!) Takes no time to board, we have arrived 15 mins prior to time and gone straight on. And no time to disembark either so we feel we get on our way faster. Important if you are only having a week, you can waste half a day getting on and off the ferry. Remember you lose an hour on arrival in France. We pay about 90 each way, sometimes less....used to be about 50
    We are going by eurotunnel although I never thought in a thousand years I would go on that !
    Pauls convinced me and for the sake of half an hour I'll grit my teeth.
    Maybe next year will do the ferry.


    Travelling at 3.00 in the morning to free up another day.

    Still haven't renewed my passport I'm cutting it fine 😬
    Rise free from care before the dawn
    and seek new adventures.....

    The tunnel will be fine just go to sleep, that's what I do. Grab half an hour kip and then your off. Have a fabulous time
    When you don't care what anyone thinks of you, you have reached an awesome level of freedom

    You may find the chunnel disappointing, then. You drive on, sit in the motorhome for a little while, then drive off. Apart from the beginning and end where you are going across points, it is a very smooth, quiet ride.

    Love using the tunnel, very slick operation, always book a red eye slot. I always take a dive tank with me too, just in case.

    Done the chunnel more times than I can remember, always have a nap in bed.

    Yes, it is very smooth and quiet. But still a wee clickety clack of the rails. More soothing than annoying.

    We normally use the tunnel, its quick, easy and efficient (if you arrive early there is often the option to take an earlier crossing). Their customer service is excellent, twice we have had to cancel because of illnesses, despite having paid with Tesco vouchers they happily changed our crossing dates.

    Last year, for the first time, we took a ferry, having managed to get a pet friendly cabin on the Portsmouth to Le Havre crossing. We cancelled our return crossing in favour of the tunnel, we disliked the ferry so much. Needless to say, it's the tunnel in future for us.
