Eurotunnel is the car train service running between Folkestone and Calais via the channel tunnel.
The fastest method of crossing the channel with your car, the Eurotunnel train travels between the UK and France in just 35 minutes. Eurotunnel crossings are frequent, with up to 3 departures an hour at peak times and with no fuel supplements or luggage restrictions, choosing Eurotunnel is choosing the hassle free way to travel.
The UK Eurotunnel terminal is based near Folkestone with a dedicated motorway exit at junction 11A of the M20. In France, the terminal is based just outside Calais off junction 42 of the A16 motorway.
Chose this service due the convenience of the journey time, for a day trip 30 mins into France, The price was incredible for a car and 5 people, your are greeted with number plate recognition at either port, and this therefore checking in is fairly simple, my only complaint being unclear directions to the train, I think this could be worked on better. The train was great, polite staff and efficient boarding and disembarking.

Simple booking system. Turned up hour before as information states and were offered choice of getting earlier train than we booked. Train ran to time. Staff answered kids questions. All straightforward. Great experience.

"First time on le shuttle"
Very pleased with first time on le shuttle, trains punctual, very organised checkin and loading process. A bit more expensive than ferry but felt more relaxed with none of the queues into Dover and a much shorter journey time. Likewise on return very easy to find terminal and process very quick. Would definitely recommend.
