"Le Shuttle V Easy and more flexible"

Reviewed 11 July 2014 by Andrew

prices now seem much more competitive than taking a boat. Certainly more flexible in case you turn up early or late there is a 2 hr window in which there is no charge to take a different time (as long as there is space). compare that to the boats where they will squeeze you for an extra charge. Direct Ferries website is useful since you can see at a glance what the comparisons are between boat or Shuttle. You are free to choose either but remember we all need a little flexibility since this is usually just a small part of a 500km+ journey. Check-in is a doddle since there is a camera which recocgnises yr plate at the gate so immediately knows yr name and yr booking.

"mixed experience"

Reviewed 10 July 2014 by John

Nothing beats the engineering achievement and feeling of actually driving onto a train. However, try to go to the toilet before getting on because those on board are dismal. Also, the catering has deteriorated with there being only chains. I was most disappointed to see that Starbucks had taken over Brioche Dorée. In Coquelles side, there is a fantastic exibition on the making of the tunnel and a video that I did not have the time to watch in its entirety. Lastly, I am impressed that most of the staff are bilingual French and English (as am I), however, when making announcements, they should aim to speak more slowly and clearly - do not equate speed of speech with fluency. This applies to both your English and French native personnel. However, I go back to what it is I am actually doing: crossing the Channel in the longest train tunnel in the world. A marvellous achievement and experience and my wife doesn't get sea sick.

"Trip to Calais & Return"

Reviewed 06 July 2014 by Michael

It was a most enjoyable experience traveling on the train rather than a ferry. Very easy process to book in and get on the train, friendly helpful staff. It seemed to take a lot less time than the predicted 35 minutes for the journey. I will travel this way again if I need to cross the channel.

"Effortless "

Reviewed 02 July 2014 by Anonymous

I took some nervous and worried parents to Paris on the euro tunnel and it's actually quicker and more effortless than taking the ferry which I did a lone a week before. It's such good value and even better in comforts. Only thing I wish they had was a better lounge arose or shopping area a little closer to the terminal. A cup of British tea before setting off would have been the icing on the cake!
