Eurotunnel Customer Reviews

  • "Great to be back travelling"

    This was my first trip to France since November 2019, so a well overdue visit to see the family. My ticket had originally been purchased in 2020 and I was very grateful for the flexibility in changing my trip I believe 4 times. Although i travelled the day after all the various issues following the weekend, I left early and made it early so was well pleased. There were delays and I travelled an hour after scheduled time however that wasn't an issue at all.
