Eurotunnel Customer Reviews

  • "Cars with wide tyres/alloys watch out"

    All in all a very pleasant and quick ride. But being my first time I did not know how narrow the cab is. My car has bigger and wider alloys which got damaged. For that reason I would recommend cars that are modified in the same way request the bottom cab where bigger vehicles usually go. My car is a c class with pokey rims and if I use the Eurotunnel again I will be asking to be put with larger vehicles on the bottom cab.

  • "Difficulty changing a booking"

    I previously entered a review where I complained that DF would not allow me to change a booking less that 24 hours before the time booked, even though Eurotunnel were happy to do so. You replied saying it was possible to change the booking up the scheduled time. You are mistaken. I tried to make the change, but got a pop-up saying I could not change the booking as it was less than 24 hours before the time booked. Fortunatley Eurotunnel could make the change for me. I would stress that the change was not due to our capriciousness, but due to the fact that we were advised the evening before not to drive in the south of England on Feb 18 due to gales. Please note that replies below refer to Eurotunnel and not to DF. DF would get a significantly poorer review.

  • "En route to Italian Alps"

    An efficient and speedy journey. We must have missed submitting some passenger data when booking online and so had to attend an office in the shopping complex. Just as well we were early . This requirement Could be made clearer during the booking process.  Also a very strange and confusing route to the trains winding through the parking area. Not sure why it is like this.,overall a great way to cross the Channel

    Fortunately everything was working at the tunnel so we were loaded earlier than our booking. Very pleasant staff who were all helpful and polite.
