The Eurotunnel car train service runs between Folkestone and Calais via the channel tunnel in just 35 minutes. Once onboard passengers stay with their vehicle throughout the channel tunnel crossing in bright, air-conditioned carriages. You can sit back and relax, or get out and stretch your legs.
Pre-boarding at both ends there's plenty to do at the Eurotunnel terminal with a selection of shops, fast food restaurants and bars.
Please Note: Whilst we have taken great care in making our Le Shuttle guide as accurate as possible, onboard facilities, services and entertainment may vary depending on the date and time of year that you travel, facilities mentioned may change without notification.

Good experience yet again on Eurotunnel. I use the tunnel maybe 6 times a year now having dispensed completely with the ferries. Just so much quicker & easier! Always get put on an earlier train for no charge which is great. Plus got some bargain booze at the Calais Terminal this trip. What's not to like :-)

"Swift, efficient and professional service - highly recommend"
Visited Belgium for the weekend. And could not have been easier. 30 minutes after driving in to the shuttle carriage we arrived in France! And a few minutes later we were driving north to our destination for brunch in Brugge.

"trip to the cotwolds. Fantastic!"
We took the eurotunnel.Never been so quick in traveling to Gr.Britain! Everything was flooding in eachother just like a piece of cake. No problems with tickets. Even when we came back,taking our tickets in Folkstone was really smooth! Corse it is still lot of money.But if time is money...... Thank you Direct Ferries, we will come back.

"Direct ferries "
We've used direct ferries before as they are reasonably priced and haven't had any problems also trains are on time and we get through with the dog without any problems would recommend to others.

Did not know direct ferries did Euro tunnel tickets and at such a great price!! I've already told a friend about it, he had booked a ferry for the same price but at a really inconvenient time. He'll be biking through you next time. Thanks.

"Customer care excellent"
Despite the difficulties staff must be experiencing at the current time (including impatient customers, as witnessed on this trip), every staff member we encountered was courteous, patient, helpful and doing their utmost under the circumstances.
