Eurotunnel Le Shuttle information, prices, timetables and tickets.
Using Eurotunnel Le Shuttle is so easy - just drive on and stay with your vehicle
in brightly-lit, air-conditioned carriages. You can walk around inside the shuttle
and toilets are available, and visual display screens keep you informed about your
journey. Staff are available to answer any questions. Customs are cleared before
boarding so you drive straight off and away when you arrive. And there are some
fantastic bargains on offer by
The shuttle runs four times an hour at peak periods. The platform to platform time
is about 35 minutes and loading and unloading is quick and easy. As you drive down
the M20 towards Folkestone and Dover the slip road to the terminal is clearly sign-posted.
This is the quickest way to get your car to France, but, unless you like tunnels
and trains, perhaps the least exciting. But you won't get seasick!
Minimum check-in time 30 minutes (1 hour when travelling with a pet), but there
is a wide range of shops and restaurants at the terminals, so leave some time to
take advantage of these.
Off Peak Summer Rates: You will save about 20% off normal summer (May-September)
rates if you travel Folkestone to Calais between 2.00pm and 6.00am, or Calais to
Folkestone between midnight and 2.00pm. These discounts are automatically applied
when you book Eurotunnel Le Shuttle online.

Ticket Flexibility: Customers can arrive up to 2 hours before and after
their booked departure time and will be offered the next available departure at
no extra cost subject to individual ticket type terms and conditions and ticket
validity. BUT if your ticket is for a less than 5 days break or is for the
off-peak times referred to above, and you turn up outside those times or dates,
you will be asked to pay a supplement at full public rates. Note also that during
the peak summer months weekend travel is dearer than weekday, so if you have a weekday
ticket and turn up at the weekend you will again be asked to pay a supplement.
LPG: Please note that you cannot use Eurotunnel Le Shuttle if your vehicle
is propelled by Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG). This not the same as LRP (Lead Replacement
Petrol), which is perfectly acceptable.
