How to find the Best Channel Tunnel Deals

Before you find the best deals, decide whether you need the Eurotunnel (with the car, van or motorbike) or Eurostar (passenger only) train.

Eurotunnel operate the car trains through the Channel Tunnel, between Folkestone (near Dover) and Calais. Journey times take 35 minutes. It is not possible to drive your car through the Channel Tunnel - you must board the Eurotunnel car train.

  • Standard tickets - with set travel times
  • Overnight tickets - for short stay trips
  • Prices start at 44 return for an Overnight ticket, and 49 Standard single. Book Eurotunnel tickets here...

    To get the best deals, there are 2 simple rules:

  • Always book in advance
  • For standard tickets, travel at a quieter time to get the best deals.
  • Mix and Match Ferry and Tunnel Tickets

    Ferry fares are cheaper than Channel Tunnel fares, for example P&O and SeaFrance ferry fares start at around 29 for a single trip, and Norfolkline at just 19 (note that these fares are limited to just a few tickets per crossing).

    It is possible to mix and match ferry and tunnel tickets. Use our ferry and tunnel comparison here to find the best single ferry and tunnel ticket prices.

    Eurotunnel Standard Fare

    The Standard fare for the Channel Tunnel starts at 49 for a single trip, 98 for a return. The 49 price is available for the off peak times - usually 10pm to 6am - and only if you book well in advance. Booking closer to your time of travel, and travelling at busy, peak times means your tickets become more expensive.

    Overnight Fares

    These are the cheapest fares offered by Eurotunnel, at 44 per car return. As the name suggests, the tickets are specifically for an outward and return journey with 1 overnight stay in France in between. These tickets cannot be used as "single" fares.

    Any Extras?

    There are no annoying hidden costs in the prices for the Channel Tunnel. Tax is included in the price, as is ALL the luggage. Remember, unless you are buying a ticket specifically for cyclists or foot passengers, the price of your ticket is per car, no matter how many people or how much luggage. Perfect for taking all your ski, cycling, surfing, golfing or camping equipment. And perfect for taking a group of friends or all the family.
