Channel Tunnel Fares

How to find the Best Channel Tunnel Fares

Before you find the right fare, decide whether you need the Eurotunnel (with the car or motorbike) or Eurostar (passenger only) train fares.

Journeys by Car across the Channel

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 take the Eurotunnel train.

There are 2 main Channel Tunnel fares to choose from when you take the Channel Tunnel train.

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

    To get the best prices, 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 Channel Tunnel Fares

    To keep the price down, you could book a Standard single fare for one leg of your journey, and a Flexiplus fare for the other. Many cross-Channel travellers like to have flexible travel times for their return journey, so they aren't under pressure to make a set train time. After a long time travelling across the continent, it's comforting to know you can just hop on the next available train, whatever time you arrive by car. Book Eurotunnel tickets here...

    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 30 for a single trip. But it's possible to mix and match ferry and tunnel tickets. Use our ferry and tunnel comparison here to find the best single fare prices. That way you can compare all Channel crossing prices in one go and find the right ticket and journey for your needs. Perhaps plan a slower (but cheaper) outward journey by ferry with a faster return using the Channel tunnel. This way the price will balance out and your journey needn't be expensive at all!
