Eurotunnel is the car and train service running between Folkestone, England, and Calais, France, via the channel tunnel.

The fastest method of crossing the channel with your car, the Eurotunnel train travels between the UK and France in just 35 minutes. Eurotunnel crossings are frequent, with up to 3 departures an hour at peak times and with no fuel supplements or luggage restrictions, choosing Eurotunnel is choosing the hassle free way to travel.

The company was first formed in 1986 and completed the tunnel at a cost of roughly £9.5 billion, resulting in approximately 50 kilometres of double track within the main tunnels, as well as significant surface level terminal facilities at both Folkestone and Calais. The system consists of shuttle trains conveying cars and coaches between the two destinations.

The UK Eurotunnel terminal is based near Folkestone with a dedicated motorway exit at junction 11A of the M20. In France, the terminal is based just outside Calais off junction 42 of the A16 motorway.

Eurotunnel Customer Reviews

  • "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.
