Taking your Car on Eurotunnel to France this Summer

Taking your Car on Eurotunnel to France this Summer

The Eurotunnel service has remained open during the crisis and expects to be a popular option for travellers to France this summer. The Folkestone-Calais tunnel allows you to drive on to the shuttle and stay in your car, in your ‘safe bubble’. Automated check-in systems mean you do not have to come into contact with anyone.

With French travel restrictions now being lifted for trips within Europe, here is a summary of information you need to know if you are considering using Eurotunnel:

  • Terminal buildings are closed except for the toilets so make sure you buy food and drink for the crossing before arriving.
  • Toilets on the train are not available, due to social distancing measures, so use the ones in the loading allocation lanes before the crossing.
  • If you have a Flexiplus ticket, the usual main lounge is closed.
  • When travelling from Folkstone to Calais, you need to fill in Advanced Passenger Information forms once you have a booking reference and booking password. You do this on the Eurotunnel website. It is the same information required for plane tickets and ferries too.
  • You do not need to wear a mask while sitting in your car for the trip.
  • In order to reassure clients, Eurotunnel is introducing refundable ticket and re-booking options on its tickets, so if your situation changes and you cannot complete the journey, you will not lose your money.
