    Eurotunnel Le Shuttle Review

    Eurotunnel Le Shuttle Review
     
    5 Star Rating
    Tags: Folkestone
     

    We recently experienced the Eurotunnel Le Shuttle service from Folkstone to Calais and must say we were most pleased with the entire service. From the booking and checking-in process to the relaxing, smooth, air-conditioned, carriages, we can’t fault the service and thoroughly enjoyed the prompt and professional service across the Channel.

    When choosing to travel from England to France without taking to the skies, the go-to route for most has always been a ferry from Dover to Calais. However, while the ferry is an enjoyable experience in its own right, the Eurotunnel offers a much more efficient and convenient service in our opinion.

    The terminal is situated just off the motorway, so it’s easy to find. As we arrived, we proceeded straight through passport control and into the boarding area to wait for our shuttle. There were large screens keeping us up-to-date with the boarding times.

    “The Eurotunnel service was fast, faultless, and we would have no hesitation taking this option on future trips to France or Germany.”

    We must say that the process from booking to getting on the train was very smooth and fast. We were parked up on the train and taking off within minutes. While on the train you can either stay in your vehicle or get out and stretch your legs and use the toilet facilities. We were more than comfortable enough staying in our car.

    After just 35 minutes later the shuttle came to a stop, the vehicles in front of us started moving and we drove off through the terminal and onto French roads.

    The crossing service operates up to 50 times every day, so there is plenty of flexibility for those running on a tight schedule. If you’re scheduling a trip over to France and want to take your own vehicle, we certainly recommend it.

    The Eurotunnel service was fast, faultless, and we would have no hesitation taking this option on future trips over the usual ferry choice. Not only did we save about an hour in travel time, but the experience was also much more enjoyable - so it’s an easy choice.
