Eurotunnel deals with your car
If you are looking for the best Chunnel deals when taking your car to France, the are 2 main rules to finding the cheapest fares:
- Avoid travelling at peak times. The Chunnel fares are cheaper on the trains at quieter times, such as early morning, or late at night. This can be the best time to travel anyway, as the roads in England and France will be quieter and help make your journey quicker. If you must travel at peak times, try to make it for one journey only, for example if your outward journey has to be around lunch time, then perhaps aim to book an off-peak train for your return journey.
