Out of interest, is there anything stopping me from buying two lots same day journeys on Eurotunnel to save money?

It seems I could get a same day return for £53, so buying one for the Monday and another for the Wednesday is cheaper than buying a Short Stay Saver ticket for around £150.

I read here some time ago that if You book same day return and won't travel back on the same day they might deduct full price ticket from your card.

Best to check in their T&C.

Fair enough - thanks for the heads up

I might be wrong but I'm sure I've heard that if you don't complete the outward journey on the Wednesday (which you wouldn't); your return journey is automatically invalidated.

I was thinking doing a same day return from Folkestone to Calais on the Monday, then a Calais to Folkestone same day return on the Wednesday. So basically the outward journey gets me where I need to go

Having read further on the T&Cs, it's a no go...

Failure to complete both the outward and return journeys in respect of a return booking will invalidate your booking and in the event that you complete only one journey in respect of a return booking, you will be liable to pay the difference between the price that you paid for your return booking and the single fare applicable at the time that your journey was made. Eurotunnel reserves the right to obtain from you payment in full for all sums so arising. All travel must be completed within 1 calendar year of the date of original purchase.

I work for e.t. and your ticket will be not be valid on the return journey as it done by number plate recognised system so you will be sent into the terminal to buy a new ticket as half term will be twice as much as normal single ticket you could end up paying over £100 for just one way ....

I got caught out by this a few years back. Bought a return on the channel tunnel for our camper van and 4 pax. For various reasons our plans changed and we went outbound by ferry to St Malo planning to return via the tunnel.
On arrival at Calais, we were told our ticket was void as the outbound sector was unused. After much protest we were forced to buy a very expensive 1 way ticket.
At that time the small print for this was incredibly well buried in the t&c's, but despite protests we never got any compensation.
Lesson learned.
