Seems like there might be some competition hotting up on channel crossings. Haven't seen prices this cheap for years.

Not good if you get sea sick as its a 2 hour trip!

I never understood why it's so much cheaper for a day trip.

It's good to see some competition but I'll stick to the Euro Tunnel for now.

3 day trip is listed as £19 on that page - you have to click the button for the offer you want.

DFDS Seaways are nearly always the cheapest, have done this trip many times on a tobacco run to Adinkerke (personal use only!!). We usually pay around £9 each way for the ferry as we can pick and choose when we go. Mid-week is usually the cheapest time, crossing a little tedious as most of the comfy seats have gone unless you fly up the stairs!!! Service is pretty efficient though and have never encountered any major issues. Once you get off the ferry, Belgium is around 20 minutes away!!

What happens if someone bought 2 day trips week apart and used only one way on given day, i.e. Go to France and don't use return and use only return ticket on other day? Would that work?

nope they would charge your card the price of a full fare ie 2 x one way tickets minus the price of the 2 x day trips you booked its in the t&cs

Thought so. Almost £150 for week than. Better to use eurotunnel and pay with tesco vouchers.

I was looking for 3 day trip to visit my friends in Brussels. Was on their website as well, but when you do normal search it comes close to £100. I cancelled my plans, but this will bring them back to life. Thnx a million. This is it. Hello continent. Heat added

Hey Guys, a quick question to the experienced ones... Is it possible tu buy a ticket 'at the gates' and what'd be the price? Thinking about crossing around the Xmas time. As I am going to drive back ~1kmiles I am slightly worried that I may be late, and I am not really that keen to buy 'flexible' ticket for 199 (eurotunnel)...
thanks in advance!
