Yeah its excellent and very well organised.

Can you buy 2 tickets and use one to go out and one to come back, or will they charge you if you don't use the return?

They will almost certainly charge you, if you do not use the return section.

" 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."

Or just fill in the "call back" form on their website - eurotunnel.com/uk/…LS/

What can you realistically do in a day there?
Not a stupid statement, just never been round that area so just wondered what tips people had for things to do in a day?

A lot of people would do a booze or ciggy run in a day using that and not bother about seeing anything else but the warehouse or supermarket

Look under the car before returning, we don't want any extra citizens.

This ^^^^^^^^^^

If only I lived nearer to Kent.:(

There is a lot at the shopping centre right next to the terminal. Carefour (superb cheeses and fish) a huge C&A shop and a few restaurants. About a mile toward town there is a Leroy Merlin (like B&Q) and a few more DIY shops, I also remember a good cycling shop and Mothercare type place. Have a "drive" around on Streetview,
Euro is low at the moment thanks to our Greek friends so like for like products could well be a bit cheaper but main benefit is finding stuff that is just not available here, for instance contemporary outdoor lighting that isn't the UK tradition of looking like Victorian lanterns ! Generally in the DIY / Building materials area the stuff is much better quality than you would find at the Merchants here. I've got a link to a page about shopping there... here it is :day-tripper.net/

Damn, I need to go between 20-22 feb heat added tho nice find

Booked for 18 feb day trip 20 quid brilliant price thanks op

Hope the queue on the M20 goes down before then

What are the Times of travel does anyone know?

Please be certain that the delays are all sorted before booking. My husband was in a traffic jam for 14 HOURS last week after the fire. This is probably why this promotion is going on.

Loads to do round there. I get up very early (3am) and take the family for a full day out. Kids sleep in the car for the first few hours. You can do some of the WW1 battlefields and Vimy Ridge in particular is fascinating. On the way back grab dinner around Calais, do the shopping, the meat and cheeses are excellent. Went before Xmas and did most of the food shopping, chocolates , biscuits etc so much nicer. We have also gone to Brugge in Belgium and Ghent, both beautiful cities and perfectly possible in a day. Good to have 2 drivers, if you can. We live a 2 hour drive from the Tunnel.

Good shout. I was about to say Brugge, easy to reach in less than 90 mins from Calais. Beer bottle museum/shop and some chips with mayo. Sorted.

+1 for the Battlefield tour

We went to La Coupole lacoupole-france.co.uk/his…tml a few years ago and was very impressed. It has the advantage that it's underground so not weather dependant. Went with 2 kids aged 10 - 12 and they both still talk about it.

Thanks for sharing that number, it took around 15 minutes to speak to someone about the ticket so it saved me some money.

Booked to go on the 19th, thanks op!

I'm sure that traffic jam will be sorted by 17th Feb.

this might be a daft question - do you need a passport to use the euro tunnel?

If I only wanted to walk around France on a day visit

Go to your car and enjoy for yourself the luxury of clinging underneath for paradise where streets are paved with gold.

You definitely need a passport and probably a visa if you are not EU national

More like 45 mins after you have queued to get on the train...and you have to arrive at least 30 mins before the departure time...and you probably want to make that another 30 mins earlier to avoid the risk of traffic delays...so about 2 hrs all in. I remember when they were running the hydrofoil to Boulogne it actually took and hour from turning up at the dock to driving off the other end. Eurotunnel act as if they are a monopoly. YMMV

My mum, nephew and I arranged the visit through Flanders Battlefield Tour (www.ypres-fbt.com). There are other tour companies - we went with them as they are #1 on Trip Advisor. The tour guide Jaques was excellent.
And no, I don't work for them.

Book by phone.............................. What is this..... the 90s?

Would be a bargain if it was to Paris

Great offer, just a week to late for me.

Don't you need a boot full of saftey gear to drive in france (bulbs, breatherliser etc)?
