Eurotunnel- the fastest way to France

Eurotunnel, or 'Le Shuttle' is probably the easiest, and certainly the fastest way of reaching the continent, and with their round the clock operation they can get you to the slopes faster than a cross channel ferry. Eurotunnel don't use voucher codes as a promotional method, meaning BOOKING EARLY or on an off peak date to time of day is normally the best way to get the best prices. For maximium flexibility consider the FLEXIPLUS ticket which means you can get on the next available shuttle whether you are early or late for your booked journey.
