    they seem to do deals for cars all the time, take a caravan for free etc, but take a toad behind your motorhome and you pay for two cars.

    Yep.. Very rare are Eurotunnel deals..
    Only thing I ever hear is the "Tesco brigade" who use their vouchers...:BigGrin:

    If there's no rush, use the ferry and have a chill out...

    Which is why we use DFDS.. just checked ( always worth a check ) and the chunnel is actually TWICE the price of DFDS..

    Might be handy and quick but hell, that is just not worth it !

    I stand corrected, not read small print but seems logical that they have a clause to prevent missuse.:Doh:

    Have used Tesco vouchers in the past, but didn't have any for last month's trip - so rang the Camping and Caravanning Club and they quoted a price just over 10% less than I could book the tunnel direct for. (obviously, you need to be a member - I think). :thumb:

    Believe the Caravan Club might do similar, but I'm not a member.

    Research the best price crossings on the Eurotunnel website first, and then ring C&CC or CC to make the booking.

    This is true about the small print.

    There is something you most certainly used to be able to do about that .......

    does not always work

    You have flexibility with the euro tunnel direct deals.. not so with CC&C they want to charge for any changes .. Having booked with both, I have not found any difference even with the club 10% discount.

    Just got a slightly better price going through C &CC via P and O ( usually more expensive than DFDS by quite a bit .. even the grub is dearer on the ferry !! ).. Got it down to £56.00 one way now... but will not book anything yet.. Hopefully the code that someone gets from the NEC will mean DFDS is once again the best and cheapest option :)

    We like the 2300hr crossing from Newhaven Dieppe. 20% discount for seniors if you telephone. Gets you into Dieppe 0400 so easy to be through Orleons by 0930. About £85 single for my van but saves 2hr 30 min drive from Calais to Rouen and Newhaven is a lot easier to get to from the midlands than Dover. Usually get three hours sleep on board. Busby.
