    I used it for a year in 2006/7when I knew I was going to use 10 one way trips. The price is still the same. £48 each way compared to the off peak fares of about £61 then and £72 now.

    I always prefer to travel off peak anyway so the time restrictions weren't a problem.

    You pay an additional £9 supplement for each trip for a motorhome. excellent value and convenience IMO. We have not used it last year and this due to very cheap ferry offers and due to recession only visiting Europe 3 times a year......But I really miss it:Sad:

    I believe so, you just have to travel out of peak hours, which we do anyway.

    But will we do 5 trips ?

    What I have been doing up to now, I find the best deal for us on their web site, then book it through the C and CC which gets me around a 10 - 15 % discount.:thumb:

    I have just Emailed them to enquire about the supplements for my motorhome & the dog :Smile:. We had only planned on 2 trips this year, but this could tempt us to more :Smile:

    We used this service last year for 5 trips and will book again for this year for what it costs for the covenience even if you only made 4 trips I feel its good value for money Its nice to just book outward journey and not have to bother with the return until you are ready to come home .

    I looked at this for us as well, but quite like the break and the leg stretch that you get on the ferry.
    Also the supplement for motorhomes with seafrance is only £2.50 each way and £19 each way if you buy 10 trips.:thumb:

    Gutted that I missed their recent offer of £19 each way on a single ticket. Missed it by 40 minuts by the time we figured out dates:cry::cry:

    The Tunnel gets my vote as it is less stressful for the dog :Smile:

    Had a reply from Eurotunnel about the supplements.

    "The fee for the pet control is £30.00 per dog and if you are travelling with a motorhome there will be £9.00 supplement on each leg of the journey."

    So it would appear that the size of the motorhome doesn't make a difference to the supplement :Smile:

    To get it a £19 you need to by 10 return trips. It is £30 for 5 return trips though opposed to £39 with the eurotunnel. Adding the motorhome supp:
    £32.50 seafrance (+ additional supp if more than 8m)
    £48.00 eurotunnel

    We used it last year and are going to again this year for the convienience its worth every penny just do not like ferries @ £390 + £90 for motorhome its good value even if we did not use the 5 trips in 12 months its worth it .

    Hi K - I've still got the notes from our telcons last year - for reasons to boring to post here I've not yet used the Eurotunnel frequent traveler thing but all being well I will be doing it in mid June. (And then August and then October :RollEyes:)

    Like you say it's a great service and I too will not know my return date so can just book the outward and then do the return when ready, you told me that it can be left to just 24 hours before return which is great for me.
