    No, just book as motorhome or camping car. MH's go in with trucks and bus and cars with ski boxes etc.

    NO Just enter as it states on the web, you go as normal. don't worry about height. Also on the booking form you will be listed as a "camping car"

    Book now if you can as prices seem to go up the closer to the date of travel.

    i usually book about three weeks before, I don't find the price alters that much, book through C&CC or CC and you get 10% off

    I use Tesco vouchers so perhaps that makes a difference.

    Or so the C & CC claim.. See my thread 'should I rejoin the C & CC'
    And I now know it is not just me !!!

    But to be fair, C & CC insurance chap has been on the fone to me and I have been assured someone from the European travel section will be getting in touch to try and sort out the issue too

    I booked last week. Was exactly 10% cheaper than the price on the eurotunnel website.

    slight warning (posted before) - if you change your booking with CCC it has to be direct with CCC and not eurotunnel, during working hours and incurs a £ 15 amendment fee - each time
    Fine if your certain of dates and timings, but of a mistake ( my end) if you are not

    With frequent traveller you can change as many times as you wish subject to availability. I have onetime changed returns 5 times in the past, still turned up late and been put on the next train....

    So flexible..
