Happy FLT since 2011
Just waiting to board Eurotunnel. Been delayed by 30 minutes. Only one train per hour at the moment. Had to fill out the on-line questionnaire but no mention of quarantine. We did explain we had come directly from Aachen with out leaving the van.
All good except South Yorkshire's in tier 3 lockdown. Welcome home :Eeek: :drinks:

Hi all I am leaving Spain soon and am thinking of calling in Germany for a couple of weeks rather than isolate in Wales. Can you advise on any problems I might have re Covid I am prepared to take a test if that helps. Probably just use Stelplatz also is Germany getting close to going on the naughty list. Thanks

Now at Aachen overnight, drive to the tinnel tomorrow for a 19:00 train.

Had a great 8 weeks in Germany with Mags and Jasper. Like the country, the roads, their facilities for wohnmobiles šŸ˜‰ and the cheap diesel (compared to UK) - 99.9PPL today.

Hmm plans gone a bit astray. Booked the 7pm train thinking if we get there early possibly get moved to an earlier train. Just checked on line and all earlier trains now fully booked.

Sitting about an hour from Calais with 3 hours to while away.

Looks like the hordes are heading home!

Having said that in 8 weeks we have seen 4 UK number plates and one of those was in Aachen last night.

Up-Date! (From #1260)

Today I had Ā£70.00 deposited into my bank account from Dartford Services. My complaint to Dartford Services fell on deaf ears and they insist you follow their procedures (make you jump through hoops) if you want to lodge an appeal.
I wrote to my M.P. and told him they had closed my account without my consent and kept the balance and because my account was closed no email was sent when the PCN was issued resulting in an increased fine upon my return to the UK because this was when I found out a P.C.N. had been issued.
He replied to me that he had been in contact with the Dartford Services C.E.O. citing my case and asking for an investigation. He received a response that this would be completed in 15 days and I expect he (The C.E.O) has looked at my account, payment history etc., etc., and accepted the fine should be returned.
I have thanked my M.P. and suggested to him that perhaps the practise of closing accounts without the account holders consent should be reviewed and it may be worth asking how much money they (Dartford Services) are sitting on from closed accounts ?? That's Ā£70.00 I thought I would never see again. Time to buy a couple of Euromillions tickets.

On the train, through French and UK checks - nothing! No forms requested, nothing about where we travelled from etc.

Cursory check of the gas and that was it.

Thats what we found 2 weeks ago, apart from the toilets on the train being closed nothing, not even any signs hinting you should quarantine, only even asked us about the gas as we drove off, but didn't check.

Arrived back in the UK 4th November just before the German tourism final lockdown date . We never planned to go to Germany this year and to be honest I had never considered a long holiday there BUT from kicking off in August I have been really pleasantly surprised and have loved every minute of our trip and would definitely return.
