We are coming around to the fact that we have to book our crossing back to UK from France.

We like the idea of the Eurotunnel having travelled on it before in the van and like its speed and convenience, however the price we got quoted just from their website is £189 for seemingly any time i selected, thats for a MH, 2 adults and 1 dog.

Is there a cheap time / day to travel across the chunnel ?

Cheapest way I have seen which was on TV recently is run out, and jump on the back of a lorry. I think, but not sure, that they then actually give you money when you get to the otherside.

Travel before 11.00 am from france will qualify you for the cheaper rate on the chunnel . If you go with Norfolk line, ask for the price of return I got stung for an extra 60 euro above the return price because I asked for a single fare first, refused to sell me the cheaper return fare.

P&O Litenite sailings are good value, mine is £99 return, they are denoted on the site in the sailings calender with an 'L', from UK to France I think they start about 2230 until 0700 next day. Can't remember the start to finish times the other way but ours is 1100 French time.

Just out of curiousity i've just got a single crossing fare for a 1030 crossing on norfolkline in June and the fare is £99

Although their rtn crossing pricing policy is great (£88) how can they have the nerve to charge £10 more for a single?

Still better than the chunnel tho :)

Sorry Dave, the thread has diverted from under the water to over it!

I just contact the Dover Eurochange when I know I am ready to cross and have yet to beat their prices. They still work out far cheaper just turning up than booking way in advance and I can take my time getting to Dover or Calais.

Worth giving them a try and will take credit card on phone and give booking code for picking tickets up at check in Kiosks. _ Brilliant and I promise they are cheap.

You are spot on. Just booked 2 trips with Norfolk Line 1 Sep to 1 Oct and 1Nov to 1Dec for £38 each return. This is a cracking deal and shows what a switched on firm they are; £38 is better than £0 and carrying fresh air rather than a MH. Whilst the sailings are early morning/late night it is not too much of a problem in a mobile tin tent and you can still get 2 hours rest on the ferry. Mention MHF when you book as they have noticed a substantial increase in MH users which must be in part due to the various threads on Norfolk Line on this site. ( Dont believe that we would get any further discounts but it would certainly help to keep prices down!)

Great advantage with Norfolk Line is no charge for amendments unlike the Dover/Calais Mafia

Kind regards

Norfolk line booked a few days ago, £38.00 for outward travel at 01.45 on 14/09/05 and return 02.00 27/09/05.

I thought you cannot beat that, never travelled with Norfolk line so should be interested, probably get a set of oars on embarkation..... :)
