Travel with Eurotunnel Le Shuttle this May Bank Holiday

May 21, 2014

The Spring Bank Holiday is fast approaching at the end of May, bringing with it half term holidays and warmer weather, which means there has never been a better time to head to France, or further afield, on a road trip. If you’re planning to get the whole family involved, or head away with friends, then get your trip off to the best start with Eurotunnel Le Shuttle.

There are no luggage restrictions, which means you can take everything you need with you, without having to worry about excess baggage fees. In fact, there are no hidden charges, and no booking fees. What you see is what you get with Eurotunnel Le Shuttle, with prices starting from just £23!

Eurotunnel Le Shuttle runs up to four times an hour, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, making it incredibly convenient, too! With such a flexible service on offer, you have the freedom to design your trip the way you want, travelling at a time and date that suits you.

When you reach our Calais terminal, all that’s left to do is simply drive your car off Le Shuttle and straight on to the motorway. Our Calais terminus is ideally located for quick and easy access to the whole of France, as well as European destinations beyond.

In as little as three hours, you can drive to the heart of Paris, and begin exploring the glamorous City of Lights! There is so much to do in the capital city; you’re guaranteed to find something to keep everyone entertained over the bank holiday. From world-class museums and galleries, to thrilling shows and cabarets, or perhaps fine dining and luxury shopping is more up your street – Paris has it all!

If you’d rather explore France’s vast countryside there is plenty on offer, catering to all tastes. Drive down to the alps in less than eight hours, where you can enjoy some peace and quiet on a mountain hike, or try your hand at something a little more fast-paced, such as mountain biking or mountain boarding.

For something more down to earth, why not explore the beautiful and historic Loire Valley. With enchanting chateaux, a variety of wine regions and peaceful, winding cycle routes, it is the perfect place to relax during half term and is as close as a four-hour drive.

Alternatively, head to the beach and enjoy some fun in the sun with the kids! France has roughly 2,000 miles of beautiful coastline, leaving you spoilt for choice. For a quick break, the northern Côte d'Opale has plenty of stunning beaches and sandy dunes to discover. If you’re planning a longer holiday, take the 11-hour drive south to the Côte d'Azur and revel in the glitz and glamour of the luxury resorts.

I'm French, so I'm a big fan of French culture, tradition and cooking, so always look forward to visiting France. My family and I tend to visit my family in northern France twice a month, so we're always there. I'm looking forward to sharing some of my family's holiday stories as we travel throughout France and the rest of Europe.
