A round of apaws for our upgraded pet exercise areas

June 12, 2014

After so much positive feedback about the pet facilities at our Victor Hugo terminal in Folkestone, we could not leave Calais out! You will be delighted to hear that we've worked hard to make sure that the pet exercise areas in Calais are just as fabulous!

The new enlarged exercise area is conveniently located next to our Pet Reception where your four legged companion can stretch their paws either before or after our friendly team scan their microchip and check their pet passport.

I spoke to owner, Helen whilst her gorgeous boy Woody raced around the new exercise area. 'We cross with Eurotunnel Le Shuttle at least 3 times a year and would not dream of crossing any other way. I've got two 'newfies' and they both spread out in the back of the van and snore their way across the Channel. And the best thing is my husband and I get to stay with our precious boys all the time, after all it's a family holiday. It's lovely to see the investment and care taken into making all the pet facilities convenient and friendly, it just makes travelling so much easier'.

We have also extended the dedicated area at our Flexiplus lounge and we have a nice new area in the middle of the boarding lanes in case they should get caught short!  This is their last chance on French soil – next stop is the dedicated area behind the Esso garage back in the UK.

Don't forget all our pet exercise areas on both terminals provide complimentary poop bags – all we ask is you remember to pick it up!

As the market leader for pet travel across the Channel, we hope these small touches make travelling as convenient and relaxing for you and your pet as possible.
