Will The Channel Tunnel Be Open After Brexit?

Yes - the Channel Tunnel will definitely be open after Brexit, and Eurotunnel will be operating as normal whatever form Brexit takes.

We’re in the very lucky position of having the protection of The Treaty of Canterbury which was signed by France and the UK when the Channel Tunnel was conceived – this sets out that both countries will facilitate as frictionless travel as possible through the Tunnel up until 2086.

News coverage has suggested that the European Commission needs to provide authorisation for the Tunnel to continue to operate as it does now for 90 days after Brexit in the case of a “no deal”.

The 90 days means that these agreements will be physically signed after the 31 January 2020, without the service being affected in any way.

We are Brexit-ready and pleased to let customers know they can book with confidence.
