• Your Christmas getaway is closer than you think…

  • Christmas is just around the corner, but there’s still time for a last-minute getaway…
    Whether you’re looking for a relaxing break before the madness begins or want to set up a festive reunion with your friends on the continent, make your trip more magical with Eurotunnel Le Shuttle.
    And with no limits on what you can bring back across the border, you can fill your boots with cheese, wine, presents and everything in between.
    • Do the shuttles still go on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day?
      Yes, our shuttles travel every day of the year, including both French and British national holidays.
    • How can I get the best price for my Christmas break?
      Our prices sometimes go up as demand increases, but they never go down, so you can be certain that booking as early as you are able will always give you the best deal. We have availability to book nine to twelve months ahead of the date you wish to travel, and if you change your mind we won’t charge an amendment fee, only the difference between what you paid and the price the crossing you want to change to is currently selling at. If you can be flexible about when you travel it’s worth checking whether traveling a few hours, or even a day earlier or later than you had planned will save you money; there are plenty of interesting places to stay, and things to do near our terminals in France and the UK. .

    The best Christmas markets
    There’s a reason that there’s a song about Christmas being the most wonderful time of the year, and in Strasbourg it’s really not very hard to see why. We sent our friends Aimee and Craig from Kinging It on a festive adventure to the French town to discover why its Christmas market is one of the best loved in the country.
