Never been on the Eurotunnel Le Shuttle?
Here's how it works...

Getting to the terminal is quick and simple, with zero stress. Once you've arrived, go straight to our check-in booths where you'll be asked to hand over your booking reference, and the credit or debit card you used to purchase your tickets to one of our friendly team members. After they've checked your reference and payment card, you'll be handed a departure hanger that you'll need to display inside your car.

Self Check-in

After checking-in you'll have the chance to explore our passenger terminal. Enjoy a spot of lunch at Burger King or Leon, buy the latest bestsellers from WHSmith and take a seat to sip some coffee as you relax before boarding your carriage.

After your time in the passenger terminal you'll be asked to make your way to passport control, where a member of our staff will double check your travel papers and vehicle documents. Keep your eyes on the customer information screens, and once your carriage is ready, you'll be asked to board up to 25-minutes prior to departure. To get to your train, just follow the green arrows that direct you to your allocated slip lane.

Top tips for the road to Holland

With Holland only being a three hour and 14 minute drive from our Calais terminal, it's a lot easier to get to than you may have previously thought.

If you're heading to Amsterdam, then you're in for a treat. An enchanting city full of history, culture and wonderful things to do; you won't have the chance to be bored. Fans of art will love Amsterdam's Van Gogh Museum, which offers a collection of some of his best work. This fantastic artist achieved little recognition during his lifetime, which is a great shame considering he was the genius behind famous masterpieces such as 'Sunflowers' and 'Bedroom in Arles'. 

Top tips for the road to Holland

For fun and adventure go to Slagharen, a huge theme park in the Netherlands. There, you'll see beautiful views of the land from the heights of the Ferris Wheels, and get to enjoy splashing in the pool and even get the chance to take on white water adventures. And after a tiring day, you can spend the night in one of the park's tepees.
