Brexit information and updates

Our shuttles will be running as usual, whatever form Brexit takes.

As the UK has left the EU there will be a transition period until at least 31st December 2020. This means there’s absolutely no change to travel in Europe throughout 2020. 

Book now and travel with Eurotunnel Le Shuttle. The simplest, fastest, most environmentally-friendly way to cross the Channel by car.

Travelling with Eurotunnel Le Shuttle 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.

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

  • Eurotunnel cannot control traffic flow outside of its terminals, however, we will continue to work with local authorities to ensure our customers are kept up to date. In the unfortunate event of a build-up of traffic on the motorway which results in customers arriving late, we will as always endeavour to accommodate them on the next available shuttle*.

    Our service operates 7 days a week, 24hrs a day.

    * a payment of difference in fare may apply.

  • Our pricing is based on supply and demand, so we always recommend that you book early to benefit from the best fares. Should you need to make changes to your travel plans you can amend your booking - without being charged an admin fee - up to 24 hours before you travel with us (subject to availability*).

    Over the past 2 years the Eurotunnel team have been working to ensure our service is prepared for Brexit. We would advise that you read the Government recommendations below to ensure you have all the necessary documentation.

    * a payment of difference in fare may apply.

  • We are doing everything we can to minimise the impact Brexit will have on our customers.
