    Charge for Free!

    Eurotunnel Le Shuttle is now the only place in Europe where you can find all of the main rapid chargers for electric vehicles in one place, and use them for free!

    We have chargers for universal electric and hybrid cars, and dedicated Tesla chargers at both terminals, so if you find your electric or hybrid car low on battery power, you can recharge before you head through the tunnel.

    Great news - our Flexiplus facilities on the French Terminal now include dedicated Tesla chargers for your convenience.

  • Where can I find them?
    Our charging stations are situated near the main entrances of the Charles Dickens and Victor Hugo Passenger Terminal Buildings. Just look out for the blue 'Charge' flags in the main car parks.

    What charge cards are required?
    At the France terminal:
    Our chargers in France are programmed to work without cards - just turn up and charge.
    At the UK terminal:

    Our UK chargers require RFID cards from either the Energize Network or Charge Your Car Ltd (CYC).

    If you do not have the appropriate card for our chargers, you can borrow one from our Customer Service and Information desk. Your passport or ID card will be required and retained as a deposit while you charge your car.

    Low ground-clearance vehicles (sports cars):
    If your car is exceptionally wide or has low ground-clearance we recommend that you book your vehicle as a High car (car over 6ft/1.85m) to avoid difficulty boarding our shuttles.
    Can I use the chargers if I'm travelling Flexiplus?
    Yes. If you wish to use the car chargers before you head over to the Flexiplus lounge, please use the standard check-in lanes for easier access to the Passenger Terminal Buildings where the chargers are located.
