Is your vehicle higher than 1.85m?

Use our spacious single deck carriages

We allocate space in the single deck carriage for vehicles higher than 1.85 metres, including tall cars, vehicles carrying items on their roof, coaches, caravans and some vans. The carriages are twice as high as the double deck carriages so there is ample room.

Vehicle type prices will vary according to the vehicle type.

Important Information

  • We regret that LPG (or equivalent flammable gas) vehicles cannot be transported by Eurotunnel Le Shuttle even if it is being used as a secondary fuel source. However other dual powered vehicles can be accepted e.g. petrol/electric. Check the acceptability of your vehicle.

  • Transport of gas containers to power domestic services for caravans, campervans, vehicles fitted out as a campervan are restricted. Check gas transport conditions.

  • 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.
