Eurotunnel Le Shuttle

A popular alternative to the ferry is Le Shuttle. You can drive your car onto the train and travel to France in only 35 minutes. That is about an hour faster than the ferry.

Le Shuttle is the only way to get through the Eurotunnel by car. The other train company, Eurostar, only operates passenger trains. And unfortunately, you can not drive through the tunnel yourself.
