Driving to the French Alps

A self-drive ski holiday to the French Alps can be an excellent option, especially for families. It allows so much more flexibility and the option to pack as much as your car allows! It can also give you more freedom once in your chosen ski resort, allowing you to easily travel between several resorts or to and from attractions.

Crossing the Channel with Eurotunnel

Did you know that Eurotunnel is now 20 years old and incredibly since 1994, it has transported over 20 million cars?! They must be doing something right!

The Eurotunnel is the fastest way of crossing the channel, taking only 35 minutes and there are up to 4 crossings an hour.

Eurotunnel FlexiPlus

When you book your ski holiday and Eurotunnel with Peak Retreats, you automatically get a free FlexiPlus upgrade*! So you receive a premium service for the same price as a standard ticket.

* Excludes New Year and February Half Term weeks


What are the benefits of FlexiPlus?

  1. Flexibility to travel on next available departure
  2. Dedicated check-in lane
  3. Priority boarding

When we recently spoke to Eurotunnel, they said they are working hard to rebrand all FlexiPlus signage, making it even easier to navigate your way to the FlexiPlus areas. When you’re next taking advantage of your free FlexiPlus upgrade, look out for the purple signage.
