Driving from the UK to the Alps: 5 benefits of Eurotunnel FlexiPlus

image Wednesday, 27, December, 2017

Our ski holidays come with a Eurotunnel crossing for a standard car included, and we give you a free upgrade to the premium FlexiPlus service, expect as some school holiday weeks. It's fast, practical and easy, find out why below.


Why use Eurotunnel?

Eurotunnel Le Shuttle has been running since 1994. Every year, the Group carries almost 22 million passengers, 1.7 million trucks, 2.7 million cars, and 26% of trade in goods between the United Kingdom and continental Europe!

The journey takes just 35 minutes making it the fastest way of crossing the channel. There's regular departures of up four an hour and motorway to motorway access (driving off in France you are on your way immediately). One ticket covers one car and up to nine passengers and there's no baggage restrictions or fuel supplements!

Eurotunnel FlexiPlus lounges on both sides of the tunnel are accessible to all vehicles, including those with higher 4x4s and those with ski racks!

What is Eurotunnel FlexiPlus?

Eurotunnel FlexiPlus tickets provide priority boarding, flexible travel times and use of the exclusive FlexiPlus lounges. FlexiPlus lounges are brilliant. They offer a range of complimentary refreshments (stock up ahead of your drive in France) and free WiFi. Our ski holidays include a return Eurotunnel crossing for a standard car and we give you a free upgrade to the premium FlexiPlus service, except at some school holiday weeks.

Eurotunnel and Eurotunnel FlexiPlus make driving to the Alps a great option, giving you flexibility:

Flexibility with plans – create your own timetable, don’t rush to meet airline schedules, enjoy the journey!
Flexibility with packing – you can pack as much as your car allows (take all the ski gear you need)!
Flexibility once you’re there – with your car you can nip to the supermarket, visit other resorts...  

Don't just take our word for it. Here's what our clients say about FlexiPlus

"We had arranged for the FlexiPlus ticket on the Eurotunnel crossing which is definitely worth it. On arrival to Folkestone, we had a quick stop in the FlexiPlus lounge, packed up with sandwiches, crisps, drinks and we were on the next crossing. It was really so easy"  Mr S

“Complimentary FlexiPlus is a major differentiator vs. booking independently”  Mr M

“FlexiPlus Eurotunnel ticket was very useful”  Mr B

“We are really glad we used Peak Retreats, they were so helpful, it was so nice to have information sent through the post rather than having everything emailed! The flexi plus upgrade was amazing!”  Ms R

“The flexiplus upgrade is a big draw, it worked seamlessly on the outbound although on the inbound there was a very long queue for UK Border Control since the flexiplus queue merged with regular traffic and there was some building work at the border posts - even on a quietish Monday evening.”  Mr L

“The flexiplus upgrade was amazing - outbound we chose to sail straight onto a train due to our tight schedule. On the return we sailed past much of the queues at Coquelles and picked up a free packed tea.”  Mr L

"Flexi booking on the tunnel is worth its weight in gold" Mrs S
