If you are looking for the cheapest Channel Tunnel tickets, the are 2 simple rules to remember:

Avoid the peak time trains (this can work in your favour anyway, as the roads will be quieter and your journey quicker). Even if you have to travel at peak times for one journey, eg: your outward journey, you can still book an off-peak train for your return journey.

ALWAYS book in advance. If you leave it until the last minute, or even just turn up, you will be charged a much higher price. Click here to book in advance...
