When traveling, private cars always get more energy for most Spaniards, and being able to move with complete freedom of movement and schedules for many is one of the main factors to consider. If you soon plan to travel to England and it is not one of your options to do it by plane, here are the main keys to cross the Channel Tunnel.
Gasoline prices, as you already know, are through the roof. And in recent months, it’s rarely been cheap for you to put gas in your car. If you are one of those who care about saving every drop you put in your car, here are a series of tips to help you find the nearest cheap gas station.
Additionally, there are some moves that will also help you save money when it comes to fuel. And if you push the lever all the way, the pressure from the fuel pump makes the fuel evaporate faster, so we get less fuel for the same price. What is the solution? Be patient when refueling to make the most of every drop of fuel.
The famous Eurotunnel was inaugurated in 1994, and is now the third longest in the world. This tunnel allows you to travel from Coquelles (France) to Folkestone (United Kingdom) in just half an hour. But this is not the most amazing thing, because traveling through this tunnel you cross the sea at a depth of up to 75 meters.
However, it’s not just any tunnel, because you can’t travel through it with a car running, but you do while traveling by train. There are two ways:
- The first of these is a normal train, the so-called Eurostar, which only carries passengers.
- Another way is the Shuttle train, where cars, motorcycles and even trucks can be transported.
As expected, prices vary depending on the train used, and Eurostar (passenger) offers a fare between 59 and 352 euros depending on where you take it (because it reaches Paris and even London ). Its duration, of course, also varies depending on the distance traveled.
On the other hand, the price of the Shuttle train (cars) starts at 60 euros per car per trip and can go up to 325 euros, depending on the time you stay in England. The best thing if you want to save money is to buy your tickets in advance, and if possible, on dates when demand is low.
