- Chunnel confusion…
My friend got very confused on the Chunnel a few years back. We drove on and parked, then she got out and went off to find the carriages where the passengers sit for the journey. She returned very red faced.
You do that when travelling freight and trust me it’s not a nice carriage to travel in. Truckers don’t have the same access to showers as the rest of us and a few of them are positively hydrophobic.Posted 4 years agonickstikitsMember
We use the tunnel regularly in our VW Transporter which is the same size, just book as car with roofbox/bikes, put your reg. in and you don’t even have to speak to anyone to check in. They don’t like you changing to high space on arrival if you haven’t booked it, particularly at busy times.Posted 4 years agonealgloverMember
As above. I’ve always booked ours (VW T4 Multivan) on as a high car and never had any problems.
It’s taxation class is “Diesel Car” on the V5 if anyone wanted to argue. But they never have.
And it been multiple times on the Tunnel, Dover Calais, Dover Dunkirk, Hull Rotterdam and Hull Zeebrugge so far.Posted 4 years ago
Okay so consensus is book on as a ‘high’ car. We will be removing the back row of seats so it will be a 6 seater.
Not so concerned with cost, more that there are very few slots left for vans but plenty of choice for car based vans on the dates we want to travel.
They really need to sort there guidelines so it is easier to understand. I can’t be the only one!Posted 4 years ago
