Channel Tunnel by Motorbike

Using the channel tunnel to get to France by motorbike is just as easy as it is for cars. The Channel Tunnel trains are simple to board, and once your motorbike is parked on the train, all you need do is relax and enjoy the 35 minute trip under the Channel. For safety, motorbikes usually board towards the front or centre of the trains, rather than at the rear. Once parked up on the train, you stay with your motorcycle and belongings. In this respect, travelling by Eurotunnel makes life a bit easier for motorcyclists. It is sometimes a worry leaving your bike below deck on the cross Channel ferries, plus it can be a pain to have to unload valuables to take to the upper decks with you during transit. Of course it is possible to walk around the Channel tunnel trains if you want to stretch your legs a bit, plus there are toilets onboard available for use by all passengers.

Which is best for motorbikes: Tunnel or Ferry?

Everyone will have their own opinions, but the generally answer is the same as it would be for cars; the tunnel is faster, but the ferries are cheaper. But either way, prices for motorbikes are great value!

Channel Tunnel Trains with a Motorcycle

The Channel Tunnel trains are fast and frequent. They take just 35 minutes to cross the Channel and both the Folkestone and Calais terminals are right on the main motorways and road networks. Your journey will be quicker if you take the Channel Tunnel.

Channel Ferries with a Motorcycle

A cross Channel ferry journey from Dover to Calais typically takes between 1 hour 15 minutes to 1 hour 30 minutes. But the ferry prices are usually cheaper than Channel Tunnel prices. As mentioned above, some motorcyclists prefer the Channel Tunnel trains because they can remain with their bike throughout the journey, compared to a ferry crossing.
