France Travel Guide

How to Arrive

There are many different ways of getting to France. You can travel by air, by bus, or by train, they all have a lot of availability and the prices are also reasonable. You can book package tours yourself, but other companies have very good deals and special offers.

Now there is an easier and more exciting way to travel to France from Great Britain, with the Eurotunnel. It was inaugurated in 1994 and now you can get to France in approximately 35 minutes from Folkestone to Calais/Coquelles. You can take a car or you can take the classic train. The service is open 24 hours a day and 365 days a year.

Travelling by plane is a good option too. If you are in any of the UK's regional airports it'll be cheap and easy to get to Paris, and not only the capital but all the French cities too. Competition always benefits the consumer and this is not the exception, flight operators are competing all the time to get more passengers and prices are getting lower and lower, specially when you are travelling to Nice or Paris.

There are several options available if you want to travel by train. Ports all along the south coast of England (Portsmouth, Southampton, Plymouth, Poole) will take you to Roscoff, Le Havre, Cherbourg, Caen and Dieppe in northern France. If you're travelling from London to Paris you can get there in approximately 2.5 hours.Eurostar provides a passenger service which you can either join in London at Waterloo or at Ashford in Kent. Ferries are very comfortable, they are equipped with restaurants, entertainment for adults and children, and places to relax.

Travelling by sea is relaxing option; you can enjoy the journey especially if you travel in summer, when the weather is perfect.

It is necessary to have a valid passport if you are planning to visit France. Check it is valid for the duration of your visit.
