Take advantage of our special service for cyclists

Fares only £50 per bicycle, each way

Take a cycling holiday to the Continent to see the stunning views at a slower pace. LeShuttle, formerly known as Eurotunnel Le Shuttle, is the perfect way to go.

How can I take my bike to France?

Taking your bike to France on LeShuttle is easy. 

Our cycle service operates between the Holiday Inn Express, Folkestone and the CIFFCO building opposite Cité Europe in Calais, carrying cycles and cyclists on a specially adapted and spacious minibus. You will be collected and taken to the terminal and onto the shuttle for a 35 minute journey to Calais. 


The fare is £50 for adults and children with cycles. Children accompanying their parents on a child seat travel free of charge. Tandems are charged by the number of seats, occupied or not. Trailer prices are dependent on the size.

Once we have received your enquiry a member of our Customer Support Team will be in touch.

A minimum of 10 working days advance booking is required. Tickets are non-refundable. Amendments can be made up to 3 working days before departure, subject to availability.

Unfortunately, we are unable to take bookings over the telephone or on the day of travel.
