Some people like to travel in their own vehicle (Campers are esspecially popular) but what is the best way to get to Paris by road? Hmm good question. Now, what I would do everytime is use the AA route map service (link below) online a couple of days before I start out, just to give me some sort of idea of the journey ahead. once on the road I would use the WAZE App on my phone and follow that (well certainly after I come out of the channel tunnel). There are of course other Apps available to use but that is my personal preference. I like to use other resources to mark out a route as I’m not entirely fond of using Satnav’s, they like to take people the long way around and after driving miles that’s the last thing you need.
Don’t like flying or ships? Then if you’re travelling in your car, campervan or whatever Eurotunnel Le Shuttle may be just right for you, it’s on the train in Kent then off the train in France 35 minutes later, what could be simpler? Eurotunnel have been operating for the last 26 years and certainly know their business. We went on a tour of their premises in Kent and had a great insight as to what hapens and believe me we were extremely impressed with what we witnessed. As for the current situation yes that does play a major part in what happens on board now. At one time you could get out of your vehicle and have a walk along, Now, who knows? But if you want to get to France quickly there is none better than Eurotunnel. Give them a try next time you take the car.
Car Hire can be an excellent choice to use in and around Paris, I will say this though, we found that Paris can be like a traffic free for all with cars and lorries making you feel like they’re aiming for you. So with that I would say make sure you’re a skilled driver, believe me it matters
I am currently looking for information regarding traffic updates for the French Autoroutes so please watch this space. Whether it’s Web based, radio stations, mobile Apps whatever I will add them here as I find them. To have upto date travel information is priceless and something much needed
