JulianR Posted 9 May , 2019 Share Posted 9 May , 2019 I always use the ferry, so I do not have to drive 20 miles to get on the train and am home 15 minutes after landing in Dover. The M20 roadworks are for the allegedly Smart Motorway and a new interchange at Ashford. I have noticed that if the Tunnel fails all cars are put on the ferry anyway. There are very occasional delays on the ferry, normally occasioned by high winds or engine faults, I did a return trip to Calais last weekend on the ferry for £82. Even if you book the non-flexible cheapest ticket and arrive sufficiently early at the port for the previous ferry you are put on the earlier ferry. Getting through the French Customs is normally speedy, it is the British Immigration that is always slow, or do I have the magic ability to pull up behind the car that has suspicious characters in it?
