Getting to France
One of the main benefits of taking a holiday in France is that it is so easy to get to. In just a few hours you can be exploring the delights of France or take your car on self drive holiday. There are several main transport methods you can use to get to France:
You can take the car via the shortest crossing route from Kent to north east France on a cross channel ferry or Eurotunnel. This is the quickest way to reach France and is ideal for Paris and Disneyland, but you may have a longer drive to the rest of the country.
Alternatively, you can drive using the longer ferry crossing route from the UK south coast ports to Normandy and Brittany in north west France. Crossings are longer but you’ll spend less time driving when you get there; a good option for holidays in the south west of France.
Fly to France using one of the many different routes available from airports across the UK to airports in every region of France. Ideal for city breaks or a longer holiday when combined with car hire.
Finally, take the train to France using the fast Eurostar service from London to Paris, where you can then connect with France’s excellent high speed TGV national rail network.
