I intend to drive to the uk in august and i was wondering if people think it's better to use the ferry or the eurotunnel? Has anyone out there tried the eurotunnel and if so is it really necesary to book the time and date to go through? In the website it says you should do it, but to travel pushing for time is horrible, i prefer to let myself go and arrive when i arrive, you know. Also is it cheaper to travel by ferry? I have seen the cheapest fare in the eurotunnel would be 160 euros both ways if we go through late in the evening. Can anyone give me a tip please? thanks.
