Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Eurotunnel covid ticketing

 Poster: A snowHead

An FYI for anyone in the same boat...

I booked a Standard ticket June 2019 to travel December 2020 and then amended the booking to March 2021.

A standard ticket has a one year expiry but I called today saying for obvious reasons I wouldn't be able to travel in March and would be higher unlikely to be able to use if by June, again for obvious Covid reasons.

They are going to cancel and send me a voucher for the full amount to be used in the future.

@Layne, I called them a couple of weeks ago, and was told to call them again nearer to my new departure date which is now 24th June, 1 year after I made the booking. It's a Tesco voucher booking so I'm not too hopeful, but who knows?

@Hells Bells, I've re-arranged our half term trip on a Tesco voucher, they initially told me I had to use the ticket by July 2021 (a year after I'd booked the crossing), but I called back a couple of weeks later and they offered me a voucher instead which was valid for one year from the date of the booked crossing, so as long as my new booking was made before February 2022 it would be valid for the original amount.

We got a voucher back in April 2020. Valid for a year. Called last week and tey extended it for a year. Jolly decent of them for a non refundable ticket I think.

Interesting... I had a ticket booked for August 20, moved to Dec 20, moved to Feb 21. Valid for 12 Months from original booking date of June 20 and they refused me a voucher. Wouldn't even extend it to this summer.

Ended up having to claim the cost back on travel insurance.

@Hells_Bells - Correct. They would have moved it to June but I couldn't do anything with it in that time frame. Limited by school holidays.

@Layne, thanks for this. Will try it for the ticket booked in Jan 20 for SfAb, then shifted to this HT and then again to this Easter but that's not going to happen and was told it would be void from July 21 - like @pdsguy, limited by school holidays so not able to use in those time frames. I will try them.

Contacted them this morning and they've now offered me a voucher instead and will refund the pet supplements to my bank card.
@stefoy4me, I've only ever needed to use the loos twice in many journeys. The ones in the double deck carriages are better than the single deck ones, but only just. I usually just cross my legs and use the ones at the petrol station after we get off the train.

5 mins on online chat with them initially saying no but then changing their mind when I said I couldn't use the original ticket in the time frame and within half an hour a voucher landed in my email that will cover next season! Thank you again @Layne.

I couldn't use mine by June this year so I claimed it back on my travel insurance a while ago, less £50 excess. I wish I'd held on now...

I kept rescheduling our 2020 tickets forward, but since they expired on May 2021, I called Eurotunnel and they've given us a voucher. Which is nice. A year to book and a further year to reschedule. TBH if I can't book a trip in the next 12 months then there are probably worse things to worry about.

When we booked for Easter back in Nov, they had introduced a new ticket type of refundable, so chose that. Rang them to cancel last week and money returned to card no issues

Just checked my frequent traveller wallet - showing 4 tickets still available and expiry 30/07/2021. That is a year extension to the original. I might be able to use one pair by then and will try for a further deferral.

All in all feel I’ve been reasonably treated so far.

@Layne, not much - it was an extra £40 for my ticket over standard - and as I've got the money back it was IMO worth it. The new Standard Refundable is a good middle ground between standard and the expensive flexi-plus

@Hells Bells, that's a pain - much as I love a freebie in current circumstances I like being able to cancel at no cost

I have six (I think) left from the original purchase that expired in Oct 2020 but now extended to Oct 2021. Seems unlikely we will use all 6 by then, but I might be lucky Laughing , so hoping they are going to do the decent thing and extend them again.

Makes sense under the circumstances given that they are having to extend lots of unused ones.

I would imagine once the border is more generally open again they will go back on sale.

Bump. With a few, (lot of ?), people now booking tunnel crossings again I just wondered if anyone has crossed the situation yet where they have wanted to make a frequent traveller booking on a subscription that has already been extended once and now past that date as well. Mine expired on 17/10/20 and was extended to 17/10/21. Still not had the opportunity really to use any of the remaining six and although I will probably use 2, or maybe 4, by the deadline was wondering if eurotunnel will extend again. I will ring up / email them but at the moment I understand they are a bit busy so was just wondering.

I booked last week using my one remaining Frequent Traveller trip which was at least 18 months old - I guess they are carrying forward without question?

The Frequent Traveller scheme will not be available for the foreseeable future but existing tickets may be used.

Tried a dummy booking and I can book anything up to 16/10 but is blanked off after that. 17/10/19 was when I bought the frequent traveller tickets.

I also booked one of my (long expired) returns last week and my account shows 2 crossings (one return) still available. I think I will make a speculative booking for Christmas which I can always change nearer the time to get the outstanding ones “in the system”.

No more new Frequent Traveller availability? I’ll have to take a closer look at the options.

Prices Shocked standard £91, standard refundable £131, Flexiplus £249 each way .Strewth! My FT wallet was £340 for 10 singles if I recall correctly, though I often hav3 a £20/30 supplement for peak day travel.

Might have to look at the ferry.

Dummy booking for the dates I’m travelling - £310. Well, I suppose they have been short of revenue!
