Euro tunnel.

I want to hire a car in Calais, is there a way of hitching a lift through the euro tunnel? As they charge per car and splitting the price of a ticket, if someone had a spare seat in their car, would make sense.

People trafficking is illegal, so no one is going to take a random "hitcher".

Folkestone Taxi's woud take you, for a proper fee.

Why don't you travel on Eurostar?

Wouldn't get a ferry as a foot passenger make the most sense if cost is an issue?

Ferry foot passengers? - Only P&O, and only during hours of daylight.

Where do you want to go after Calais? It might make more sense to fly/take a train to somewhere closer to your destination.

Time is also an issue. I’d like to be able to get to Calais around 4am to be able to get on the road nice and early. I also have a small sausage dog with me and so don’t really want him cooped up too long in a ferry.

I’m going to Italy (about an hour north of Rome) I have a small dog with me that’s why I’m not flying in the first place. Just trying to figure out a cheap way of getting over the cannle. Thanks.

You can't take a dog on the ferry if you are a foot passenger.

You can't take any other than a proper service dog on Eurostar.

So your best option is going to be Folkestone Taxi's, who will take you and your dog on the Eurotunnel, for a fee.

How much do the taxi company charge? Is it taxi charge as well as the crossing cost?

Why don't you phone them up and ask them?

Their website is easy enough to find.

Try www.blablacar.com but if no one from Folkestone is going to Calais try London as your starting point.
