    A while ago, someone posted a code, but I have no idea if it works, never had a chance to try it. Anyway, the code was oo4474RIV, or 004474RIV most likely, which should be entered in the staff box. You didn't get this from me, of course....Sorry if this sort of thing is frowned on, not sure of the etiquette, but it is a potential money saving, after all, and it was on here that I saw it before.

    Tried the tunnel codes above - no luck

    I too want a code as the tunnel is far more reliable than ferries in my experience...

    Sorry, it was a little while ago, and I suppose that the codes are changed regularly, for obvious reasons! Worth a try, anyway.

    Hi folks
    Eurotunnel do not do discount codes. Please do not use any staff codes as they do check and I do know of some folks who ended up being charged full whack by using them.

    If you book far enough ahead youwill get the 49 each way fares. The turn up and go fares are full whack as well I am afraid.

    Happy holidays

    That staff number belongs to someone, you haven't got it quite right anyway but it's similar to a staff code. However, I'd be livid if someone started posting my Eurotunnel staff code over the internet. There's a counter on how many discounted journeys staff and their friends can make over a short period, it's not much and the limit is there deliberately to prevent fraudulent use such as you are suggesting.

    If you know a member of Eurotunnel staff or a sub-contractor, you are able to legitimately use someone's staff code ONLY WITH THEIR PERMISSION and you would have to name at check-in who gave you the code.

    Staff discount is not that much anyway. A 24 hour return would cost me 42 instead of 50, a period return is also only a few quid cheaper.

    If you want a cheap Eurotunnel fare, go at an unsocial time and be prepared to wait 2 or 3 hours for a shuttle. So really the time gained on the short journey can be lost quickly in waiting for a shuttle.

    HI
    Thanks for your help. In the end i brought the "10 single tickets for 39 each" so that if we travel peak time the max we'll pay will be 69 per crossing, which when i booked up the 1am train was 59 outwards and the inward train at approx 4pm was 99 and we only paid an extre 30 on top of the 78 return it was still cheaper. we will go back to spain another 2 times befor the 10 tickets run out and their will be the wine top up trips too. This worked well for us.
