Trip To France/paris With Kids & Eurotunnel


Recommended Posts

Hello we are off for our first visit overseas with our new Bailey Carolina. We have 4 kids (under the age of 10) and are planning a long weekend over May bank holiday - we want to take in Paris central for a day (friday pm and Sat) and maybe a trip to eurodisney for a day (sunday) before returning home Monday. Has anyone had experience of good campsites that will give swift access to public transport to central paris / eurodisney. ....also is there an art to getting cheaper eurotunnel prices. ...........

Re Eurotunnel prices - we have found from past experience that it works out cheaper the earlier you book. ......also maybe a bit late for you for this year, but have you thought about Tesco clubcard deals? Great for paying for crossings! We have a Tesco credit card and put everything on it each month we can and pay it off in full and the points really do soon mount up.

Thanks - useful comment - need to now work out a good campsite that gets us into Paris quickly and Eurodisney for a daytrip by public transport/......

I've answered your other post . . and Jablines would suit admirably . .. :)

Agree, Jablines is probably the most convienient site for Disney, and becuase of this the local RER service into Paris. The other site, Quatre Vent isn't as close, but still a nice site, just slightly more remote.

 

Tip for local rail travel, if you expect to make more than one trip into the city then look at prices for a Paris Visite ticket or possibly Carte Orange. Paris Visite is a tourist ticket, for all public transport, the plus is that they come with a little booklet of discount tickets for various attractions in the city (not Disney, surprise surprise!) and you buy according to the areas you need to travel within, from a day to up to week, IIRC.

 

Carte Orange is a weekly commuter ticket for (I think) just the metro/RER system, and no discounts.

 

Tip for Disney, park at the rail station, cheaper & closer to the park, but get there early!!!!! Check opening times of some museums, as some are closed on certain days, on our easter trip last year we didn't get into the Musee D'orsay becuase it closes on a Tuesday (if memory serves me right).
