Calais-Dover Ferry Prices

Ferry companies generally offer multiple rate options to accommodate different budgets. It’s advisable to compare rates and offers from various ferry companies to find the most suitable option.

The costs for the ferry between Calais and Dover vary due to factors including:

  • The type of vehicle
  • The number of passengers per vehicle
  • The chosen departure time

The Calais-Dover route also employs dynamic pricing, meaning prices are adjusted based on onboard demand.

Due to these dynamic ticket prices, having a complete cost overview in advance is challenging. You will need to individually review the websites of ferry services or use the ferry price comparison tool at the top of this page. This tool also allows you to inquire about Eurotunnel prices directly.
