Eurostar dilemma - can anyone help ?

Recommended Posts

My student daughter, travelling from Newark on Trent this afternoon was due to take 5pm Eurostar train tonight to Paris. I'm looking at alternative solutions to get her home for Xmas.

This is what I've come up with:

she gets herself to Dover and hops over the channel as a foot passenger & gets train to Paris, or I pick her up in Calais

she tries to car-share from London or SE to N France or Paris  - any good car-pooling / car-share websites ?

Thanks a mill if you have any suggestions - ParisChic

I reckon that's the better option + you pick her up at Calais (probably no more than a 4hr roundtrip) & easier to 'schedule' than a slow train in to Paris.  Car share is unsafe for a young woman.

The only other thing might be a flight out of EMA in to CDG, but I'd imagine that's a dim possibility just now.

Best of luck.

Thanks for the input, Gardian, much appreciated - she's currently undecided whether to:

stay put in Newark over Xmas

travel to London & spend Xmas with friends

take the London-Dover-Calais-Paris option

She'll have to hurry up & decide as her train from  Newark is at 14.10    ;-)
