Why only ferries to travel?

Why only ferries to travel? Is there any better option to travel for holiday trips? I put stress to travel by ferries only as it is much cost effective to my budget.

The EuroTunnel is also an option. Very fast, cheap and hassle free

+1 on the Eurotunnel

35 minutes will get you across the channel. The price is very cheap compared to any boat. I arrived a tad early (about 3 hours.. Hey, gotta be on time right?? ), but the woman let me get on the train anyway. Bikers on big bikes are cool

Free tip: the train will shake a bit, so make sure your bike is firmly on it's feet. My LT did a fine job on it's side stand.

Re: Why only ferries to travel?

For some parts of Europe, the Chunnel isn't an option unless you're prepared to take days out of your holiday to travel but I'm with the others about its usefulness. France, Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany are pretty straightforward from Coquelles.

Of course, it does rather depend on where you live. If you're well into the north then Folkestone's a long way and, depending on where you're going, a ferry from Hull, say, might make more sense, depending on the length of time you have free.
