Calais Mini Guide

 Calais is a coastal town in northern France which overlooks the narrowest point between the UK and France. The Channel is only thirty-four kilometres wide there and on a clear day you can see all the way to the English coast. Calais has been a prosperous port throughout its history mostly due to its convenient location.

To get to Calais you could collect a rental vehicle from the UK and take one of the daily ferries that run from Dover to the French port or collect a vehicle directly in Calais as soon as you step off the ferry. We advise pre-booking your car hire in advance as rental cars in Calais do get booked out very quickly.
