“Carrentals - my now preferred supplier.”

“Excellent service from the Protoras, Cyprus office. Got exactly the car type that was booked on-line. No complaints. Carrentals will be my first go to site for any further bookings.”

Jayne Carwiz rent a car Pula Airport
“Quick, clear but would like better paperwork”

“I used recently for car hire in the Balkans. I found the site easy to use: clear and quick and booked my car through it at a good price. I particularly like being able to book the car and insurance (including excess cover) on one site at a good price. I booked with a local, though large supplier, rather than a global provider. This is important to me. Incidentally I’ve found car hire in the Balkans to be amongst the most efficient and relaxed I have experienced - I’ve taken 4/5 trips there now. I had 2 issues: - the resulting paperwork wasn't clear on the degree of insurance cover I had, so when I was looking for self-reassurance at the time of collecting the car (when offered extra insurance at pick-up) I had a moment of anxiety; - despite pricing for extra driver, when I purchased that wasn't included and that had to be booked direct with the car rental. Overall, I'd certainly look at again; although it's worth remembering that not all companies use this comparison site.”

Calais Ferry Port Guide


Calais is the predominant port for crossing the English Channel, with over 60 crossings a day made by catamarans and ferries to the English port of Dover. The famous white cliffs can be seen from Calais on a clear day, and with the SeaFrance and P&O jumbo ferries, the trip to the cliffs can be made in just 75 minutes.

SeaFrance crosses the channel on the hour, seven days a week. The journey time on this ferry is 1 hour, 10 minutes aboard the SeaFrance Rodin vessel, and 1 hour, 30 minutes aboard all other ferries. Snacks and banking services are available onboard.

P&O Ferries provides space for 650 cars and over 2,000 passengers. Passengers should arrive at the dock 30 minutes before departure. With both ferry companies, disabled persons' access on the ships is very good.

Inside the Calais Ferry Port terminal you'll find shops, cafes, restaurants and a bureau de change. The terminal is located within the city centre, making the conveniences of the city easily accessible.

If you've made the journey without a car and wish to rent one, there are several options. One option is to arrange car hire at the kiosks in the terminal building when you arrive but this can be expensive and a car is not guaranteed to be available. The most convenient and cost-effective way is to compare and book car hire online in advance. This way a car is guaranteed and you simply collect your car and drive away.
