Travel from London to France by Eurolines

Travel comfortable in Eurolines coaches! No matter where you live; Eurolines will take you from any National Express departue point in the UK to nearly 30 cities in France. London and Paris have a very extensive network of international coach connections, daily up to 10 pairs run between the two capitals. If you plan to travel by coach into northern France, the journey probably won’t require connecting coaches, but when travelling into the southern regions of France, it will be unavoidable to change coaches. There isn’t a direct connection from London, which reaches out to all cities in France. Before the coach terminates, it also stops in a few other big cities and towns in France. Some coaches stop in Canterbury, Gillingham, Folkestone (for Kent) and Dover. In peak summer season you will find more connections, naturally the exact timetable is subject to change – just check the current information directly on the Eurolines website

How to buy tickets online for travel from Britain to France?

To purchase tickets online you can do it using the journey planner provided. You can also do it on the Eurolines UK or National Express websites. Simply fill out all fields in the journey planner and follow the instructions to buy a ticket. Early booking is highly recommended, because the Eurolines route between London and France is very popular and the coaches are fully booked on some days. 
Passengers with open date return tickets, must confirm/reserve their return journey with a local Eurolines office at least 4 days before the date they wish to travel. Simply phone Eurolines office in Paris: (08) 92 89 90 91

There are several simple ways:

  • For most of the connections offered by Eurolines UK you can make a purchase through our journey planner, located on the front page. Just fill in all fields and follow the instructions.
  • To purchase tickets online, you can also do it directly on the Eurolines UK or National Express website. On the websites you'll find all the names of larger and smaller towns, cities and airports. The Eurolines journey planner presented below doesn't show all available stations and stops.

Types of ways in which the ticket is obtained:

  1. e-ticket: a ticket you must print yourself at home,
  2. by collection: in one of the National Express office,
  3. by post: allow 7 working days.

Note: In some cases e-tickets may be not available for the journey, this happens when the connections are made with companies other than National Express. You can still buy a ticket online, but it will be delivered by post or it will be ready to collect in the offices of National Express.

Bookings via nationalexpress.com & eurolines.co.uk

Use this form to book direct with www.eurolines.co.uk & www.nationalexpress.com - all the cheap fares shown. Victoria Coach Station (or central) is Eurolines's London station.

Travelling to Europe from outside London

National Express together with Eurolines offer nationwide connections to London for a simple add-on price of £15 single or return. Just enter the name of the place from which you start the journey, in the box defining the place of departure. London will automatically be treated as a transfer point. Unfortunately, this option is only available for certain Eurolines connections, so if you won’t be able to purchase a ticket with this option, you'll have to buy two separate tickets. One ticket for access into London by National Express, the second ticket for the international Eurolines route from London. 
It's easy. Buy a ticket online now.

The journey from London to France by Eurolines

France is connected with the UK by coach like no other European country - up to 10 direct environmentally friendly and comfortable Eurolines Plus services between London and Paris every day. The Eurolines' coaches are built to make your journey as comfortable as possible. Each coach has on-board toilet and washroom facilities, reclining seats and air-conditioning as standard.
In addition to standard Eurolines coaches, London to Paris operates Eurolines Plus coaches. These are the same as standard Eurolines except you can enjoy extra leg room, free Wi-Fi and watch DVDs. Folding bikes are accepted.
Sometimes the coach that picks you up from your departure point has only the final destination displayed on the front windscreen. This is because the majority of Eurolines routes include multiple stops and it would be impractical to display every stop on the front windscreen. Also, you may have booked a journey which requires a change of coach. In both examples, please ask the driver to confirm that his/her coach is going to the destination stated on your ticket.
 Eurolines put the safety and comfort of passengers first, so the vehicles are equipped with a large number of safeguards. The operators are using modern vehicles with large panoramic windows and increased legroom.
Eurolines coach services to France depart from Victoria Coach Station in London which is located close to Victoria Underground and bus stations. Eurolines coaches arrive at the Eurolines Coach Station, located by Gallieni subway stop. Buy a ticket online now.

The carrier provides service to any person who has purchased a ticket. Number of tickets for the designated route is limited to the number of seats. Having a valid ticket guarantees you use of the service (seat on the coach), however it does not reserve any particular place.
Single and return tickets (with the indicated date and time) are for a specific journey, you cannot miss the departure, because you will lose the ticket.
Best to buy tickets well in advance. Eurolines has many discounts for those who decide to purchase tickets in advance. Constant, although a slight discount is provided for youth, elderly and disabled people. Up to 50% discount is provided for children. Unless you get a good promotional fare (mostly the FunFare ticket), return fares are much cheaper than two single fares each way.


  • Before leaving home for your Eurolines service, check you have packed all documents and items needed for your journey, especially your ticket, passport (sometimes it is enough to travel with ID card) and if your journey requires a special visa to enter or transit.
  • Arrive at the Victoria Coach Station in London at least one hour before the departure time, as check-in proceedings are quite lengthy. Customers need to check-in at the Eurolines check-in office located adjacent to Gate 19. Check-in commences one hour before departure and closes 15 minutes before to enable all customers to board and to ensure a prompt departure.
  • Your luggage should be marked tags bearing name, address and telephone. Please weigh your luggage at home.
  • Never accept other persons luggage for transport! Should you notice any luggage left unattended, never touch it! Report the fact to the station’s service staff immediately. Never leave your luggage unattended!
  • When approaching the check-in desk, have your passport and ticket ready. This will streamline the procedure.
  • Border control & customs: When going through security check, place all metal items such as keys, watches, belts with large buckles, mobile phones, walkmans, small change etc in the boxes, and place them on the conveyor belt of the X-ray machine together with your hand luggage & suitcases. It is advisable to place your overcoats in the boxes. This will streamline and facilitate security control.
  • If needed, remember to take your doctor’s certificates.

Check-In at London Victoria Coach Station

You need to check in at the Eurolines check-in office located adjacent to Gate 19. Check in commences one hour before departure and closes 15 minutes before, to enable all customers to board and to ensure a prompt departure. You should have your passports and other travel documents ready for inspection at check-in. A boarding card for each customer and luggage labels will be issued and customers will be advised from which gate their coach will leave. Check in time at other UK departure points is 30 minutes before departure. If the office for check-in is already closed, check-in takes place directly on the coach. Buy a ticket online now.

Check-In in France

In Paris (Gallieni) Eurolines Coach Station, Ave du Gen. de Gaulle check-in is one hour before departure at the counters. If there is a Eurolines office that is open close to your departure point you can check-in at the counter - otherwise directly with the driver. From all other French departure points you check-in with the driver of the coach. Services returning to London arrive in Victoria Coach Station’s Arrivals terminal, customers making onward coach connections will need to cross the street to the Departures terminal

Sea crossings

This route involves a sea crossing which, depending on which service you are on, will either by Eurotunnel or by ferry (check timetables for specific information). On arrival at the ferry port or Eurotunnel terminal customers will be required to disembark from the coach and pass through both UK and destination country Border Control offices and show their Passports. Normally customers are not required to be accompanied by their luggage, however occasionally Border Control officials do require customers to take their own luggage with them.

Refreshment stops

Refreshment stops are taken periodically throughout the journey providing the opportunity for refreshment and shipping services used by Eurolines provide a range of shops, restaurants and other facilities.

Carriage of luggage

All Eurolines customers must label their luggage which will be loaded into the hold of the coach and will normally remain there until arrival at the destination or interchange point. The Coach driver will load and unload customers’ luggage but customers are responsible for seeing their own luggage onto and off the coach on which they are travelling.
Each customer has a free luggage allowance of two medium sized suitcases, weighing no more than 20 kilograms each and 1 piece of hand luggage, which must be located on the shelf above your head or under the passenger seat. Buy a ticket online now.

Travel insurance

The best way to protect against unexpected accidents is to buy travel insurance. In my opinion, so that the journey is stress-free, you should never travel without travel insurance. You can insure only for travel, it’s possible directly on the Eurolines website, during ticket purchase. You can also insure individually with another insurer. This will be the insurance that will apply during the journey and while in a foreign country. The insurance should cover: loss of cash and goods, cancellation of travel and medical treatment abroad. If you travel several times a year and want to save money, you may want to buy an annual insurance policy. Click here to buy insurance.
