OK, standard prices for the dates I plucked out of the sky. Hopefully we will be able to get some money off each of these.

Norfolk Line - Dover to Dunkirk
Depart 1000 Monday 14 June 2011. Return 2201 25 June 2011. Cost £54 return (including fuel charge of £12).

P&O Ferries - Dover to Calais
Depart 0940 Monday 14 June 2011. Return 2150 25 June 2011. Cost £85 return (plus £4 credit card fee).

Eurotunnel - Folkestone to Calais
Depart between 8am and 10am Monday 14 June 2011. Return between 8pm and 10pm 25 June 2011. Return £138.

Ok now fuel.
If we take 30MPG as an average between cars different levels of modification, and useage of VTEC y0.
2500 miles (as a top level based on Owls initial route) is roughly 85 Gallons.
Cost per litre of approx £1.25 (fuel is about the same at the moment in France, well ish).
1 Imperial gallon = 4.55 litres
85 gallons = 386.75 litres
Total £485 for fuel
Then add 2 or 3% for card transactions, etc.

You had to pick the dates of the Nurburgring 24H race :lol:

Just so you're aware, that will be running from 22nd-26th June. The track will be closed and there will be about 200,000 people there.

It's worthwhile getting a credit card that allows free foreign transactions. I have a Nationwide credit card for when I'm abroad.

Balls :lol: :lol:
Looking at Owls route we should pass there in the first week so hopefully avoid the event if people want to branch away, as mentioned.

Thanks for the Nationwide idea. I have looked on their site and while commission free there is a 1% charge by third parties which is passed on, so better than normal.
I will have to check what my current cards charge and see how much they rip per go...

Worth noting that it's a two hour crossing with Norfolkline so you land in France 3 hours after leaving Dover. Can be a pain if on a tight schedule.
