The Dover-Dunkirk route is a very popular alternative to the well known Dover-Calais route. Prices are normally cheaper and Dunkirk (or Dunkerque in French) is located very close to Calais. Only about a 40 minute drive. The crossing to Dunkirk lasts only two hours. Half an hour more than to Calais but for many people, especially those heading North, it is a lot more convenient.

      I decided to travel only with DFDS now, no point to pay more, plus less traffic there.
