Advice on best and cheapest way back to London from Paris
- 10 responses so far
I am pretty sure you can take advantage of a free transfer back to London on the bus – that is what I am doing… just be prepared to pay for a night in London – I don’t think that you Kiwi’a get a night before your tour paid for like us Canadians…
i’m not sure how the london paris tour works with the bus, I would recommend calling contiki to find out when the bus returns to london and if you can ride on it.
I’m doing the Great Britain and Southern Ireland tour after the London Paris one….The Eurostar train sounds fun <!--graemlin::)--> I’ve sorted and paid for accommodation in London that night already <!--graemlin::)--> Made sure my travel agent had that sorted….but he didn’t know the easiest way back to London…..Eurostar sounds like a plan if the bus isn’t going back <!--graemlin::)-->
Is there a way to find out if the bus is going back beforehand or would I need to wait until the actual tour starts to find out that sort of information?
That is awesome info thanks Matty <!--graemlin::)-->
I sure hope my bus is heading back to London after my European Whirl – I told them that when I booked it – the lady actually gave me the option of ending in Paris or London… although being stranded in Paris wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world!!
Hey there! We are doing a European Discovery tour in September. Been thinking about not taking the Contiki bus from Paris back to London and just do the Eurostar, so we can either spend some more time in Paris, or arrive early in London. Does anyone know how long is the travel time from Paris to London via the Contiki bus? What time does it leave Paris, and what time does it arrive in London? Thanks in advance! :)
Usually the busses leave around 8ish am. Depending on traffic and ferry times busses will get into London around 4-6pm. If you want to spend more time in Paris I would look at trying to get a flight out of paris instead of going back to London. While it’s usually not cheaper, it’s worth looking, if it only costs a little bit more it might be worth there being less hassel.
