Train or ferry rather than plane to France

“Holidaymakers are increasingly choosing to travel to the Continent by train and ferry rather than by air since the terror alerts of August 10.” – so runs a headline on the Telegraph!
Not surprising really, given the rather disproportionate hassle and time delay which air travel for short-haul destinations now involves – such that you are likely to spend considerably more time getting to,into and within the major airports for most French destinations than you will in the air!

Somehow the idea of casually turning up at the airport and hopping on the plane to jet off to France has been lost with the latest security alerts – compounded by the searches and delays. You cannot really question the need for security these days, but nevertheless travel by train or ferry + car becomes a more attractive option, and certainly the train to Paris (from London and the South East at least) must be hard to beat in terms of time, cost or hassle!!
