FRANCE ON Le Shuttle FROM JUST pounds 12; Greatest ever Shuttle offer.

To France from just pounds 12* for a car and all the passengers - yes, it's the best Shuttle day trip deal ever!

A day trip on Le Shuttle could cost you as much as pounds 85. But not with The Mirror. .We've teamed up with Le Shuttle to offer Mirror readers this not-to-be-missed chance to pop across to France for the day and pick up some of the best duty-free bargains around. There are three special Le Shuttle deals:

The Early Bird deal from only pounds 12* for your car and all passengers. Travel out from Folkestone between 1am and 6am, and return from Calais before 4pm on the same day.

The Afternoon Trip, leaving Folkestone between 2pm and 8pm and returning from Calais before midnight of that same day. This is as little as pounds 17* if you travel Monday to Saturday, or pounds 15 on a Sunday.

The Daytrip, leaving Folkestone any time before 8pm and returning from Calais before midnight on that day. Our bargain price is from pounds 25* Monday to Saturday, or pounds 19 on Sundays for a car and passengers. Le Shuttle couldn't be easier to use. Take Junction 11a off the M20 which leads you straight to Le Shuttle tolls - and a smooth ride from England to France, whatever the weather.

You can stay in the comfort of your car throughout the 35-minute journey, or get out and stretch your legs if you wish.

Before you board Le Shuttle, call in the passenger terminal for some great duty-free bargains. For instance, a litre of Gilbey's Gin costs just pounds 6.50 - saving an average of pounds 6.25 on High Street prices (see grid).

*A pounds 10 supplement is payable for travel on Saturdays after October 24, 1997.
