Running out of time to buy the essentials?
Don't panic - the AA has shops at Folkestone and Dover to ensure that you are fully equipped with all the legal requirements when driving in Europe.
At both AA Shops we sell all the last minute legal requirements for driving in Europe, a range of travel guides, maps and atlases and much more. You can even buy European breakdown cover or apply for an International Driving Permit at the desk in either shop.
At the AA Shop: Eurotunnel, we welcome all Eurotunnel passengers and can be found in the main passenger terminal building.
We're open seven days a week from 06:00 to 20:00, but these hours may be extended during busy 'holiday' periods and bank holiday weekends.
