UK Border?

Had to come back early to UK so used up my outbound/inbound days. Still have 5 travel days remaining before end of July and wondered whether the UK/France border begins at London St Pancras International when you pass through French passport control there. If so, can you travel using a normal travel day even though technically you are still in the UK until the tunnel & not require an outbound day?

No, the app will require an inbound/outbound day to log the Eurostar. It won't work.

Have a look at ferries: Harwich - Hoek van Holland is really convenient (20% discount with Interrail in summer), Newhaven - Dieppe too. Bit more of an hassle with Dover - Calais.

Otherwise flights, Flixbus or expensive Eurostar tickets...

No. You cannot use pass for Eurostar without using a in/out day

I thought that would be the case even though you are technically in France when you board the train at St Pancras. Thanks for your help.
