The problem I had was that I couldn't book a return trip from the Continent unless I took a car both ways, I even offered to pay for a car both ways but only bring one back, but they wouldn't wear that either. as I'd flown out to collect my Elephantino from Rotterdam and drive it back, I had to book the ferry when I got to Calais, I couldn't use the French Ferry website to book a single (cheaper) trip back from Calais as you must have a French Address to book on their French site.
Needless to say it cost an arm and a leg in comparison to a complete round trip with a car from the UK.

Eurotunnel let you book either way a single trip, I do it all the time when we go to France as never 100% know when I will be returning. Admittedly not as cheap as the ferries normally, but on single trip maybe? (We use their frequent traveller 10 trip package which has fixed pricing per trip, so not sure of pricing for a one off)

Hi Peter, this is a requirement of the breakdown insurance or even insuring a car not registered in your name, the trip has to start and end in UK.

This is for Simon, as regards the insurance guy you know, can he insure an Italian car temporarily for a trip through 3 countries for 3/4 days? I have a French address in my name.

I understand the start and end in UK, I assumed that so long as the trip does not normally last more than 30 days and with a limit to total days outside UK over the calendar year, the cover is fine, not that you had to book an out and return at the same time.

Still negotiating.........biggest issue is the car being exported and being de-registered, issued with temporary export plates /insurance for a Berlusconi-eque amount of money!

I will read the above link when I'm awake!
