Travelling from Calais to Amsterdam

Hi there,

Me and my friend are getting a ferry from Dover to Calais, then plan to drive from Calais to Amsterdam.

Does anybody know the distance it takes, how long it takes and how many tanks of fuel i will be using there and back??

I drive a vauxhall corsa sxi+ 1.2 ltr.

Any help will be great!

This site will help you with MANY of those questions:


Do you know how many miles your Corsa does to a tankful of petrol?? Or do you expect us to guess????

About 200 miles to Amsterdam so probably looking at about 3 to 4 hour drive. Good road links all the way. Assuming a steady drive at 40 mpg(?) then you're looking at about 5 gallons each way. About £55 return at todays prices.
