We're going in a month so if you're going later happy to share our experience.

Because we're going with a dog, have to go on a ferry, otherwise would have gone via the tunnel.

Renting a transit van (Europcar has been the best deal) and taking our time about it, crossing in the evening, staying the night in Calais and then in Mulhouse. Monday morning "importing" ourselves in Basel. Then I'm driving the truck back myself and flying back.
Europcar told me that I can't rent a van outside UK, just their cars with an additional cover (around 70£)

We tried many companies and online was impossible, but it was eventually with them we phoned them and paid an extra fee but at the time many people said no.

Um, maybe the person was wrong? We could do this no problem a year ago. Of course they could have changed this policy.
