Hey

When I need or want to give advice on hitchhiking from the UK to mainland Europe or vice versa I usually refer to this page on Digihitch: Hitchhiking Into and Out Of The UK

It tells you that it is better to hitchhike to Europe or to the UK on motorway services: Maidstone in UK and Jabekke in Belgium.

However, these pages on the growing Hitchwiki resource mention Calais and Dover again as options to hitchhike: United Kingdom, Dover, Calais.

That's quite confusing to me. So, what is better? To hitch from the services or on the harbours. My guess the first. Would the Hitchwiki need to be edited on this?

It needs correction indeed, hitching the harbour isn't easy as it is prohibited to actually be in the harbour property. Most of the traffic all do the electronic check-in and therefore barely no traffic stops anymore at the Travel Centre for booking, the trucker flow is quite dense and there isn't really sideway for them to stop over.
The Tunnel is still the best option, from Maidstone Services, or potentially the truck stop in Ashford area. Maplefanta 00:56, 3 July 2007 (CEST)
