What about using the EuroTunnel?

Seems pretty cheap.

Traveling with your car may still be cheaper by ferry, but I’d check for specials on  the chunnel train, first.  I think you have to leave from Folkstone to put your car on Eurostar.  Here’s one source for information:  http://www.eurotunne…

You can ferry from Dover to Calais or from Portsmouth to a number of cities in Northern France.

Just wondering why you want to ship your car versus renting?

It may be special, but it’s really pretty tough to drive in a car that’s not set up for the side of the road you’re driving on.  It might also be expensive with insurance for the chunnel passage, different insurance and taxes in Europe and perhaps a VERY hefty drop off fee if you leave the car in Europe.  I believe Hertz offers a package that’s a car in UK, Eurostar ticket and another car in France.
