Ferry Travel Information

Travel Information

Reaching your destination is all part of the fun, and travelling to Europe has never been easier. We work with all the major cross-Channel operators, so you can reach the continent in just hald an hour with Eurotunnel, or indulge in a cruise ship experience all the way to Spain. Our holiday base price includes a mid-week P&O sailing from Dover-Calais with a car. There are supplements payable for trailers, motorhomes and caravans, and for other routes.

Some operators charge for overheight and overlength vehicles. Please note that capacity is often restricted for overheight vehicles and details must be given at the time of booking.

Please specify the type of sleeping accommodation you require and give alternatives as availability can be limited. Seats have a pillow and blanket provided on request. Most ferry companies now insist that sleeping accommodation is reserved for all party members on overnight sailings.

Please note that if you take a crossing which is earlier or later than that originally booked, the ferry company may impose a charge.
L.P.G. cars are only allowed by certain companies.

Due to the complex nature of our ferry supplements, our Reservations Team will be able to advise you on the supplement for each crossing according to the dimensions of your vehicle/s and the day/time of your sailing.
