Brittany Ferries robbers.

Because of my sis in law having a big birthday this year we booked my wife a 3 week car return in April £214 with discount.

As if that wasn't bad enough I thought I would just pop over for TWO DAYS on the event. BF price car return £207.

But of course their priority will be "essential medication" £54 million.....

Agree totally, the prices from April onwards are crazy...

We regularly pay around £100 for a period return to the mainland from the Isle of Wight. The crossing to Portsmouth takes just 40 minutes, to Southampton a bit longer at 1 hour. Either way, it makes Brittany Ferries prices seem quite reasonable

I should add that those prices are for our little Hiyundai i10, our Motorhome would be well over a ton......

We'll be heading in any direction that fancies us, but won't be crossing the English channel

For years, we've used the Eurotunnel apart from BF Portsmouth - Santander a couple of years ago.


On our return this year on 1st Feb, as per usual we were up sharp for Eurotunnel crossing and having taken cat to Pet Passport we trundled round to check-in.


Usually if we are early, we are offered an earlier train at no extra cost. This year they wanted +£125.!! Sod that and stuck to our 09:35 crossing.


Turns out there was a Eurostar train with problems and our check in was going to be delayed. Went outside and turned the gas back on and decided to have another coffee and breakfast. Just then, noticeboard flashed up proceed so back out, turned off gas and checked in even earlier. Was back in UK before our scheduled time so all OK.


Got as far as Rugby before finding a CL as fairly tired by this time.



Cheers,
Alan

Is that the fast ferry Ray from Cherbourg? Last time I used that it was about £200 one way in the van. Mind you its an impressive beast. goes like the clappers. About 48 knotts I think.

We always use Eurotunnel - we still use Tesco vouchers (but try not to get peeved by their reduced value compared to years gone by) - they still feel like “free” money.
When we have no vouchers, we still use Eurotunnel - the convenience, speed, and frequency of crossings is great for us. We rarely pay more than about £100 for a crossing. I did almost have a laughing fit when, like Alan at check in, we were offered an earlier crossing for an additional premium - of over twice the price we had paid for our ticket - not exactly a tough decision.
Our choices are helped by the fact that neither of us like being on the water - and the absence of surcharge for our length (9m).

Time to start planning a trip


Regards,
John

No Barry. It the slow 6 hour crossing Caen to Portsmouth and back.

As I need to be in Bognor I'm looking at the Dieppe to Newhaven crossing being cheaper but more miles this side.
