We became members of BF Owners Abroad (as it was then) about 11 years ago when we bought our house, we travelled over (to cut the grasss and sweep up the dead flies) virtually every holiday except Christmas.
We then converted a barn to a luxury gite and it is perfectly OK to pass on the code to family and gite renters, so we do. We get a £10 allowance towards a ferry trip each time our code is used (same as Mr Plodd) up to a maximum of £150.
Most years we get a £30 - £40 allowance.
We also get UP TO a 30% discount off our bookings, note that bit "up to"....... it is generally 20%. AND we get a discount off meals and a free breakfast (basic) so to us it generally represents good value - we do 3 or 4 trips each year so the £90 per year cost is covered, although BF is by far the most expensive crossing of all - they will justifiably claim that is because it is the LONGEST crossing.
All of these details can be covered if you take the tine to read the terms and conditions for the scheme - where the restrictions on sharing your code are also explained.
