Costs of France ferry travel reduced

Posted on 30 March 2009 by Dan Johnson

The cost of travelling to France in August has just got cheaper. We have launched savings of up to 50% on ferry crossings with Brittany Ferries and on Wednesday (April 1) we launch more discounts with P&O.

The savings are only available to siblu customers and include a £72 discount on Brittany Ferries’ Fastcraft sailings from Portsmouth to Caen and Poole to Cherbourg, which are both now available from £108, down from £180 (based on a car and up to five passengers, for early morning weekend departures in August).

Brittany Ferries’ Fastcraft sailing from Cherbourg to Portsmouth, on the 20:30 weekend service in August, is now half the cost, with travel from just £90, saving the same amount.

For short crossings, we will reduce weekend P&O Dover to Calais ferries to just £15 each way for a car and up to five passengers, for sailings from 24 July to 22 August. Previously, they cost £23 each way.

These are incredible family prices and, unlike the budget airlines, there are no hidden extras, excess baggage charges or costly check-in fees. If you want to travel abroad, then France truly is the cheapest foreign country to get to.

  1. Its a very good message to the ferry lovers like me. Yes, i too travel much by ferries. Last month I was to france with my collegues, and enjoyed an excellent onboard service of ferries. They offered a very good discount deal and we were with our car too.

  2. It’s much easier and cheaper to take the train to be honest. That’s what we always do when we go to France. With the Euro train, you don’t have to worry about the weather conditions, and you can just go direct, which is great because I always get confused changing transport.

    But which gives you most flexibility when you are there? I love travelling to Paris by train for business, but if I was travelling to the coast with family, I think I’d prefer the ease of a car. What do you think?
