Went over there a couple of times last month. For prices , the £ is worth a lot less now so the saving is none typically so there is no good deal once it is converted to £ from €. However for a day out to buy the things that you would not get here then go for it.
#7
Just bear in mind on these offers that you have to use the exact crossings; get delayed on the M25 getting to Dover or at Customs coming back (and French Customs are v*e*r*y slow) and have to catch a later crossing then you'll be surcharged.

I'd have gone for this if I hadn't already booked a £10 onboard shopper fare.

Current advice is DONT be tempted to do that, unless you manage to pay cash for your ticket (which as far as I know they dont let you do any more). Thats because buried deeeeeeeeeeep within the ferry mobs T&C they reserve the right to surcharge your card if you 'cheat' the system. They got done a while back with some offers of cheap day returns where peeps were buying TWO sets of tickets, using the outward portion of one set and the return of the other, if you see what I mean, so now they'll happily charge your card for the FULL return journey regardless. From what I remember, theres currently a court case pending from some chap trying to sue for his money back, but it aint happened yet so they will DEFINITELY surcharge you until the courts tell them they cant! Hope that helps...

Harsh; it's quite clearly indicated under clause 5 (travel and surcharges)..........you DO read the t&c's before handing your credit card details over, don't you?

Don't you?

As with most things in life, it's the minority of scammers who ruin it for everyone else.

Oh, its "clause 5" for EVERY operator, is it? How the hell do you know which ferry company I use? Get a grip - I was trying to give the previous poster some information relating to her question.
And personally, I dont think someone using the deals offered to his own best advantage is a "scammer" in the first place!

If you are shopping have a look at Auchan Calais site it is in English and has current fuel prices the € is a nightmare at the moment if you can get a Nationwide or Post Office Credit Card there is no foriegn currency handling fee and the rates are better than the cash rate

BE AWARE A 48 HOUR STRIKE AT DOVER PORT IS ON THE CARDS TUESDAY AND WEDS NEXT WEEK

Both Majestic & Oddbins have offers on where you pre-order with them and they pay the ferry fee - whatever time you book for.

I went last week and the guy at Oddbins (very nice BTW) indicated that they would pay even if you didn't pre book. Spent a fair bit and he gave me a voucher for another free crossing.

I spent about 3 hours doing a comparison with Tescso, Majestic & Oddbins: Tesco was the most expensive by a long way so we gave it a miss.

In a previous thread someone asked about Comté cheese. It's £16.99/kg at Waitrose (the only major UK supermarket to sell it) and £23/kg at Borough market - Carrefour in Cité Europe sell it for €12.50/kg. That's a real bargain.

French customs were no problem for us. No-one checked our passports on the way out (either French or British - so much for embarkation controls :roll:) and it took us about 10 minutes the other way. Fairly quiet mind you.

Apologies; this is a P&O thread and I was referring to their t&c's.
#17
Did anyone make a note of the code for this?
Think P&O may have made a mistake on this.
Site just saying 'due to heavy traffic etc.etc.' But the site is still ok through Quidco. So if anyone has the code I will try and book a trip via Quidco.. Thanks

As has been suggested elsewhere, its not 'scamming' to take advantage of a retailers offer in the way that best benefits you, the consumer. In fairness, if that was the case then I'd suggest that this complete website wouldn't/shouldn't even exist! Peak Pricing is a pretty basic marketing policy, but just because its written in the T&C doesn't necessarily make it lawful - I can think of four or five sites off the top of my head who's Terms are in direct breach of the DSR, and because yer average Joe Punter is a pretty ignorant chap in terms of his rights (members of this forum excepted, of course!) they get away with that.
As I've said, there is at least one case pending in relation to this exact issue - making an additional charge to a card 'post purchase' - and unless the applicant is a complete fool then he must have at least some hope. The customer has paid for his journey, at the rate offered by the ferry company, so why should they be able to make an additional charge for that journey? Anyway, thats not for us to argue here, its for blokes with wigs who make a lot of money from it, but hopefully we'll eventually find that post-purchase charges are not lawful, and P&O (plus all the others - its not fair to single them out) will have to work out a different way to maintain their several tier pricing methods

I think my use of the word "scammers" has been taken out of context; I was referring to people who used to buy cheap day returns and then spend a week over there and then pitch up in Calais with a fabulous excuse about the delay in returning having been caused by having contracted the mumps and "can we just board as normal?" :?
banned#20
I'd suggest that thats an entirely different scenario to that proposed earlier in the thread. In your example, the customer is asking to travel other than in accordance with his ticket, and rightly that should fall on the mercy or otherwise of the operator. In the example I mentioned, the customer travels outward in full accord with the first part of his first ticket, and then travels home in full accord with the return part of his second ticket. The penalty applied in that instance is for NOT travelling when you've paid for, and is patently spurious - the operator has obviously not encountered any loss by you NOT travelling!
Anyway, we're going round in virtual circles - we obviously just misunderstood each other. I was just pointing out that the poster before me might not find his proposal to be 'plain sailing' (pun intended), and that I thought it was a **** customer retention tool!
