The only thing that'd put me off would be the type of people this will attract!! I imagine a ferry full of absolute scum, heading over to stock up on cheap cigarettes and dragging their horrible children alongside them.

Fantastic deal if you live in the South East. Why do P&O never offer these deals on their Irish Sea crossings?

Anyone ever had aggro whilst driving in France eg: police etc

Not if you're polite and attempt to speak the language, even if you struggle like I do.
I had a car accident several years ago when someone hit me in the side. Off to the police station and they blamed the other guy. I knew one of the policemen could speak english but I continued in french and I guess it helped. Also the other officer present was not relying on his partner's interpretation of what I was trying to say.
Some of us brits think it is compulsory that wherever we go the locals should speak to us in english which doesn't always go down well.

I got into trouble with the Spanish police once (speeding while using mobile phone). They wanted the fine on the spot, so I started crying and was let off, even received a cuddle from one of the cops, ha! Pretty sure the French cops won't be much smarter.

Moral of the story - stick to the ferry with the scum and their horrible children. It's safer then being on the road with the speeding whilst phoning idiots. oO

Used to do these deals all the time back in the late 90's to get some bottled beers in. Hardly worth it now with the price of petrol and beer prices over there.

This isn't really a deal. If you just go to the P&O website and go to book, they have return passenger fares for £1 whether you use the Sun code or not. I know this as I did it a couple of days ago without any code.

A good reason to get on the same Ferry as the Chav scum is that they are more likely to get stopped by the Police than you are.

Thanks for the 'Heads' up OP.
Might consider this for a day out.

How much are tabs?

I think it's ironic that most foreigners can speak and understand English yet our French and Spanish is relatively poor in comparison.

I never really bother trying to speak Spainish or French because I bet to them I'd just sound stupid, Hello and thank you is probably all you need to get by lol.
#25
Booked, many thanks X)
#26
Did this a couple of weeks ago. Not a new offer I don't think. I just search for Daily £1 ferry or Sun £1 ferry and you usually get an offer come up.

With the price of petrol I would think this is only worth it for those in the South East. The deals for beer on the ferry were actually found to be better than what we saw in the superstores. I got a 24 create of 500ml Spitfire cans for £13. Kronebourg 500ml cans were on offer at 2x24 crates for £22. Supermarkets cant beat that.

Ferry is pretty grim but your on it for less than 90 minutes.

We went for wine as have a wedding coming up. Got table wine at £2.50 a bottle. Got to taste it all and as good as stuff at £6/£7 a bottle stuff here. Also got some lovely champagne at about £11 a bottle.

Still worth it if you arent driving too far and buying enough. I will be going again in the autumn to stock up.

Best wait for the £20 return deal recently posted for Eurotunnel for car and 9 passengers with no restrictions on departure/return times. I was told they will offer this every now and again, and they have posted again since I went with my family. Also collected 5 Euro special tickets instead of 15 euros per person for entry into the Aquarium in Boulogne http://www.nausicaa.fr/index.php?lg=en&gclid=CKj1j6mOtakCFYob4QodRT4AKw which was the best thing we did all day. Shopping centre called Cite Europe which is near the port of Calais isn't cheap so best shop outside Calais for better deals before racing back for your Shuttle or ferry.

Good deal for £1 foot passenger Last time I went it in 1944 it cost nothing but we had some trouble with some Germans when we landed

France is the bit across the water at the bottom of 'In-glurnd'.

In the English Channel - geography not your strong point then ?

We took the ferry across to France on a trip to DisneyLand Paris recently - P&O have a new super ferry which we got on the way out and I have to say it was lovely. Very nice crossing, nice enough breakfast in the restaurant (if a little overpriced) with plenty to keep the children amused on board. That said the ferry for the return crossing wasn't quite as nice, apparantly due for replacement later this year and we could see why.

You don't need to use the ferry to head over and stock up on booze and fags, try visiting one of the WW1 war cemeteries, or visit Nausicca in Boulogne, wander round the old town, head down the coast to Le Touquet. St Omer is also a nice destination (not just a brand of beer).

The opinionated views of some on here are just shocking - because the deal is published in the sun, the boat is going to be full of chav scum with out of control children, looking for cheep fags and booze. Sounds like the voice of experience to me :p

Thanks OP great deal. These do come up frequently and as 1 that goes over once a month to stock up on wine beer and ciggies.
Straight up the motorway to Aidenkirke,Belguim have breakfast, buy ciggies and tobbacco. Down into De Panne have a couple of drinks in a pavement cafe. Then drive back to Calais visit a warehouse not of the Pidoux type, which quite frankly is a rip off,Load up with wine and beer. New World wine because I prefer it to French. Then into Auchan for cheese, pate and bread have a meal in the Bleriot reataurant and then back to the ferry.
Wonderfull day out, never get tired of it.
But I do live locally and as stated l go every month so I do know where I am going.What ever ferry you go on you will get 'yer chavs' they are annoying but you put up with it.
There ye go!!!

What's Auchan like compared to carrefour? Is that the sit of the old 'le mammouth' or whatever it was?
#36
Very little to choose between them. I use Auchan [formerly Mammouth] because the car park is easier. And le Bleriot cafe is there. Mind beer in french cafe's now very expnsive.

Possibly, or it could be full of hard working parents (with good qualifications and jobs if you really need to assuage your snobbery, so hard working that they 'earn too much' to have any of this tax credits nonsense that the people who don't have £1100 a month childcare fees obtain), who don't have the extra reserve for ferry trips after paying the mortgage, bills and nursery fees.

Possibly not educated highly enough to understand the point that Gball was trying to make though?

the usual anti-Sun idiots come out of the woodwork.

why don't the mods crack down on their pointless posts that add nothing to the deal?
(im sure my comment will be removed and mods will say they are talking care on the anti-Sun nuts though!)
