Fancy a trip to France, but finding it a bit tricky to find flights.

This is a very cheap way to ensure you can access Europe in the next couple of weeks

Hop on a ferry, and enjoy a day out in the French countryside for only £1.

This offer is due to expire on the 21st of April, and is valid for travel up to the 14th of May, excludes travel on the 28th of March.


Foot passengers £1 Sunday to Thursday and £5 Friday and Saturday
Departure after 7.50am and return before 10.00pm

Car and up to nine people:
£17 for an afternoon trip, must depart after midday and return before midnight,
Available seven days a week.

£17 depart and return the same day, Sunday to Friday
£10 surcharge on Saturday

Hopefully the link will take you through to the P&O Daily Mail offer page but if it doesn't just apply the code thedailymail or dailymail in the promotional code box.

The terms on the site state that if you don't complete the entire booking, they will charge the card you paid with the full amount for a one way ticket. So if you're using this to access Europe in order to make your way to an open airport, or event you can't miss, I'd suggest picking up a prepaid debit card, Royal Mail Travel card or similar, and using that to pay.

Hope this helps a few people escape the UK for an afternoon, or perhaps to return home.

Probably not a bad idea to book some of these up if you are due to fly out to Europe or elsewhere in the next week or two, at least then you have a way to access Europe, and at £1 a pop it's cheap insurance. If this continues much longer the ferry services will be overwhelmed very quickly.

EDIT : I'm now having trouble accessing the website due to heavy traffic, it was working fine ten minutes ago, so if you're in need of a Ferry tickets at a great price it may pay to keep checking the website, as this offer can't be booked over the phone.

EDIT : Just received email confirmation of my booking, I'm due to fly out to the Caribbean on the 25th, and at least now I have the peace of mind that I can access European airports to get there if the UK is still having issues. I think I'll sleep better tonight. Fingers crossed I'll find it hard to get back and will be stuck there longer.

I thought there was only limited space on these ferries.


There was availability from tomorrow onwards when I checked, EDIT: earliest available is now next Wednesday, as flights aren't looking like being cleared to fly in the next few days, it may be a cheap way to book a back up if you are due to fly out next week :thumbsup:

Boom times for ferries, it may be a good time to ask for a pay rise!

I'm not sure that LD Lines carry foot passengers on some of those services, cars and freight only. Beware of Sea France as they are effectively bankrupt and in serious dispute with the unions, knowing the French mentality they will probably call a full strike on Monday!
Brittany Ferries run services from Portsmouth, Poole and Plymouth to Western French ports, Caen, Roscoff and,Cherbourg.

Almost all ferry services from UK to Ireland are fully booked, Stena may be running extra services from Holyhead from tomorrow. Other operators to check out are Fastnet Line from Swansea to Cork, Irish Ferries running from several Welsh ports to Dublin/Rosslare. The northern services from Stranraer to Belfast have very limited spaces available.

Check out P&O from Hull and DFDS from Newcastle, the service from Rosyth to Zeebrugge is still taking bookings.

From the P&O website:

If you are planning on travelling as a foot passenger we regret we are unable to accept any further bookings before Wednesday 21st April.

All we need now is for the volcanic eruptions to trigger an earthquake and have a massive tsunami ripping down the North/Irish Seas and the English channel, with a BA strike and a little flurry of snow to top it all off for the perfect storm :)

Me, I'm staying indoors with my tinfoil hat on :)

I bet nobody can find an offer price, as the companies will see the grounding of air traffic as a perfect excuse to profiteer. No company is going to sell you something for £1 if they can sell you the same thing for £100. In business, greed prevails.

Yes, and P&O have increased the foot passenger price from £7 to £50.

At the moment Dover is chocker, and isn't usually this busy during the year except at Christmas.

P&O are now taking foot passengers overnight, usually they only allow vehicle passengers on board.

Good Luck....let's hope the ash cloud has cleared by then

Prime Minister Fillon said a decision had been made to suspend all air traffic at all airports north of Nantes and Lyon in France, including Paris-region airports Roissy-Charles de Gaulle, Orly, Le Bourget and Beauvais, until "at least" Monday morning.

I done one of these 2 years ago and they soooo messed up my crossing:x Firstly, they said I could change the original weekend crossing to a 4 day crossing for only £15 more, when I phoned back to do it they tried charging me full cost £70 odd . After listening to the call they agreed that they had mis-informed me and that they would honour the original quote.

When I returned on the Monday at Calais they told me that I had been booked on the SUNDAY! I had to pay full price for a one way crossing there and then to get home as there was no arguing the point. In fairness to them they did refund the cost of the whole trip and gave me a free crossing to use anytime within the next year.

That said, if you're doing a simple booze cruise or day trip and nothing even remotely complicated you should be fine.:whistling:
