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.
