Pol Remy Brut sparkling wine, 11% vol costs 1.10 from Auchan.
Cabernet Sauvignon, Lidl, 1.39
I know this is cheap but it's reasonable wine. Other offers usually on at Auchan including buy 6 get 6 free. I haven't seen a bottle of wine here less than £2 for a long time.

Great deal voted hot

Looks like now Seafrance have gone we have seen the last of the £19 car inc breakfast & a case of wine offer that P&O have been offering for the past couple of years.

True, but depending where in the country your coming from, by the time you have paid your fuel and your ferry fare, your not actually saving any money, as you say, lidl / aldi do some good offers nowadays!

do you have to come back same day? what happens if you book the 1 pound single and book a seperate return date...??

I was referring to Lidl in Calais.
True, it's not as good as it used to be. The deal with 6 free bottles on the ferry paid for the ticket. Also used to go over with an empty tank and fill up with diesel which would more than cover the ticket price. I am lucky enough, in this case, to live about 20 mins from Dover and haven't bought a bottle of wine in the UK for years. A couple of day trips a year keeps us going.

1 bottle with this Sunday Mirror offer. Using code SpringwineDT quoted by Shengis, it's 6 bottles, but it'll cost you £23.

Incidentally, I just ran an afternoon trip through the booking pages and it came to £15 using this mirror code.

Drink wine and get caught in France... lol

Has anyone ever done the overnight stay and visited Paris instead of staying in Calais? How was the journey?

Btw if your starting point is London, that would help me out even more. Thanks peeps

Calais to the Paris area is an easy drive.
Driving into or around Paris is a pain in the transmission

Its still worth the journey for cheap booze. I've been going to calaiswine.co.uk for the past year or so and prices are well below UK (British owned company too). They will also pay for your trip if you pre-order over £250. Another good place for booze Pidou. Over the past few years Tesco, Sainsbury, Oddbins and Eastenders booze outlets have all closed. Be interesting to see if they open up again once the governments minimum pricing per unit kicks in.

It's easy to drive to Paris but the tolls are more than the ferry. You can stick to the routes nationales but it adds about 90 mins to the journey (more interesting, though).

Still worth going for a booze cruise, Carrefour sell red Pays de Herault for about 75p a bottle, it's not amazing but perfectly drinkable. Decent sparkling wine is also about £1.10 a bottle. As always though take a corkscrew and glasses with you, buy one bottle of a few wines and try them in the car park, some are rubbish and price is no guide - we drank some nasty stuff that was £2.50-ish a bottle but some great stuff for less than a quid.

says only valid on ferries leaving after midday but works on bookings made anytime as far as i can see

EDIT: don't forget 4% Quidco also - that's a 68p saving if you go by car!

where can you stay if overnight trip?


Hi I just got back from a £17 + FBoW overnighter - stayed at a Camponile hotel - all ensuite and restaurant attached. Really good and 20% off if booking 20+ days ahead. For those on a budget use Formule 1. I saw the Last Post ceremony @ Ieper (Ypres) and then a day @ Brugges and stocked up @ Auchan and Majestic in France.

Auchan have some special promotions with excellent prices - they won't promote rubbish wine so go with their promotions - look out for the red cardboard collars round the tops of the bottles . Also Majestic in France have tastings on many good bargains.

Top tip : book into a Camponile hotel on the outskirts - free parking etc - and then get an all day or two-day combined rail and bus pass for your French foray to le centre - simpl€s !

"Eating

Top tip : for those on a tight budget but who still wish to dine in style - order the soup of the day at the Langans Brasserie on board and get a basket of bread rolls served for you instead of just the one you will get downstairs at the Food Court !

As I understand it if you default on your booked same-day return date you will have to pay the full whack to return to Blighty - they will probably already have your CC details so may make an "Authorised" penalty charge to your card. If you try and book on-line for return on a different return date for £1 you will not be able to process your order.

Prepare your will and tuck your mirrors in - although seriously driving round the Arc de Triomph is an aquired skill and should be on everyone's 100 things to do before you die list - even if it's the last thing you do !

cheers! I won't be driving it'll be my son who will have hopefully passed his text this year and go next year! Break em in young, he's very calm so that should help. I'll steer clear of the arc, just wanna drive in to the centre and get a place to stay and park up, we'll walk mostly.

Its not that bad driving in France...it is easy to get quite far in a day once you have crossed. I usually take the train for ease of use these days. The most boring part is driving across Belgium if you want to go anywhere in northern Europe.

Oh and one other thing to remember, TOLL ROADS - Anything south of Calais is a toll road only the E42 is not a toll road going north.

For cheap booze, and if you aren't near Dover, I'd recommend booking two seats from your province, on Megabus for perhaps £20 each (£40). Then you can stack both your luggage and your imaginary friend full of plonk. May need to hire a taxi at both ends as the booze goes straight to my imaginary friend's legs.
