    mile for mile it's cheaper to travel to the moon than to the Isle of Wight
    jamhops's avatar
    $775 per mile to the moon, let me know your provider for the moon I am interested

    haven't been there for years. Is this the cheapest for 1 adult? any deals on a car? Swear i have seen cheaper, but it may be because i don't have kids or i don't know if its another ferry provider.

    yes 1 adult and 2 children day return by foot passenger is £22.60 during school holidays

    not looked at cars, assume is extortionate tbh

    Paid £65ish with the car, traveled last Sunday, booked on Friday with 10% off, nice day out. Dover - Calais day return is still £39 though
