Not as good as the one before christmas but still excellent. The breakfast was huge and for what was efectively 3.75 each well worth it. Las tdeal had 6 JP Chenet free but its an ok wine.

Hot from me.

Any cheap places for fags when crossed over. I know it a bad habit, but so is giving nearly £6 to shops which gov gets most of.

we drive to Belgium as the French Tax went up a lot last year. The fags prices on the boat are more or less the same as all the shops in Calais, I think the French have rules about retail prices that keep them all the same.
I changed to rolling tobacco years ago.

TOBACCO imports for personal use - 3,200 cigarettes, 200 cigars, 400 cigarillos, 3 Kg smoking tobacco (British citizens only).

February 2011 - Golden Virginia is now £4.40 in Belgium (4.90 euro). The same pack costs £12.75 in the U.K. day-tripper.net/pri…tml

Now you know how we feel about all the home bargains deals posted on here, they are only available up north !!
At least you are further away from the French than us

What is it that you can do for the few hours you have? Can you go anywhere nice around there? Not interested in shopping really. It cannot be cheaper than hotdeals.

Original Poster

shopping except for fags/wine is a waste of time lately as dearer than UK. Some lovely beaches/national parks/canals/ scenery around there - we take picnic, flasks etc and drive around until we find a place we want to stop. There are also loads of museums etc, went to a war bunker one once.

Stop and shop in Adinkerke: stopshop.be/e/a…ke/

just off the A16 as you head accross the belgiun border

I am planning a channel crossing in April and as I've never done that before, I would be grateful if someone could advise.

I need to cross to France on 15/04 and cross back on 02/05. Can I use this offer booking 2 different day returns?

Thanks

No - they check the car reg to stop you doing that. If you don't return that night you weren't a day tripper. Some one was going to try it with prepay cards as a foot passenger ... never heard of them since. oO

Thanks for your reply. So if you don't return what do they do? Charge your card a higher price?

I don't see why they are bothered with people using the return or not.

9 People in your average 5 seat car !!! good luck with that one & try keeping 9 people happy on a quick flit for a few hours in Calais !! They would be throwing each other overboard on the ferry on the way back !!

Nice day out for those in South East - but if its going for beaches views - got better where I am.

If cheap deals arrive for a 2/3 day deal return ticket - great for a mini-break & if you can link to a travelodge £10 deal as well near Dover area - its a good un !!

You can travel as foot passenger from Dover to Calais, departing Monday to Thursday and returning back the same day for an unbelievable £2 per person*. You can also travel at weekends, for a small supplement. You've got until the 7th May to book, and until the 8th May to travel.
Once you arrive, a regular bus service running to and from the ferry terminal means you can spend the day sampling French culture, exploring the local markets and boutiques in Calais town centre, or relaxing on the beautiful beach.
