Thanks, good deal!

I believe non EU will require a visa prior to travel.

Can anyone please confirm any on arrival visa?

I think this depends on nationality wether you need a visa

Wonder if this would work if you booked two return trips but only made the one outward and one return journey - thus giving a return price of £38 which is a lot cheaper than the average price of around £75. Might be worth thinking about.

Grief of course people need a Visa if you not a EU national.

Any idea what the cheapest way is to travel from London to Dover and back?

Trains cost something like £48 single x2 = around £100
Coaches are about the same so £38 single x2 = around £80

Calais is a dump,and without the opportunity to get any Duty Free it is a waste of time.

If you are talking about a car and using two tickets then,you may get a shock thru the post when you get your next card statement.

Both train and coach depend on time of travel; but I've never paid anything like £48 for the train. Check 2 weeks ahead of travel at southeasternrailway.co.uk

Do you think there would be some sort of surcharge for only using one part of the journey then?

From P&O Ferries T&Cs.

(vi) All bookings of Restricted Duration are only valid where the outward and return journeys are completed within the specified period of time, with the same vehicle and passengers and using the same operator. If you fail to travel on the outward part of your booking then the whole booking will be cancelled including the return crossing.

Ah - thank you for that, you may well have saved a few people (well me certainly) from wasting money. Should have checked the small print properly. Thanks again!

Regarding the above. Would you not book Dover to Calais return for one day. And then Calais to Dover return for the other day. Both outward completed, and therefore you wouldnt need to worry about canceling.

You reckon they'd let you book 'Calais to Dover' from England? For £1?

Amandajayne1: you can't do that

The simple answer is YES...............you book 2 returns,1 for this week and 1 for 2 weeks time......use the outbound on one and the inbound on the 2nd....simples................OK the booking is easy but in reality you will pay dearly when they realise what you have done and will charge you for 2 top price single journeys

Now i see it...........go to the french site and see if you can book calais/dover for £1.........but whatever you do if you break the contract to return same day you will be charged full price one way both ways.

This really is a pointless discussion, isn't it.

Try it.

Thanks OP - Was planning a day trip to France , but don't understand why we can't get duty free any more??? .... Surely the Calais Hypermarkets will be cheaper anyway for fags and booze etc , or do people not do these trips any more?

EU.

get your fags in belgium / tobacco alley / adinkerke - get your beer on the ferry and wine in france....most supermarkets in calais are a little more expensive than going out of town, but its not worth the extra fuel / time in my opinion.

Exactly. Doesn't seem to be any problem with this...

How can they possibly charge you when there's nothing in their conditions to allow it? And anyway just use a prepaid card... Or come back on Norfolk Line...
