    Eurotunnel or ferry

    Hi
    any one have any deals on crossing to france, one way or return
    any crossing way would be fine (ferry, eurotunnel...) as long as its cheap

    planning to travel in july
    cheapest i'm getting (for going on 5th july and back on 19th) is around £120
    i'm sure we can do better then that

    thanks

    I guess you wanting to take your car,it's usually cheaper to go on ferry than Eurotunnel.

    Speedferries and norfolk line are usually the cheapest.

    but tunnel is sooo much nicer! cost me just over £100 return.

    norfolkline was a silly price well worth lookng at!

    Just pray the sea's not rough if you use Speedferries! Made me wish I'd paid the extra for Eurotunnel when I came back a couple of years ago. Kids refuse to go any way other than by tunnel now. :x

    In July, not likely. Not quite sure what you mean though, ferries in general maybe, but "speed one" is a catamaran, very quick and stable. Been on 3 times now, so 6 trips, but on one they let me down due to boat failure. Cheap and cheerful but very quick and gets you to boulogne and not calais which helps.

    I like the tunnel but it's always so expensive.

    We went to Dunkirk last week with Norfolkline. Good boat and decent crossing but the port is rubbish to get out of, IMO.

    If we had sailed at 2am we could have taken 5 passengers and the car for £20 and that was a bank holiday weekend.

    problem is that day return/weekend breaks is cheap

    i need to go for 2 weeks

    if i buy single tickets, its ridiculously priced
    and i have a 2month, so can't travel at wierd times, have to keep it decent so that she is not disturbed too much

    geez i miss them days when u could get vouchers for a free crossing

    Well Norfolk Line will com it at around £100 depending on exactly what time you want to travel.

    Have a look at [url]www.poferries.com[/url], depending on times best was £80!

    Well I would add that Norfolk Line will do it for about £50 at silly times of the day, I don't imagine P&O can come close in costs for similar times of the day in my exp.

    Usually go to France once every couple of months and [url]www.poferries[/url] usually win:) Eurotunnel are great just for overnight trips, which I done last week::)

    Worst crossing I've ever suffered was in July. Doesn't take much wind to make the Straits Of Dover rough. Problem with the catamaran (Speed One) was the roll on it in rough seas and that was in late August. It depends how much more you're paying for Eurotunnel. We used Clubcard vouchers last year and again for this summer. Has cost about £35 worth of vouchers each time for daytime weekend crossings in August.

    True, I cant do the wind on the ferries either and it can happen at any time...

    I only been across once by Ferry and was ok,did it for the kids really as they wanted to go across the sea.
    My Mum was like you better watch them etc,cos I did take them on deck.

    I found this lot quite reasonable aferry.to/

    On those dates the tunnel is from £98 but for resonable times £154 do it direct its cheaper at [url]www.eurotunnel.com[/url]

    p&o ferries are doing a promotion for 35€ / crossing
    so the ticket came to me for 70€ at reasonable times

    thanks
