Save money on your ferry travel

Ferry travel is an increasingly popular method of travel, and there are some simple ways you can save money: the key is flexibility.

Be An Early Bird!

Sailing at the most convenient times can mean paying more, so use our booking engine to compare prices between day and night, and check to see if it's cheaper to travel mid-week rather than at the weekends. School holidays are usually more expensive as well as being more crowded, so try to avoid these peak times where possible.

Be Adventurous!

Dover to Calais may be one of the most popular routes in Europe, but depending on your destination, it may be cheaper for you to try an alternative port such as Dunkirk or St Malo if you're travelling from the South of England, or perhaps Newcastle to Amsterdam if you are setting off from the North. By looking at alternative ports you could end up saving yourself both petrol money and time.

Be Quick!

The best ferry prices are usually available to the people who book in advance. Timetables are often open several months or even a year prior to departure, so if you are able to plan ahead you will save money and enjoy the peace of mind from knowing you are all booked and ready to travel.
