I have started to look at ferry crossings.

So far the best deal I have been able to find is Dover to Dunkirk booking through http://www.ferryto.co.uk/offers/index.html which links to Aferries.

Code:
£46.60 return
   
Route                             Depart Arrive/Duration 
Dover to Dunkerque  Fri 27 Apr 12 08:00  11:00  2hr 0min  
Dunkerque to Dover  Sun 29 Apr 12 20:01  21:00  1hr 59min





It is only possible to book this ferry for £46.60 by ticking the "price compare" box on their site then selecting Dover - France, then choosing Dunkirk on the next screen.

Any other way brings the price up to £50.00 return.

I can indeed - but if we all want to travel together we'll need to discuss and agree what times we're going/returning. What times are you aiming for Pete?


Under-steer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car, over-steer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car. Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall and torque is how far you take the wall with you

That was the one I was thinking of, the timings work out pretty well both ways.

We used it in 2010.

Is there any reason why you're going so early on the Friday morning? I was thinking about getting the 10am Ferry.

We just like to cruise across France and Belgium and take in the scenery at a leisurely pace, say 200kph laugh

It's not a bad time, tough on the hangover from Ashford but beats the traffic around Brussels and gives time for the Friday night welcome piss up party laugh

Come on, join us cool

Ah so some of you are stopping over in Ashford close to the ferry. Makes more sense now. I'm going to set off from London on the Friday morning straight there and don't fancy getting up that early smile

I may have to bite the bullet and eat a large slice of humble pie and join the ferry goers, at £39 return I'll save the cost of a grand parade versus eurotunnel.

Are these ferries owned/managed by Italian groups, by any chance? Recent events suggest you could end up anywhere, even upside down...

If any of you are using the M25 beware of the roadworks around the Essex area, i moved freely through them at 3 am yesterday morning ,but peak time will be mayem.
They will still be there in April i imagine.

And this is one of the reasons we go down Thursday night to Ashford, we're then just 30 mins away - last year going through the roadworks on the M1 and M25 would have seen us miss the Eurotunnel
