By Ferry

Which crossing is best for you?

Our holiday prices include a fully flexible Dover-Calais ferry crossing, or you can upgrade to other routes to save on driving time and petrol. See the table below or call our Customer Service team on 01825 748318 (9am-5pm, Monday to Friday).

For advice on which route to pick, our experienced Customer Service team are happy to advise. As our holidays run Monday-Monday, all crossings shown in our brochure are either Sunday or Monday sailings although travel can be arranged on any day (additional supplements may apply).

Coming from Ireland?

As shown on the map above, we can offer landbridge crossings from Belfast, Dublin and Rosslare with Stena, as well as direct crossings with Stena, Brittany Ferries and Irish Ferries. Landbridge ferries are heavily subsidised, and in low season many are even free! Details of all ferries from Ireland can be found here.
