That's not bad - but next year keep a look out around the times of the Caravan Shows at the NEC and Excel. Those of us who hunt out bargains try to book then. The Caravan shows are October at the NEC and February at Excel. DFDS issue a special 'show discount'. You could have booked a DFDS ferry for £19.00 each way (car or motorhome) or £29.00 for car and caravan each way - low season. High season was £29.00 each way, car, and £39.00 each way, car and caravan. No restrictions on which sailings, or which dates (in the appropriate season), and free amendments up until the 30th June.

If you want to go at peak time, ie weekend daytime, July/Aug or any bank hol week, I would book it now as prices rise as ferries fill up. If you are travelling midweek off peak times then its not so essential.

If you are happy to hold fire for a couple of weeks, then you may get a better deal. National Ferry fortnight has been brought forward this year to March 17th - March 31st, usually some decent promotions on offer.
