speedferries will take motorhomes if they are less than 7m long, 2.9m high and 2m wide. However, their prices for some crossings have gone up a lot since jan. I paid 138 in January and looked again and the cost was over 200 for the same timings. (that was for a high vehicle with a trailer)

Transmanche ferries for me if you're looking to land a bit further south, although as mentioned they are in the process of being taken over so i don't know what happening at the mo.

We usually book direct with the operator but this year we used aferry cos it was the cheapest for the hull/zeebrugge crossing.

The obvious cheap way to cross the channel is to shop at Tesco.  The Tesco clubcard points count towards the ferry charge. eg. Ferry crossing 100 - you need 25 Tesco points.  We're travelling Hull - Zeebrugge return with caravan and cabin for not a lot (had to put a bit towards the cost as didn't have quite enough for full crossing)
Pennine plodder, this seems like good value for money, I have 17.50 in tesco clubcard vouchers, can you offer me any advice please, I have never heard of using this!! I want to cross for 2 weeks in July and August, roughly how much do you think this will equate to, if you know!! or will i be better calling the ferry company, can you use then with Norfolk line, I would prefer to dock at st.malo to get me closer, is there a cheaper way!! Many Thanks

We booked a whila back but used LD lines and when I booked they were the cheapest around.  As I had never heard of them I asked around on this site and they got quite a few good recommendations!

Good luck

Hi Nicolajane1,

 

If I could answer for PenninePlodder.

Your 17.50 worth of Tesco vouchers equates to 70 of Tesco Tokens which is the value you can use towards the cost of a ferry.

At the moment you can only use the tokens on specific routes. I'm afraid Norfolk Lines isnt one of them(unless someone knows different)

At the moment only P&O and Eurotunnel accept the tokens for crossing on or under the channel. According to the Tesco website P&O will only accept tokens for the Portsmouth Bilbao route BUT THAT IS INCOORECT.

They will accept them for the Dover Calais route.

You have to convert your vouchers into tokens using the Tesco site and then ring up P&O and book you ferry, get the booking ref, write that on the tokens and send them off to P&O. Sounds complicated but it isnt.

Its the same with Eurotunnel.

Before you book you may find that even allowing for the fact that you are saving 70 it may not be cheaper (or not much) by using this method.

It may pay you to carry on saving the vouchers until you have sufficient to pay for the whole of your crossing (next year perhaps).

Oh and by the way. If you do want to ring up P&O use 01304 864003. Its cheaper than the 0870 quoted in the Tesco website.
