In response to the announcement that a 24 hour national public sector strike across Belgium is planned for this weekend 

Date published: 27 January 2012

DFDS Seaways (formerly Norfolkline) Dover – France ferries has space currently available for additional car passengers looking to travel to and from the UK this coming Sunday and Monday (29 and 30 January).

All passengers looking to avoid the strike action threatening the entire Belgium rail network, which will also affect Eurostar services to and from Brussels, are advised to call DFDS Seaways as soon as possible to secure a crossing this Sunday and Monday to travel with their car.

DFDS Seaways sails between Dover and Dunkirk, which is situated in the North of France, with easy access from the main European arterial roads. The Port of Dunkirk is only 97 miles from Brussels, and is an ideal departure point from France and the Continent.

Please note that DFDS Seaways does not carry foot passengers on its Dover - Dunkirk route.
