Ferry Good Offers for European Travel this May

Date published: 12 May 2011

DFDS Seaways offers £10 off return tickets during this year’s National Ferry Fortnight

To celebrate the third annual National Ferry Fortnight, DFDS Seaways (formerly Norfolkline) is offering £10 off return tickets for a car and up to four people on its Dover – France route.

The offer is available for people booking return tickets during National Ferry Fortnight, which runs from 14th - 28th May, and is valid for travel between 14th May until 15th December 2011* (terms and conditions apply).

Chris Newey, Director of Passenger Services (English Channel route)Chris Newey, Director of Passenger Services, English Channel route at DFDS Seaways commented:

National Ferry Fortnight provides the perfect opportunity for people to discover the modern ferry experience, which we believe is the perfect antidote for those who have become disillusioned with so-called low cost air travel.

Ferry travel is not only affordable, it is also relaxing and you can take as much luggage as you can fit into your vehicle! We find that most people who use our ferries become real advocates of our fleet of well-designed, modern ferries. There is plenty of space, as well as fantastic facilities onboard for children and adults to enjoy, making it the perfect start to any holiday or short break in Europe.


Another advantage of ferry travel is the flexibility if affords passengers, as it is normally possible to travel on an earlier or later crossing if passengers arrive at the port ahead or behind their intended schedule.

DFDS Seaways sails from Dover – Dunkirk every two hours, seven days a week. Crossings take just two hours, and tickets start from as little as £25 each way for a car and up to four people.

As the only ferry operator sailing between Dover and Dunkirk, car passengers on DFDS Seaways are able to benefit from easy disembarkation and little of the congestion associated with sailing into Calais (which is just 20 minutes away). Dunkirk also provides the perfect entry point to France and the rest of Europe, with good links to major arterial roads, making onward travel easy.
