DFDS Seaways push the boat out with 10% savings to celebrate acquisition 


To celebrate the creation of the 'Bigger and Better' DFDS Seaways, which now incorporates all Norfolkline routes, travellers can save up to 12% by mixing different outgoing and inbound routes across Europe. These combination routes are perfect for a touring holiday taking in the delights of several European countries. Return crossings start from £158 for a car plus two passengers. There are also 2 for 1 offers on Mini Cruise breaks to Amsterdam and Esbjerg, starting at £85 for 2 people.

Unlike other ways of travelling, cruising to your holiday destination is a great way to relax, take in the fresh sea air, keep the kids entertained and enjoy some great food – all before you’ve even arrived. And by taking your car you can take everything you want with you – all the luggage you need and even your pets for a small extra charge.
