Up to 50% discount available on crossings between Dover and France

Award winning ferry operator, DFDS Seaways, has launched a trio of discounts for passengers to choose from, with discounts of up to 50% available on both the Dover-Dunkirk and Dover-Calais crossings.

You can choose from the following discounts, which must be booked by 21 April, for travel between 7 April and 30 June 2014:

  • 50% off sailings in both directions between 02:00 and 04:00
  • 20% off sailings in both directions between 22:00 and 01.30
  • 10% off all remaining sailings in both directions

Whether you’re looking to travel to Northern Europe by car with your family or friends or hit the open roads on your motorcycle, crossing the Channel with DFDS Seaways is the perfect way to start your journey.

Max Foster, passenger director at DFDS Seaways, comments: “We already offer passengers a choice of ferry routes from Dover to both Dunkirk and Calais and now we’re offering even more choice by introducing our new range of discounts - so you can choose what works best for your holiday! If you like to maximise your time away, take advantage of our 50% off discount and travel through the night to enjoy quieter roads, however if you’re looking for a more leisurely start to your trip, travel during the day and save 10% off crossing prices.”

DFDS Seaways operates up to 44 sailings per day between Dover and France, offering passengers a choice of departure times and flexibility. Passengers can relax onboard during the short crossing and grab a bite to eat at one of the restaurants or cafes, pick up last minute travel essentials from the onboard shop, let the kids play in the dedicated children’s areas or explore the ship’s deck and take in the sea air.
