Discover the open roads of Europe by Bike this Summer for just £39 return

Motorcyclists can experience the joy of the open roads of Europe this summer using the DFDS Seaways Dover-Dunkirk route, with great fares that start at just £39 return for a motorcycle, £49 with a sidecar and £59 for a motorcycle and trailer.

Dunkirk is a short two-hour crossing from the port of Dover and offers a fantastic entry point into France for riders looking to explore France, Belgium, Germany or beyond. The special fares are available immediately for booking and travel until 29 September.

Motorcyclists can experience the freedom of the quieter European roads and make their way through the kaleidoscope of diverse and beautiful scenery that is the backdrop to the principal routes through Europe. Faced with the choice of going off the beaten track or sticking to the motorways, motorcyclists are advised to plan their route to ensure enough time between stops to be able to enjoy some of the cultural and culinary delights on offer along the way.

Whilst onboard one of DFDS Seaways’ fleet of modern ferries, riders can enjoy a variety of hot and cold refreshments from the onboard cafes and restaurants, as well as shop for any holiday essentials. For a truly relaxing adult-only onboard experience, passengers have the option to upgrade to the first class lounge. From £12 per person, passengers can enjoy priority boarding and disembarkation, two relaxing lounge areas, complimentary hot and cold drinks, as well as daily newspapers.

DFDS Seaways sails up to 24 times a day between Dover and Dunkirk, providing passengers with flexible crossing times, a luxury on-board travel experience and convenient travel options.
