Award winning ferry operator, DFDS, has launched an offer with a 30% discount on mid-week sailings on its Dover-Dunkirk service. 

This means that you can travel to France in your car with up to nine passengers from just £28 per crossing (one way). This offer is valid for single or return sailings between Monday and Thursday from 22nd April until 15th July, subject to availability.

Our port in Dunkirk is located 25 miles north of Calais, meaning it is the ideal starting point for a break in France's beautiful northern coast or the historic cities of Lille or Arras. Or you can travel to beautiful Bruges where you will find a delicious array of beer, chocolate and Flemish delights on offer. 

Our fleet of three modern ships on the Dover-Dunkirk route can transport you to northern France in just two hours. Whilst onboard, you can enjoy a delicious hot meal or choose from a range of hot and cold snacks in one of the cafes or bars, shop for holiday essentials and luxuries, or sit back and relax while the children play in the dedicated children's area. There is something for everyone on DFDS Seaway's ferries, meaning your holiday starts as soon as you board. 

DFDS sails up to 24 times a day between Dover and Dunkirk, providing passengers with flexible crossing times, a relaxing travel experience and convenient travel options.
