​Take a short break to Europe with DFDS from only £59

- Three and five day short break ferry crossings from just £59 per car.

Award winning ferry operator, DFDS, has extended its short break offer on its Dover-Dunkirk route to include a five day return for a car and up to nine passengers for only £59. This offer is in addition to the current three day short break return offer of £59 on its Dover-Dunkirk and Dover-Calais services. These offers are valid on bookings made before 31 May 2015 for travel until 30 June 2015, subject to availability and selected exclusion dates*.

France is the most popular holiday destination in the world, and with its great cities, beautiful countryside and famed cuisine, it’s no surprise. With short break offers on our Dover-France routes, now is a great time to explore the beautiful countryside of Normandy and northern France, experience the rugged coastline or lose yourself in the wonderful city streets of Lille or Paris, the most romantic city in the world.

If you want to explore further afield, you can head to the southern coast for beautiful golden beaches and glamorous resorts, or visit neighbouring countries such as Belgium or Holland for a different cultural and culinary experience.

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. You can even travel to beautiful Bruges where you will find a delicious array of beer, chocolate and Flemish delights on offer.

If you’re planning a break to central France, or the famous beach resorts of Nord-pas-de-Calais, then our Calais port is a convenient place to start your journey. With motorway access linking you to major cities and tourist destinations throughout France, you can be in Paris in under three hours and Amiens in just 90 minutes. 

To redeem the three day offer use the discount code E3DAY or E5DAY for the five day offer at the point of purchase.
Our short sailings from Dover to Calais and Dunkirk take just 90 minutes and two hours respectively, but there are still plenty of facilities onboard to keep you entertained.

During your sailing with DFDS, you can enjoy a meal or snack in one of the onboard cafés or restaurants, shop for holiday essentials and luxuries, or relax as the children play in the dedicated children’s area, meaning your holiday starts as soon as you board.

DFDS sails up to 44 times a day between Dover and France, providing passengers with flexible crossing times, a relaxing travel experience and convenient travel options.
