• Follow us on social media – You can follow DFDS Seaways on Facebook and Twitter, where we regularly run flash discounts and competitions. Many of these limited-time lightning deals may not make it to the website, so follow us now to ensure you don’t miss out.
• Avoid peak times – If you can travel at night, on a weekday or during the afternoon you’re more likely to find a lower fare. Weekends, mornings and school holidays tend to be in higher demand. Take a look at our cheap fare finder for more information.
• Mix & Match – If you want to get more out of your trip to France, why not mix and match your arrival and departure ports? If you take the Dover ferry into Calais, you’re welcome to return via Dunkirk and vice versa. This means you can see more of the country without the time and expense of doubling back on yourself.
