How do I get the cheapest price?

There are a number of ways to get the best price on your ferry tickets.

Please see some helpful hints below.

  • Book direct!  All our best fares can only be booked direct through
  • Fill up the car with the family as our prices include a car and up to 9 passengers, if you're travelling on the Dover-Calais route!
  • Our different ticket types suit all budgets and needs, however our saver ticket offers the best value as long as you can travel as booked. However, if you don't want to incur extra charges for changing your sailing, our flexi ticket may be the best value for you.
  • The best fares can be found by travelling at off peak times which are typically during the week, outside school holidays and night crossings.
  • If you're a regular traveller, take a look at our season tickets, they offer the best prices for people travelling more than 3 times a year
  • Head over to our offers pages to see if we have any deals on for the dates you'd like to travel.
  • And finally, book as far in advance as you can! The further in advance you book the more likely you are to save on the price of your ticket!
