Thirty eight is the going rate on the Dover Strait

872aAll three short crossing ferry operators – from Dover to Calais or Dunkerque – are offering sailings for £38 in December and January.

But whereas DFDS and www.myferrylink.com charge from £38 per crossing, P&O wades in today with prices from £38 return.

That’s slightly sick making for us who have just booked with DFDS for £68 return in early December. And we didn’t even take advantage of the free amendment either…

In all three cases, the low fares will not apply on the busiest dates, before and after Christmas & New Year. DFDS says peak times are 21-22 December from Dover and 5-6 January from Calais. They charge £40 extra each way on these dates.

If you haven’t booked your Christmas crossing yet check myferrylink.com. Our test run (out 21.12, back 26.12) saw the former SeaFrance operator £30 less than the next cheapest.

As always with special offers double check against the standard fare, it might suit you better.
