Ferry booked

Post by frencheric69 » Wed Apr 01, 2015 9:14 pm

Well that's it, ferry booked :dance: :dance: :dance:
Me and hairy off to sunny France on 9th July for 8 days. Going to try a different crossing this time, Newhaven/ Dieppe. Doing the evening crossing that gets us into France at 2230, so we're going to do a night ride to get as far south as we can to leave more time for :zzzzzz: and :drunk: and :sunhot:

If anyone else is at a loose end then you're more than welcome to join us........
My other ride is a doubledecker bus

Eric, Newhaven to Dieppe is a good option now that Brittany Ferries have raised their prices for bikes so much over the years!! Enjoy, well jealous :mrgreen:

I've used the crossing before but only in the lorry. Got the return trip for £70, which is a lot les than any of the other south coast crossings

:shock: Yeah me and Lou were going to go over for my birthday week at the beginning of may, wanted to go Portsmouth Caen but to expensive, going Dover-Dunkirk now instead, £32.00 each way as apposed to the cauliflower farmers boat at £210 return.

Four years ago we went Plymouth-Santander then came home Caen-Portsmouth that was £178.00 per couple, this year its getting on for £380.00, crazy.... Can get 16.5 meters across for £350 quid...

Many moons ago I did continental to western Europe. I have seen some of you post's and deducted that you work for mmmm :scratch: Armoric maybe??
