Families looking for a spring getaway can take their kids to France or Spain for free with Brittany Ferries’ latest deal.
What’s the deal exactly?
Brittany Ferries is offering free travel each way for up to two children up to the age of 15, as long as they travel in the same vehicle as at least one parent. A return child fare normally costs £50.
The firm operates journeys to and from Plymouth, Poole and Portsmouth in England to several European destinations. These are Caen, Cherbourg, Le Havre, Roscoff and St Malo in France, as well as Bilbao and Santander in Spain.
Why should I care?
Spring is now here and many people are looking to take advantage of the good weather. Family breaks can be an expensive business and this deal means a family of four can save up to £100 in ferry fares. There is a choice of routes from the UK to both Spain and France, with several departures each day.
What’s the catch?
You must book before midnight on 18 April 2017 and the journeys must be made before 5 June 2017. There are a few date restrictions though: UK to France sailings on 27 and 28 May and France to UK sailings on 2, 3 and 4 June are not included.
The deal is only available for up to two children, with additional children traveling for £25 each way. The family must travel by car - foot passengers are not permitted.
This offer also doesn’t include overnight ferries to France.
What other options do I have?
Flights can be a quicker and cheaper option than the ferry, but you’ll have to leave your car behind.
If you want to travel by sea, DFDS, P&O Ferries and Stena Lines are some other major ferry companies offering travel from the UK to Europe. Check your travel dates with these companies before booking with Brittany to ensure you couldn’t get a cheaper deal elsewhere.
