    I’ve always driven through France to get to Spain and Portugal during January & February but this year we are trying the ferry. If it is a success I will look at joining their Club Voyage scheme; and whilst I’m posting does the Club Voyage scheme make financial sense? Do you always get 30% discount or is it invariably less? Does it make sense if you only do a maximum of two trips a year?

    You get 30% off the cost of the ferry tickets and something off meals as well if you spend more than a certain amount, can't remember the exact details. Nothing off the cost of a cabin unfortunately.

    It makes sense if you only do one trip a year and you should save a small amount even in the first year, when there is a joining fee.

    The terms and conditions are on the BF website if you want to look at the details.

    we only ever book the seats at 10 quid a crossing . but thats on the pont aven using plymouth -santander.
    makes a big saving on booking cabins . one night if you get the right crossing and in spain 20hrs on.
    you do sometimes have to spend a few moments playing on their site to get the cheaper crossings . school holidays etc does put the price up.
    so sometimes what to many can be inconveniant crossings do work out good for others .

    There are two clubs.
    One for Spain and one for France.
    You get 30% discount as a member if you go to the place where you are a member.
    30% discount to Spain if you are a Spain member (but 10% if you are going to France)
    30% discount to France if you are a France member (but 10% to Spain)

    it makes sense.

    You get Breakfast allowance and you can pre-book some restaurant sailings

    Yes, we have some commodore cabins booked through to next November, 12 sailings in total. My Favourites are the Balcony cabins on Pont Aven. But we also have 8007 and 7005 booked on Cap Finistere on most of this trips.

    Just Remember, you do not get any discount on cabins. We all pay the same.

    Also, remember!.

    Pre-Book Cap Finistere Restaurant before you sale restaurant.bookings@brittanyferries.com Only available to book on certain sailings. If you book and change your mind, just don't turn up. They will give your table away after 15 mins.

    The booking gets added to your ticket. I say this because queuing up to book a table is an arse in the world of a task. If your not in a talkative mood and people in the que start asking you for or worse still, telling you their life story.........
