For the first time ever our Motorhome was measured before we were allowed to board the ferry. We arrived at Portsmouth to board the Brittany Ferries service to Santander yesterday. We drove up to the kiosk and handed over our ticket and passports to the young lady in the kiosk. She checked our details on her computer and then came out of the kiosk and proceeded to measure our Motorhome with a surveyors wheel. All was ok and we were allowed to board the ferry. Whilst on board we heard of motor homers and Caravanners being charged a supplement of £60 as their vehicles were longer than that stated on their booking form, some by a matter of only 7 or 8 inches, they were not allowed to board until the supplement had been paid. I am not sure if this is to become a regular practice but best be aware in case it is. Brisey.
