    To reiterate my last post they seem to be a lot cheaper this year compared to last and with a trailer this time as well. Or they are for me anyway, i paid £1285 last year with no trailer and this year i paid £870 for similar dates of departure and return with a 4m trailer added (yet to buy). That's a lot of saving :). No idea why to be honest as i thought it would be more but booked anyway befre they change it. I also double checked the details as well and they are correct and this includes £80 cabin each way :)

    Yes they look to be cheaper for me as well. I was expecting the £ price to be at least 10% higher because of the exchange rate, but that assumes the rates are based on Euros, maybe its £

    There have been some tweeking around the edges.
    The service from Plymouth isn't as straightforward in the Winter and I will have difficulty in getting back to my 'Homeport' in the winter.
    The price Plymouth-Roscoff at around the end of the year, and early next year,(not just Christmas) is a bit strong at £235 for me, her and the 'van.

    very strange as this year i am away for 2 days longer and £400 cheaper with the addition of a trailer :)

    Perhaps they realised it was too cheap and started to put the prices up :)

    mine just nicely fits in as a car and caravan . i dont have a cabin and i,m a club member .
    i leave 5 days later and come back 6 days later , only as the timetable as changed .
    be nice if they knocked 400 off mine i would only have to pay24.60 then .
    i,m lucky i,m only 10 mtrs length and they allow 11mtrs for car and caravan .
    it gets measured every year going and coming back. as it does look bigger .

    Theres a couple of strange arrivals this winter ie Bilbao to Plymouth 2/3February (next one 29th March).
    I might just be on that one.
    Saves the 180 mile slog back from Portsmouth.

    having done the portsmouth crossing a few times .i much prefer the plymouth one . certainly the pont aven makes it real smooth and like you plymouth just up the road .
    mind i also dont mind not having a cabin ,saves a few more shillings . plus its about 190 mls for me. instead of just 30.
