    just looked on the DFDS website for ferry bookings.

    i'm sure when it was norfolk line the standard length was 7mtrs and £15 per mtr surcharge if over this.

    now, its 8mtrs standard length and £30 per meter surcharge :Eeek:

    did this happen in the change to DFDS or did norfolk increase it ?

    Ask at the show - they are going to be there as Norfolk Line, according to the Senior Partner

    To my knowledge it was always 8 mtr,I always booked that length when traveling without the toad.
    Cars and small campers upto 5 mtr go at the car price.

    its 8mtrs and £15 per mtr for each crossing so for a return journey it makes it £30 a mtr, plus a fuel surcharge of £12 per vehicle per return journey which everyone pays

    I have accidently been booking our camper as a car/small camper and not paying any extras for the past 3 years. No one ever queried it!
