    Im looking to book a Dover to Calias ferry for April next year and the cheapest is My Ferries at £110 return for a 7.1 metre motorhome. DFDS through the Caravan Club is £145. Has anyone used My Ferries. Any feedback would be welcome.

    Used them this September. Just as good as P&O in my opinion.

    Dover to Calais is a 50 minute crossing I would have thought price would be the main factor in your selection.
    P&O maybe the largest player in Dover but that does not necessarily mean it's the best.
    As far as I know all the ferries from Dover have a shop, snack food, hot food, a bar, refreshments and a lounge to relax for your short stay aboard.

    Used MyFerry Link for a club visit to the UK (Calais - Dover return) in September and they were helpful with the booking process and during the 90 minute crossing. As you probably know, they use the original large ferries from Sea France, hired from Eurotunnel.

    Try Eurotunnel, may not be the cheapest but it aint half fast and hassle free. No extra charge for longer MH's. If you travel several times a year think about ET's frequent traveller deal, which you can share with one other named person. Or use your Tesco vouchers cheaper still!!

    I just missed that offer meant to book last week at £88.20, eventually got around to doing it a couple of days ago and i had to £109 :( but still a good price for July/August. :)

    Thanks for all your advice. As we are heading to the Loire area I will go with My Ferries from Dover to Calais.
