    Recently I had to return home a few days early from my european trip I arrived at the port of Dunkirk and enquired if there were spaces on the next ferry. Yes came the reply but you have to purchase a new ticket. I explained that I had a valid ticket for a few days later but was informed that it was only valid on the ferry booked. Have any other motor homers been faced with the same problem? I was not amused surely this is not customer friendly or is it a way of extracting more money!!!

    Wherever we park
    At the port they will always try and make you pay again, they wanted 110 euros off us to change the ferry because we arrived a day early, the original fare was only £79.Needless to say we waited until the next day.
    However as stated if you ring DFDS in England they will only charge you administration fee,last time I altrered the date it cost me £20.
