    I have just made an enquiry into the ferry costs for the Portsmouth to Santander and the maximum length permitted was 6.5 mtrs, and 2.99 high, well we are 7mtrs long and 3.1 high so how do others get a price or do we have to go freight?

    Just had a look on the Brittany Ferries web site, they accommodate vehicles up to 9 metres in length and 4 metres in height. Did you select the motorhome/mini bus option.
