    Anybody taken this route with a Motorhome would appreciate any feedback as we wish to miss out on Calais whilst making our way to Italy at the end of August.

    I've been looking at this , although it will take a lot to get us off the tunnel, surely hull is a better run for us in the middle than that blasted m1 m25 and stack(y)

    We've used it several times. It's really good but expensive. We always have dinner on the boat and enjoy it. It's a massive buffet. Not using it this year because we're taking the dogs but would definitely recommend it.

    We have used it and agree with everything that Mags52 says. Its a really good service, especially if your going east towards Germany.

    Lucky bugger, we booked for mid August and paid £500 with Caravan Club and only three nights camping cheques this time.

    Who did you book through Andy.

    I will add we usually pay around £300 to £325 and get 7 nights camping thrown in.

    @Sweet Chariot the best deals for motorhomes or caravans are at the weekend when not so much freight travelling so travel Saturday or Sunday crossing, leaves about 6:30pm and arrives about 9:30am, meal on board relax in the bar shower/bed or bed/shower breakfast and then off you go driving, the exit from the Zeebrugge port is very straight forward.

    I booked directly with P&O online. I have a friend who offered me friends & family but when I enquired on the day it was slightly dearer than online. Using the Caravan Club website on the same day it was £399.50

    My crossing is Sat 19th Sept return Sat 3rd Oct

    As I'm heading for cologne before doing the Mosel again the mileage saving covers the higher price
    I paid £248 Dover Dunkirk early this year

    The meal breakfast and outside cabin is CONSIDERABLY more expensive. So much so that we would not consider it unfortunately.

    Only £10 to upgrade to 4 berth outside, but yes the food is expensive but after the evening buffet we can face breakfast.

    I just tried that but it won't remove the £98 for the standard included room, it just adds £108 to the bill?

    I've witnessed people coming drastically unstuck with bending the truth.

    The cabin choices are Extras not upgrades. Like suppose you have a 6 berth van? A 2 berth inside is all that is included

    Also booked HtoZ with P&O for September. £201 out, £164 back. Worth every penny. Hull is a couple of hours from home and Zeebrugge is only an hour from Dunkirk, unlike Dover which is seven hours from us, on a good day!
