    Off to France next June and Spain next Sept, if I book the ferry now I can get both holidays for £48.00 each crossing (£96.00 return).
    Is it likely to stay the same price if I book now, cheaper, dearer? Not sure it would become cheaper really.
    Any experience of booking so far ahead please. (y)

    If you do not and end up in Spain, it will be a case of "alas poor @Yorick, for I knew him well"

    Sorry, someone had to say it.....:getmecoat:

    That's the cheapest I've ever seen ! How long is your MH ? We booked once paid and when arrived at the port had to pay more as the length of the van was wrong!!

    It sounds like a very good price, especially for weekend crossings - if it were me I'd book it now.

    Book it and review the cost of adding a bit of flexibility. Also consider your travel insurance as if you cant make it you might be able to make a claim, although your excess will probably be greater than the costs.
    Bon Voyage

    I read somewhere that they review the cookies on your computer and as you show more interest they move the price up, cunning whotsits. You can get around it by using a different machine to book, it would be interesting to see the price if you enquire again using a different machine and a hooky reg number so the two enquiries don't match.

    I never go back to look, whenever I buy anything after doing some research, that is what it costs, end of.
    I have in the past kept looking and found I could have bought this or bought that cheaper and it really pi**es me off, so I stopped doing it.:LOL::LOL:
