    Hi again Dave, i have been thinking that if you actually live in Spain the cost of joining one of the clubs (if they could help with discounts anyway) probably wouldnt be worth it,i see your in Badajoz ime near Antequera so if ever your in the area pm me and perhaps meet up for a bevvy all the best TrevandSue:thumb:

    Don't both joining one of the clubs, the savings would be minscule, if at all.

    Assuming you're talking about the 'short' Dover/Calais or Dover/Dunquerque crossings, the best bet is to have a good mooch round on the websites of the various companies and see what you can come up with, you can get a single crossing for as little as £12.50 if you time it right (can't rmember who that was with though!) - this was based on our van, a Rimor which is just over 7m long.

    It might also be an idea to have a search of the internet for voucher codes too, I did this last year at short notice (2 days before holiday we decided to go abroad due to atrocious weather here) and I found a code that gave me 10% off!

    Just a thought - do you get Tesco Clubcard vouchers? If so, you can exchange them for Eurotunnel deals vouchers, you get 4x face value on them which can make the crossing around £16.50 in vouchers!
