Too many variables in your question - length / height / time of travel - school holidays or other

Try a few dates in their 'booking system' to get an idea

We paid from memory about £440 Portsmouth to Santander , one way, in May 2019.
We were luckily given a discount code from a kind Funster.
6.9m low profile.
We are booked on the boat with all decks covered, ie. no being left out in the salt and cold , sorry can't remember the name of the vessel as I write.
Note this is the expensive way , not the Brittany Ferries no frills boat.

Frequent traveller on the tunnel is £46 +12 suppliment for Motorhome = £58 each way but of course you have to purchase a min of 10 singles = £460. Even if you don’t use them all you’ll save but you need to take account of extra fuel used and tolls if you use them(y)(y)

Booked on the Cap Finistere ( the expensive ferry). Portsmouth to Bilbao Wednesday 8th May. We are 7m x 3m, 2 berth outside cabin one way ticket. Cost £513 with a funsters 10% discount. From memory you can save around £100 if you go on the no frills ferry, but didn’t want to take the chance that the van would possibly be outside and subject to the elements. Have a play around with dates, routes etc on their web site.

You could still be outside on Cap Finistere, we were. No way to get moved. We were absolutely salt encrusted when we arrived. It’s a bit random, you just keep going until the vehicle in front stops and that’s where you stay.
It’s the Pont Aven where all are inside.

Came back on the cheap ferry a couple of weeks ago (only one with space), yes some MHs were on the open deck.

I had more salt from the Spanish roads on the way out..........

............it washes off !!

I loved the cheap ferry, apart from some on the open deck the quality and service was just as good as the rest and I would happily book it again - apart from the restaurant (which I don't use except for breakfast - full English 2 euros if a Club member on the 'cruise') there's little different.

Would only go through France to Spain if I couldn't get on a ferry !!

We've been on both ferry's when using traveling by car. Think the Cap Finistere is a little nicer. But and its purely a personal thing we like the Sunday crossing the one that takes 2 nights. We just look at it as part of the holiday.
Also didn't know about the 10% discount for members of this site does that go for cars as well?

Its the discount a Brittany Ferries member of Club Voyage can pass on to you via a code. BUSBY.

I'm booked out on the Cap Finistere at the end of the month for the same reason

I like driving down to Portsmouth Sunday afternoon and arriving Bilbao early Tuesday, fresh to drive onward

The only downside is that unless you can sunbathe you see nothing (but the sea!)

A kettle, tea, coffee, milk and a good book for the cabin are essential !!

If the 'Economique' fitted in with my plans I'd take it, it's really not much different
