Get the ferry from Hull Bill, it's close enough for you. We did it last year and drove down through France and into Spain and would do the same again.

I suspect ferry prices will be higher over the Christmas period. If you have the time travel earlier, the bairn could always fly and join you during the school holidays, British Airways are good with unaccompanied children. I used them many times when living in Kuwait, but again expect prices of tickets to be higher over Christmas.

Hull to Zeebrugge is still around £500 plus meals.

That buys a lot of diesel even after deducting the cost of dover/calais crossing.

Bill if I were you, I'd go on a plane.
Book into all inclusive as you said. Cheaper.
Fair enough , noisier, and you'll have to put up with other folk annoying the pants off you on the way there.
But your a sociable couple and will enjoy when your there.
Plus , with the problems you've had with your van in the past, at least you know you'll get there! What ever you decide. Have a nice time.

We usually do the Zeebrugge crossing and with 7 nights camping cheques it's about £300, just been to Dusseldorf and there were no deals on the Zeebrugge crossing but got Rotterdam crossing for about £400 with camping cheques both from Hull of course. Got to be £100 to £150 in diesel return trip To any port on the South coast which makes the a ferry about £100 return or better if you can get it around £300, and save a days driving each way. Ferry deals booked with the caravan club.

You don't have to buy a meal on the ferry as plenty of people take on butty's.

Somebody mentioned that they have a microwave on board so can you take your own ready meals to heat up in that ?
