We have never done it before, but want to spend a few weeks mooching around Brittany via the Plymouth to Roscoff ferry this July. I have got prices from Brittany Ferries themselves and the Caravan Club, and although I tried to get a quote from the Camping and Caravaning Club as well I dont have a Masters Degree in computing that would allow me to use their website.

Question is, what is the best place to actually book the ferry? The two prices I got were similar although CC were the most expensive when I expected them to be cheaper, but never having done this before for a motorhome should I be getting quotes elsewhere as well? Should I wait until the last minute in the hope of a cheaper price or does it not work that way? Any help would be most appreciated thanks.

difficult . normally booking early very early can get a good price . yet have had it when i ring i,m told if you can get here today we will do a deal.
i,m lucky only live less than an hour from plymouth .
but sometimes its gone up .
i say if you can just spend time going through their booking site . prices do change from one day to the next . mondays can be a good day to get away from uk.
depends how flexible your holiday dates are .

If it's only a few bob difference always book with the actual travel company.

That way you have some guarantee if something goes wrong.


Same as any purchase in fact. Cut out any middle man

ferry out you need a seat or cabin . on way back you dont need anything as its a day crossing .

nice one . you do have to shop a round a bit .
hope your troubles are sorted .
brittany are quite good at changing times etc .
they used to give a 20 quid discount if you booked a return . then only charged 5quid if you changed the return . they got wise to that one .
last winter i had booked kennel for my dog that had to be put down just before we left . they returned the kennel fee at the port . i left the return kennel booked in case i got a dog while away . but didnt . they also returned the fee at santander . very good of them i thought .
i always book through brittany ferries . usually in person at the port . sometimes it helps to get a discount . i,m lucky i do visit plymouth often . so dropping in isnt a problem .
