Sea France resuce plan rejected
BBC NEWS | England | Kent | SeaFrance rescue plan is rejected
That's bad news, they always seem to come up with the best price for me. Maybe its my fault they are going under I haven't booked yet, I normally have by now.
Me neither and I heard Bryan had negotiated a crippling crossing rate for his & Suzy's summer jauntoh:
Yes he has
Cheeky bu**ers booked on as my toadoh:
I've just been on line started looking for ferry crossings for this summers trip to Europe only got a quote from Brittany so far bit expensive I thought :Sad: Still not as expensive as Sea France if they go bust what chance customers will get any money back eh!!!!
Thats exactly why I pay for every thing these days with the good ol trusty credit card Rory:thumb:
Hmmm, friends of ours had just bought the '10 trips' deal when they announced they were going bust - and didn't pay with credit card - expensive lesson!!!oh:
I take it you don't have a lot to say about this thread then, Bryan?
Bloomin heck !
I normally use Norfolk Line cos they are pretty much 20% cheaper usually, but Sunday had a problem with the N L web site..
Sea France have always been 2nd best on price so went on there .. I was about to book but it was £55.00 dearer so decided to give N L one more go..
mailed em with the issue they rang me back in 10 minutes and I booked with them.
Bloomin glad I did now !
...and I made doubly sure that I was covered by paying on GEO's credit card too :thumb:
I just hope they can come up with another business plan that will be acceptable to the parent company, as we have a booking for later in the year.
Now I know why I never book a ferry until the last minute!! That's my excuse anyway!
Well theres good news in the haganap house hold at last.
We have a ferry booked for our upcoming ski trip, we go on the 11Th of Feb. Therefore we get to go. However if there rescue package is pants and the bank pull the plug, we will be stuck in France.
Its bad news all round as the more competition the keener the pricing.
We never book either, we park up at the dock and buy a ticket for the next day from who ever gives the best deal .. usually it's Sea France ..
stuck in france
Hi Hagnap could think on a lot of worst places to be stuck :thumb:
so did I but please tell me that I don't have to book with someone else now:Sad: bryan will you lose your cash back
if you pay on a credit card and re-pay it in full at the end of the month....are you still covered for loss later?
Not sure that Seafrance have gone bust,one thing for sure is that we are in this crap for being so negative about companies that are struggling.
Have booked with Sea France for last 6 trips, always best been best price and liked the "amendable " return system, hope they "stay afloat" - forgive the pun - as the remaining companies are sure to increase their prices with the lack of competition on the routes
