Offers and Deals for YouThe Special Offers section of the website is where you want to head if you’re looking to snap up a low-cost deal. Here you’ll find all sorts of offers on ferries to France, Holland and Denmark, with prices starting from only £34 per person. These special rates are usually only available on specific travelling times and must be booked before a certain date, so make sure you check the small print before you jump in.
Multi-Trip TicketsIf you regularly flit between the UK and France, consider getting a multi-trip ticket. Available on single and return crossings on the Dover to Dunkirk and Dover to Calais ferry routes, this ticket allows you to pay a fixed rate for each of your trips, making it much cheaper than buying a regular ticket for each of your journeys.
The more you travel, the more you save! Here are the current rates:
- 3-4 return trips - £29 each way
- 5-8 return trips - £27 each way
- 9-11 return trips - £25 each way
- 12+ return trips - £22 each way
Each of the multi-trip tickets is valid for one calendar year, so try and buy it as close to the start of January as you can in order to get the most value.
Early Bird OffersBeing organised really does pay off with DFDS Seaways’ early bird offers. By booking your Amsterdam mini cruise 60 days or more in advance, you’ll save a whopping 30% on the standard price. That works out at around £55 per person for two nights on the cruise, five hours in Amsterdam and coach transfers, based on two sharing. It works out at only £36 per person based on four sharing.
If you’d rather go elsewhere, check out the early bird Denmark offers. If you book 60+ days before travelling, you could save a massive 25% on your mini Esbjerg cruise.
