Ferry to Calais prices
If you are looking for a ferry to Calais and the prices, check out the P&O Ferries website (poferries.co.uk) that offers transport to cross the Channel into France, Belgium, and Holland. Get over to Calais on September 24, 2011 for £39 and enjoy a week's holiday in southern France. The Pride of Canterbury leaves at 19:30 and if you sail at 22:15, you'll get a ticket at a reduced price of £25. Both prices are for the outward journey and are valid for a family of 2 adults and 2 children between 4-15 years travelling in a vehicle with no trailer or caravan.
Your inbound sailing will cost £45 if you are taking the 21:45 ship on October 1, 2011. At 23:25, you can get a better deal at £25 with your entire crossing a mere £50.
Want to avoid annoying queues? For priority boarding, add £12 and include your beloved pets at £15 each. On top of these discounted rates, you'll receive a free Disneyland Paris ticket for one adult. The site has special offers as well for upgrades to the Club Lounge, among other things.
Be aware that there are restrictions on the height of vehicles loaded at this asking price. So, if you are leaving with a 1.8m x 6m caravan, budget £50 for the outward journey leaving at 22:15 and another £50 for the inbound segment or a total of £100. This is a late night schedule and services onboard might be reduced.
Alternatively, book your journey via Direct Ferries (directferries.co.uk) to scout for interesting bargains. Leave at 14:20 on October 22, 2011 and return on October 31, 2011. A round trip ticket for 2 adults and 2 children in a Volkswagen Touareg will cost £70 on SeaFrance. You leave Dover at 14:20 on the SeaMoliere and return from Calais on the 18:40 ferry.
For a higher-priced (£75) journey but a more convenient timing, opt for the 12:15 departure. You reach the other side at 16:55 giving you enough headstart to reach your destination before dusk. For the return sojourn, depart at 17:30 arriving in Dover at 18:00. The duration of the voyage is about 1 hour and 30 minutes. Factor in an extra £37.50 to the total ticket price for breakdown cover should you experience problems with your vehicles.

For a whole 75 minutes, there's plenty onboard that will keep everyone busy from shopping, dining in the restaurants or simply taking in the sea air while reading a chapter or two of your favourite novel.
