Brittany Ferries

If you're planning a trip to France, consider Brittany Ferries as your first port of call for its sailings between the UK, France and Spain. This renowned ferry company has an all-encompassing online presence with a website offering up a whole lot more than ferries to France.

The website is a portal to discovering both France and Spain, where you can organise not only your ferry to your destination country but also take care of your accommodation as well with ferry-inclusive holidays. Whether you want a hotel break, a cosy cottage retreat in France or to soak up the sun in Spain or Portugal, there's a great choice of holidays on offer.

FERRY BOOKINGS

First off, book your ferry from the UK to these French ports - Roscoff, St Malo, Cherbourg, Caen, or Le Havre, or to Santander or Bilbao in Spain. Check out latest offers, sailing timetables, full descriptions of the types of cabins on offer and dining facilities. For those looking to book a ferry to France in 2017, book early and pay just £35 to secure your booking.

If you have pets and can't bear to be parted from them whilst on holiday, Brittany Ferries is an approved carrier of cats and dogs with a Pets Travel Scheme. Providing your cat or dog has a DEFRA certificate, you can travel on the ferry with them. There is accommodation for them too with kennels and even pet-friendly cabins on some ships.

For regular travellers, consider joining Club Voyage where you can make substantial savings of up to 30% on ferry travel and 10% on meals. There is a registration fee and an annual subscription thereafter.

Ferry crossings aren't just for travel either with gourmet cruises and whale and dolphin watching trips too.
