  • "Fantastic Service"

    Got to crossing late for both outward and inward crossings, this did not matter they booked us on next boat with no penalties! Unlike other companies the crossing was excellent and facilities on board too. Would definitely use again and recommend. 5 Stars Well Done.

  • "Excellent experience! "

    We had a very good ride both ways. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Both ferries were on time and found them clean and with decent food options. Will repeat it as l found it a good cheap and stress free way to get to the continent.

  • "Trip to France"

    I had never used DFDS before but the price was very competitive. In the past we've used Eurotunnel & other ferry operators out of Dover. Check in was very smooth, we were offered an earlier sailing to Dunkirk, it was explained that it took longer but we were happy to travel to Dunkirk. The ferry was very clean, plenty of seating and only took 1 & half hours. Staff on board was very pleasant and helpful. On our return we needed to come back a day early, son in hospital, no problems, very pleasant young man in the ticket office in Calais explained we would have to pay a small charge and got us on the next possible ferry, within 30 minutes we were en route to Dover. Again, very pleasant journey, clean ferry, pleasant staff. Will definitely use this company (Direct Ferries) and DFDS again when we return to France.
