  • "DFDS Ferries"

    We book with DFDS always. They run on time. The staff are all polite and helpful. Also because we travel upwards of three hundred miles either way to get to the ferry ports timing can often be difficult. DFDS cater for this by allowing a free ferry before or after the alloted boo kind. There are very flexible.

  • "Valais to Dover"

    We arrived an hour early for our booked ferry and we were able to board an earlier ferry with only minutes to spare. This was wonderful, no waiting around at all. The ferry staff are welcoming and the facilities were clean and comfortable.

  • "Excellent"

    Very good service. We arrived quite late but still allowed us to board the ferry. Nice and straight forward, lots of places to sit and a nice little cafe to eat and drink. Friendly staff and a shop that has most things. Great trip.

  • "Fantistic sailing."

    The sailing was perfect. Very good boats both ways and good times. The return trip was being refurbished but it did not spoil the experience. Would recommend and use again. The only fault if any is that there is no thought for cars with dogs. Example parking to one side of the boat so the dog does not get too disturbed by other car passengers and can relax better.

  • "Excellent service"

    We actually set out 30 mins early - the previous boat was delayed, so DFDS efficiently and seamlessly moved us onto it before it left. Great fish and chips on board. Boat is small but well layed out, with plenty of comfortable seating. The only thing missing for me was some quality french produce in the shop - but if all you want is a quick and easy crossing, DFDS does the job.
