I missed my ferry, because my train was delayed. The company immediately accepted to change my ticket for the next day without any supplement.

My wife and I traveled from Jersey to St Malo on the 9.10 am Condor Direct Ferry on Monday 26 August 2013. This is the first time we have traveled on a Condor Ferry. We found the trip was well organised and we had a smooth trip. We found the seating and services provided to be of a high standard. We cannot assess the catering facilities on the ferry as we did not utilise them

Jersey is a British crown dependency in the English Channel off the coast of Normandy. Along with the Guernsey it forms the grouping known as the Channel Islands.
The defence of all these islands is the responsibility of the United Kingdom. However, Jersey is not part of the UK, nor the European Union, but is rather a separate possession of the Crown.
Jersey’s prehistoric period produced a rich legacy of artefacts. Remnants of a great French forest that existed over 10,000 years ago, when the Island was part of the continent can still be seen today at St Ouen when there is a low tide. Flints and crude stone tools were left by hunters in La Cotte a la Chevre (Goat’s cave) now perched 60 feet (18 m) above the sea level on the north coast of St Ouen and La Cotte de St Brelade is one of the most important Palaeolithic sites in Europe.
St-Malo is a port city in Brittany northern France on the English Channel. Walled and built with grey granite stone, modern St-Malo traces its origins to a monastic settlement founded by saints Aaron and Brendan early in the sixth century. In later centuries it became notorious as the home of a fierce breed of pirate-mariners, who were never quite under anybody's control but their own; for four years from 1590, St-Malo even declared itself to be an independent republic. The corsaires of St-Malo not only forced English ships passing up the Channel to pay tribute, but also brought wealth from further afield. Jacques Cartier, who colonized Canada, lived in and sailed from St-Malo, as did the first colonists to settle the Falklands - hence the islands' Argentinian name, Las Malvinas. Now inseparably attached to the mainland, St-Malo is the most visited place in Brittany - thanks to its superb old citadelle.
