DFDS OFFERS TRAVELLERS THE BEST OF BOTH THIS SUMMER

Date: 18 May 2018

DFDS is offering customers a 'Ferry Flex and Save' option when booking during the peak summer season, giving travellers the chance to sail to Europe on one DFDS route and return on a different route. This means they can explore more of the continent's rich heritage while saving on crossings.

​Holidaymakers can travel on the ferry operator’s Newcastle-Amsterdam route and return home via its Calais/Dunkirk-Dover route – or vice versa​

Those departing from the UK via the Newcastle-Amsterdam route can also take advantage of a 30% discount on selected travel dates in July 2018*.

The flexibility of this multi-route option gives travellers the opportunity to have the best of both worlds – a solution to peak season pricing with the flexibility to extend their holiday by creating a fun and personalised road trip.

Bookings can be made until 29 June 2018 and are subject to availability.

Outbound travel on the Newcastle-Amsterdam route must be made between 4th-5th July and 7th-18th July with no date restrictions on the return route via Calais or Dunkirk. Departures made from Dover to Calais/Dunkirk can be made any time, providing the return journey from Amsterdam-Newcastle is made between 13-15, 19-22 and 26-29 June, 3-5 July and 24-30 Aug 2018.​

DFDS operates daily sailings between Newcastle-Amsterdam, while crossings between Dover and France operate 54 times per day.
