Press Release


Date: 26 June 2019

Award-winning ferry operator DFDS is offering motorcyclists 25% off sailings from Dover to Calais and Dover to Dunkirk.

With thousands of miles of amazing roads to explore, through some of the most diverse and striking landscapes in Europe, the motorcycling holidaymaker is spoilt for choice. With 54 sailings a day to choose from, bikers can set sail and ride away, visiting some of Europe’s most popular holiday destinations at their own pace, the perfect way to experience a road trip.

This special deal means crossings on these routes to France start from £18.75* each way for a motorbike and 2 people.

On board, passengers can enjoy a freshly made meal with great quality ingredients in one of the restaurants and cafés or perhaps a spot of retail therapy in the on board shop.

Or for a touch of luxury, passengers can enjoy some relaxation time in the Premium Lounge, available for an extra £12 per person with complimentary hot and cold drinks, pastries, fresh fruit, newspapers and even a glass of prosecco.

*booking period is 24th June 2019 to 30th June 2019 for travel between 24th June and 18th December 2019.
