I'd guess that it's down to size (isn't it always?!...I Campervans are usually sub 5 or 6m (can't remember the cut-off), whereas a 'standard van' I guess could be anything up to a a Merc Sprinter which is longer and higher, so takes up the space two cars/ campers could, hence twice the price...?Ok. so looking at ferry prices and Campervan prices are pretty much half the price of a standard Van.
Whats the deal with putting it on as a campervan. It looks like a campervan inside?
Dover to France I always use Norfolkline.
They just specify "passenger vehicle under 2.4m high" or "passenger vehicle over 2.4m high"
night crossings in August would be £44.60 return.
Don't ask Norfolk line for a quote on the Edinburgh - Zeebrugge route, for a car they quoted me £990 daren't think what they'd have said for the T4!That's exactly what we just did (Dunkerque not Calais) but a bargain! My van is white with wheels and lowered - no windows or anything - the guy at check in asked what was in the back, and he just tagged a note onto his computer to say we were autohrised as a camper. (the tow bar did scrape aw we went up onto the top ramp - but that's pretty common!!)
Yes, you'll need to book, otherwise you'll pay the top rate if you just turn up at the port... probably twice or three times as expensive!Going over this Wednesday early morning apx 2-3 am . Do I need to book??
Thanks in advance Belly
