If the idea of going at your own pace on holiday sounds appealing, then a self-drive getaway can be the perfect method of travel.  

Wave goodbye to airport queues or clock-watching for your taxi to the train station as you embrace the freedom of being in control of your journey from start to finish.

Taking advantage of our favourable ferry and Eurotunnel crossing rates means you can more easily keep track of what you are spending, as these can be booked alongside your accommodation package on a per family or group basis.

If you’re travelling further south then the benefit of a self-drive holiday means that you can stop off whenever and wherever you like as you take your family and friends through some of Europe’s most eye-catching landscapes.


Breaking up the drive can be a great way to keep the kids occupied, with modern ferries able to combine the traditional exhilaration of ferry travel with restaurants, shopping, entertainment and children’s activities.


A floating play and entertainment space will keep children and teens occupied for the duration. 

Games rooms, play areas, small toys and Wi-Fi internet access are available on all cruise ships, while the adults can grab a drink and unwind in the restaurant/bar area.



If you book an overnight crossing, accommodation will be required. On day crossings, they can represent the perfect place to relax or store any excess luggage. 

There are a range of cabins to choose from, including sea-view options for watching the waves as the sun comes up. 


We offer a wide choice of crossing routes from the UK to Holland, France, Belgium, Spain or via Eurotunnel from Folkestone to Calais. 
We’ve put together a list of popular routes and timings on our ferry routes and timetables page to help you plan the journey.


The quickest and most convenient way of crossing the channel with a car sees you take a Eurotunnel trip from Folkestone to Calais. 
The added bonus of Eurotunnel travel is the reliable 365-days a year service unaffected by adverse weather conditions, with up to four departures per hour during park periods and only a 35-minute total journey ensuring you spend as much time as possible at your park destination 
Free Wi-Fi access in the terminal as you wait, air-conditioned seating areas throughout and toilets on-board make for a supremely comfortable mode of transport. 


Having parks dotted across Europe means a stopover holiday adventure is well worth considering.

No matter how far your end park destination, you can split up the journey when heading south by visiting other parks along the way, thereby ticking off more region and country destinations on your bucket list and creating your very own multi-centre travel experience in the process.
