When I first started using car ferries, comparing the costs of different ferry routes and sailing times was a slow and painstaking process.
There did not seem to be anyway of comparing different crossings on similar routes to see which was cheapest on the day you wanted to sale.
Just like everything else on the internet, things have got better. AFerry.co.uk has recently launched a new ferry booking engine that allows you to compare prices for different sailings on similar routes – for example, all Dover-Calais crossings or all UK-Holland routes.
Because this is such a great tool (we have even used it ourselves to book a trip), we have now partnered up with AFerry.co.uk to make this service available through the MotorhomePlanet.co.uk website.
As far as I can tell, the prices quoted by the AFerry booking system are exactly the same as the prices you get if you book direct with the ferry companies – but this way is much quicker.
