The route, the timing (outbound)

Timing (inbound)

As St Malo was what came out of the bag for my long-service trip, my next thoughts were "ok, so how do I get there?" I don't drive and I know that Brittany isn't best served by SNCF. What bliss then to discover that I can get there direct courtesy of the British rail network and Brittany Ferries...

“Use Brittany from Britain”

published 13/09/2009

Clean and reliable

Some cabins are getting "tired"

We haved travelled to France six times in the last 8 years and each time we have chosen to use Brittany Ferries for our crossing. This is more to do with the fact that they service the crossings we want to use rather than a conscious decision over other operators. We usually travel to the West...

SEA SICKNESS!

Last year I had to attend a European Conference in Brittany (France). We needed to take a lot of equipment and display boards so decided that the ferry would be the easiest option. I looked on the internet and found that for a small car, 3 passengers and a cabin with bunk beds we would be looking...

“Slow & fast”

Convenient times

Poor reclining seats; choppy seacat crossing

We've just got back from a weeks holiday in France and took Brittany Ferries from Porstmouth-Caen on the way out and Cherbourg-Portsmouth on the way back. Both were very different experiences! Portsmouth - Caen (overnight); We took the overnight ferry which departed at 11.15pm and arrived at 7...

Don't seem to publish their prices

We've been using Brittany ferries for years and rate them really highly. We live in Cornwall and have a house in south west France and have tried all sorts of ways of getting there - trains, planes etc but this is by far the easiest and most pleasant way to travel. Nowadays we always book on line...

I have two children ages 12 and 3 and have always found flying to a holiday destination with them a real chore. The lack of space and limited number of things to do on a plane have always left me very frazzled upon arrival. This year we decided to try a camping holiday in Brittany and to travel...

If you want a really good mini cruise to Spain then look no further. I went on this fabulous cruise a couple of months a go and will be going again next month. The Cruise Ship: Let me start off by talking about the cruise ship itself. The boat (called the Pont-Aven) was launched in March 2004 and...

Brittany Ferries is not just a ferry operator, but also a holiday and hotel booking service. ~~ Booking ~~ Somehow, no matter how hard we try to plan things in advance we always do things at the last minute. Last July we decided, rather late in the day, that we’d like a ‘little holiday’ in France...

Brittany Ferries have spent around £100 million pounds on their new flagship, Pont Aven. It entered service between Plymouth, Roscoff and Santander in Spring 2004 and quickly developed engine problems which lead to crossings being cancelled for a couple of weeks. The ship was restricted to...

I would just like to write a review on Brittany Ferries, which is one of the companies that provides cross channel ferry crossings to both France and Spain from the south coast of the UK. OK so I may be a little bit biased as I used to work for them, but I hope that this doesn't get in the way of...

“Frittany Berries”

You should arrive alive

Quiberon is sooo rubbish

With my grandparents now living there after their retirements, I'm lucky enough to be able to scrounge a free holiday in France just about every year. Brittany Ferries, is from what I've seen, the most popular of the ferry companies which make the trip to the French shores. Their name can be kind...

Relaxing 24 hours

Quite expensive

This is the fourth time I use the Plymouth to Santander crossing. I travel to the south of Spain and it saves having to drive the whole lenght of France. The ferry takes 24 hours and I always look forward to that day as an opportunity to relax. I usually have to travel during the peak period and...

“SAVE A FORTUNE BY SURFING.”

Its a good beginning to a holiday

Rip off pricing from site to site.

As you may know, I live in Brittany and before Ryanair came on the scene, the only way for us to go backwards and forwards to England for family affairs etc. was Brittany Ferries. Recently, however, I have had many friends ask me to make their reservations for them on the net because I can save...

poor on board facilities

We travelled on the pride of the fleet ' Val de Loire ' from Plymouth to Santander in September 1998, took the car on board and had an outside cabin booked.. Brittany ferries took two lots of money out of my bank account and by way of compensation they gave my £60 in dining room vouchers for the...
