Plain Sailing with Eurocamp's Fabulous Ferry Deals
July 04, 2009 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel NewsOffering an irresistible combination of convenience, value for money and flexibility, ferries are a great way to travel – and with many Eurocamp parcs within a short drive of several ferry ports across Europe – it's a perfect way to start a summer holiday.
With such benefits, it's no wonder over 40 million passenger journeys are made by ferry each year. And this is likely to increase further, with ferry companies set to invest £1 billion in new services and ships over the next three years.
To help its customers take full advantage of this fun and easy way to start a holiday, Eurocamp is offering free crossings and other great prices on ferry travel to many ports across Europe including France, Spain and Holland. The leading tour operator's holiday base price includes a free return mid-week P&O Dover-Calais crossing, making them a hugely cost effective getaway option.
It's little wonder therefore that so many Eurocampers make the most of this comfortable, 'holiday-starts-here' service by setting sail across the channel.
Onboard there's plenty to keep everyone relaxed and entertained, with an impressive range of facilities - including reasonably priced refreshments, safe children's play areas and duty-free shopping.
And with no lengthy security check-in procedures or baggage restrictions and the flexibility of taking your own vehicle, you can simply drive off at the other end - all set to enjoy your holiday with complete independence and freedom to explore the best that Europe has to offer.
And like all aspects of a Eurocamp holiday, ferries are hugely economical and provide a cost-effective travel option as prices are charged per party rather than per person.
