Brittany Ferries économie

Brittany Ferries économie

Welcome to Brittany Ferries économie, a no-frills service offering even more choice to Spain and France. If you're looking for a lower fare and are content to travel without the cruise-style experience offered by our cruise ferries, the économie service is perfect. As with all our ferries, the économie ships are operated by Brittany Ferries bilingual French crew and officers.

What to expect on board a Brittany Ferries économie service

Customers familiar with our cruise ferries will find that both Etretat and the latest addition to our fleet, Baie de Seine, have smaller public areas and generally less space onboard. Both ships have self-service restaurants offering limited but tasty French cuisine. Baie de Seine also has a café. Both ships have shops selling a range of tobacco, spirits (at French prices), confectionery and gifts but these are limited when compared to our cruise ferries. The cabins on both are comfortable yet functional, some have vinyl flooring instead of carpet and there are two wheelchair accessible cabins on each. Pet owners will welcome the pet-friendly cabins on both services and for those looking to travel with a little extra comfort, the new Economie Plus cabins on Baie de Seine will be popular.
