Arrive closer with our choice cruise and high-speed sailings direct to the holiday regions - avoiding the long drive through northern France

Start your holiday on board and enjoy everything from a great choice of dining, stylish bars and lounges, kids' play areas and shopping. Or simply tuck the kids up for a good night's sleep in your comfortable en-suite cabin

Pack your car and go

Take your own car and enjoy the convenience, freedom and savings it has to offer especially when you factor in airline baggage charges, parking your car at the airport and then hiring another at the other end! Plus, our check in time is just 45 minutes before departure!

And of course you can pack everything you need, which is great when travelling with kids - and all the things that come with them!

From everything for baby and toddler to bikes, surfboards, inflatable dingys and maybe even your golf clubs (if you can get time to yourself!)

Less driving, more holiday

With the widest range of ferry services direct to Brittany, Normandy and northern Spain, we can take you far closer to your holiday. Meaning you'll enjoy less time at the wheel, and have more time with the family - whilst also saving on fuel, tolls and overnight stops.

Better still, you'll also find that our UK ports of Portsmouth, Poole and Plymouth are often far more easily accessible than Dover - meaning that you save miles of driving both sides of the Channel!

And if you haven't taken your car before, you'll quickly realise just how easy driving in France and Spain really is. With less traffic, you'll enjoy wide open and simple to navigate roads, making getting to your final destination a pleasure.

Everyone's holiday begins the moment you step aboard

On board, there's plenty to keep you and your kids occupied (whether tots or teenagers).

Most ships feature a selection of play areas, games rooms, live entertainment, cinemas and children's clubs. Once on board, help yourself to the day's entertainment programme available at the on board information desk, with more information at the entrances to, or inside, the main bars.

Holidays too

As well as getting you there, we also offer a superb range of great value, ferry-inclusive holiday accommodation across some of the best regions of France and northern Spain.

From action-packed chalet camping resorts and beachside apartment complexes to family-friendly cottages, villas and hotels, there's sure to be something to suit everyone, including tots, teenagers - and even Mum and Dad!

And for the perfect family break why not treat the kids to a few days at Disneyland® Paris - which can be tagged on to your holiday, or booked as a separate break, including your sailings.
