Cheap short breaks to France with Brittany Ferries Day Trips offer
Have you see the latest Brittany Ferries Day trip offer? It’s SUCH a great deal – they call it a ‘day trip’, but you’re actually allowed up to 29 hours on shore; which totally makes it a short break in my book. I had always presumed you got just a few hours in port before you had to catch the sailing back, but actually with that amount of shore time included in the offer, you can get an overnight stay and really do a little sightseeing while you’re there.
We’ve been wanting to take the WWII-mad 12yr old to see some of the D-Day Normandy memorials for some time; it’s never enough stopping for a quick look on the way back through Normandy at the end of a holiday, he wants to properly explore and see the museums.
With their day trip offer starting at £24 per person, that’s a seriously bargainous way to head over for a quick night away and do some decent exploring (it’s not just Normandy, either, the day trip offers are on all the crossings, plus you can mix & match and do a different crossing each way). If you want to get out of the port, then taking your car is only £30 extra, and that frees you up to go where you like.
With the special day trip offer to France you can sail from Portsmouth, Poole or Plymouth, and head to Caen, Cherbourg, St Malo, Le Havre or Roscoff.
Explore the beautiful port towns (I’ve been through Cherbourg countless times, but have never once stopped to explore it. I’m betting it’s the same with most ports; they’re always a waypoint, never a destination), go shopping for the day or simply relax and soak up the atmosphere on the beach. With options of a same day return or overnight crossings, it’s much more than dipping into the Port for an hour or two before you have to rush back to make sure you don’t miss your ride home again.
- Sail from either Portsmouth, Poole or Plymouth
- Sailing to Caen, Cherbourg, St Malo, Le Havre or Roscoff

This day trip offer to France is valid for travel until 31 October 2015, and bookings must be made at least 24 hours in advance of travel. We’re going to take full advantage of Home Education’s lack of school restrictions, and take the boys over to the Normandy beaches in September; even with five of us and the car it’s still only £150 form Poole to Cherbourg – totally bargainous!
