These four DFDS ferry routes, paired with short breaks and an onboard cinema, provide your customers with the ideal gateway to Europe
Celebrating 150 years as a company in 2016, the DFDS team are proud of its heritage and achievements.
With a portfolio of four ferry routes from the UK to Europe, it offers Dover-Dunkirk and Calais, Newhaven-Dieppe and Newcastle-Amsterdam. So no matter where its customers are in the UK, they have a port nearby. DFDS also has routes to Scandinavia and across the Baltic Sea, including a Copenhagen-Oslo trip.
It offers up to 62 sailings daily, with short and overnight crossings available. The crossings from Dover-Dunkirk and Calais take two hours or less, whereas the Newhaven-Dieppe crossing takes four hours and the Newcastle-Amsterdam route is overnight.
Its three routes to France are excellent gateways to Europe. Dunkirk port is just six miles from the Belgian border, and many customers use it to access Belgium, Germany, Holland and beyond. The Calais and Dieppe routes give customers fantastic access to Normandy, as well as Paris, the Loire Valley and even further afield to the Riviera.
The onboard facilities include a shop, restaurants, bars and children’s play areas. The overnight Newcastle-Amsterdam crossing even boasts a cinema, casino and nightclub, as well as an array of cabins both budget and luxury, plus disabled access and pet-friendly cabins.
DFDS also offers short breaks on the Newcastle-Amsterdam route, so its customers can enjoy a city escape to the Dutch capital.
Travelling with DFDS also means your clients can enjoy the freedom of a self-drive holiday, whether it’s in a car, caravan, motorhome, motorcycle or bicycle. There are no luggage restrictions when travelling with DFDS, so customers can pack at their leisure, as well as have the option to bring home souvenirs they pick up on their travels.
DFDS likes to make sure its customers and partners receive top-quality service. It’s for that reason it offers agent incentives, including theatre trips and evenings out, plus excellent rates on crossings and short breaks.
