    Newhaven-Dieppe Ferry cost anomaly

    We have just booked our ferry. While I was calculating the cheapest fare I noticed that if you book two singles it works out cheaper than the combined cost of a return, quite bizarre. Foolishly I didn't test whether you get the OAP discount off the single fares, for which you have to phone to book. Thought this might be useful for someone. It cost us 188 return for a 7m van.

    We booked a few weeks ago and paid 179 for 8 metres return, (extra to include the scooter rack) it obviously depends on date and time, last year we paid 142 return, they do seem to have increased the price. Both with old fart discount!
    Interesting what you say about the single working out cheaper

    We didn't choose the cheapest time, could have been less, but as with all things I think the price goes up the nearer to departure and the fuller the ferry/plane/bus/train

    Just rechecked ours and as yours, not the cheapest, but the times we wanted. The worst thing is, the prices have not changed and we booked on 2nd Nov
