    P&O Ferries - Best time to book/vouchers 7th Oct 16 at 3:02 PM
    Hi all,

    I'm planning a trip to disneyland with the family in December (26th). For various reasons I've decided to drive down there and take the ferry. As of now P&O is the only one that have an early morning ferry (7:40)
    I was wondering when is the best time to book? Will they release some deals i.e. voucher codes etc? Or will it only get expensive as time goes on. Promo codes for that site seem hard to find and none work.

    Apologies but planning this trip on a very tight budget so every penny counts really and trying to make it as memorable for the kids

    Any help from experienced members would be greatly appreciated

    the thing is

    ... if that P&O early sailing is the only one, they really have no incentive to discount it unless they are struggling to fill it.
    If that's the case, they may well cancel it and consolidate it with a later sailing.
    Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine.

    Thanks Moto2 and hollydays
    Makes sense, I think it is best to book now just in case prices rise
    Thanks for all your help, wish there was a working promo code though

    I have a code. Don't know if it's valid for France

    Save20. Give it a try
    if you lend someone £20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it

    Have you checked the tunnel? They seem to be running a limited service on Christmas Day and have about 2 or 3 trains an hour on Boxing Day morning, prices similar to P&O if you are looking for a 5 day return.

    The current P&O offers end around the 15th Dec, so I would expect the Christmas period to have few, if any, offers, although SSA5DAY seems to give a return price of £84 returning on the Friday.
