Free ferry voucher for France or Ireland, for five people, for up to five days

What’s the deal?

Register with cashback site Ipoints*and it'll give you a free ferry voucher for France or Ireland, valid for up to five people – just for signing up.

How can I bag the voucher?

Ipoints is a cashback shopping site that awards points when you buy from a retailer via one of its links. The best bit is that they will give you 40 points just for registering: enough to buy a ferry voucher.

Once you've signed up log in, click on "Redeem" and then on "Travel & Accomodation". Use 40 ipoints to pay for the ferry voucher.

The small print

The voucher’s for a free return ferry voucher for up to 5 foot passengers to France and Ireland for five days. It’s valid on the Dover-Calais route to France or, for Ireland, Holyhead to Dublin and Pembroke to Rosslare. It doesn’t include a car, though it says discounts on car rates are available.


* Using these links helps the site stay ad-free and free to use, as they’re ‘affiliated links’ which invisibly take you via commercial price comparison services like Moneysupermarket or Find, which then pay this site per click

You shouldn’t notice any difference, the links don’t impact the product at all and the editorial line (the things I write) is NEVER impacted by the revenue. If it isn’t possible to get an affiliate link for the best product, it is still recommended and still included. The following is an identical unaffiliated links provided for the sake of transparency.

    This is not as good as it sounds.

    When you redeem the voucher and go to make the booking, you find that you still have to pay port charges of about ten pounds per person. Oddly enough, if you forget about ipoints and just book as a foot passenger, the fare you end up paying is about the same as the 'port charges' you pay with ipoints. And once you have registered with ipoints, your mail box will fill with all their special offers (several mails per week), virtually none of which are worth pursuing.

    You get free tickets for France AND Ireland. Have used this before as foot passengers and never had to pay any extras. Ipoints does send e-mails but not that many to discourage anyone from taking up this offer!
  • true enough, voyager, I,ve been recieving Ipoints nonsense for a while now, they dont update my account properly, I've been on 49 points for ages now and have done some online surveys for this but have yet to find anything worth spending points on, BUT! you can use them on amazon. You need a minimum of 50 points though. All a bit labour intensive. Emails are frequent but mine are filtered into my junk mail so it isn't too bad.

    This offer has been discussed at great length before:

    Dover--Calais route is now operated by Sea France for this offer.

    I went to france for a day trip with sea france a couple of weeks ago for £19 with a car and up to 5 passengers.
    We overtook the P&O ferry both ways, so they are obviously quicker ferries too!!

    Just opt out of the newsletters in your account section, it says at the bottom of the email how to do this and you don't get this problem.

    Try for a £19 crossing with car & 5 passengers. If you are lucky you also get a show from the dolphins off the bow and it takes less than an hour from drive on to drive off.
