    What is the cheapest way to cross to europe for 2 people and car?


    Even willing to go from Hull to Rotterdam as I live in Scotland.
    Heading towards 72 and getting even more forgetful and confused and tending to ramble even more.
    If you think I've asked this before I probably have.

    It really depends when you want to travel, as a general rule, the shorter the crossing the lower the fare but if you want to leave during the first week of the school holidays in England, then every route will be expensive. If you want to leave tomorrow, P & O out of Hull may have some good fares. There simply isn't a clear answer without knowing more about your plans

    As Alan said, the cheapest route is likely to be driving to Dover and crossing to Calais or Dunkirk, although Hull to Rotterdam might be better for your sanity.
    Let's settle this like gentlemen: armed with heavy sticks
    On a rotating plate, with spikes like Flash Gordon
    And you're Peter Duncan; I gave you fair warning

    We live in Scotland too. And usually go Newcastle - Amsterdam in a fancy commodore cabin and that cost 420 return in December (2 adults, 2 kids and a car. bring you own food as dinner is expensive rubbish). In a cheaper cabin it costs about the same in summer.
