Bags of Room as Skiers Set Sail for the Alps

Share Article

Baggage is no problem for winter sports fans setting sail on a self-catering ski holiday with P&O Ferries - there's even room for the kitchen sink.

You are free to pack unlimited luggage and ski equipment into, and on top of, your car and travelling by ferry also gives you the freedom to stretch your legs and enjoy our great onboard facilities.

With heavy snow already reported across the Alps, keen skiers and snowboarders are starting to think about packing up and heading south for their winter break.

Convenient, and cheap ferry crossings from Dover to Calais or Hull to Zeebrugge go straight to the heart of the European autoroute network with most Alpine resorts eight to 10 hour's drive away. There is no wasted time in airport queues and there are no baggage restrictions.

"For ski holidays in France, travel by ferry beats air travel every time," says Sarah Staughton, P&O Ferries' head of marketing. "You are free to pack unlimited luggage and ski equipment into, and on top of, your car and travelling by ferry also gives you the freedom to stretch your legs and enjoy our great onboard facilities."

Ferry crossings this winter start at £25 each way for a car and up to nine passengers using the Dover-Calais service.

P&O Ferries' website also has a direct link to Pierre-Vacances holidays, which is offering discounts of up to a third off self-catering apartments in many popular ski resorts for French ski holidays booked before 31 October.

The ferry company's website also features travel and driving information, including recommended overnight and lunch stops en route, compiled by top travel writer Nicky Holford.
