A: 3 seats, Driver plus 2 passengers all with full seat belts.
Q: What is the best Ferry route to take?
A: Our recommendation is generally to use the routes between Portsmouth/Plymouth and Santander/Bilbao. When you compare the cost of using these routes against the additional costs for fuel / road tolls / overnight stops you may need driving through France, it really does start to make sense.
Q: Can I use the Eurotunnel?
A: Yes you can BUT, on the standard train you are only allowed 3 cubic meters of load, this is about the sizein the back of a Land Rover Discovery,
If you have more than 3 cubic meters of load then you will have to go on the freight train, if this is the case it is cheaper to cross the channel using the ferry between Dover and Calais.
