Was on the sailing from Portsmouth to Santander late January and from arrival to departure everything was great. The surprise in our dog friendly cabin was the goody bag for the dog and the collapsible water dish was and is great. Only one minor thing. We had a dog friendly cabin, but we had to go in shifts to get... More

Never had a problem with Brittany Ferries. They don't fuss if you need a last minute change and don't search for every possible opportunity to fleece you. Made one complaint about accommodation and was refunded the erroneous charge and they spoke to the owners. Hope to keep using them for years.

If you have a bereavement do not expect Brittany Ferries to be sympathetic, we asked for a credit voucher to use with them at a later date they just refused and kept the money and hide behind their T&C's

Unfortunately without knowing the specific booking details I cannot comment on your situation but we do try to be as flexible as possible if customers are unable to travel.

Over 25 years of travel on the Portsmouth-St Malo route, and still really like it. Day crossing back a bit of a pain as it is such a long way (well, the crossing takes around 9 hours). Overnight there is fine, have dinner, go to sleep, wake up have breakfast, roll off and on your way. Cabins have always been... More

As a family, we use the Brittany Ferries Plymouth to Roscoff route throughout the year. They offer an excellent service that offers value for money. Ships are pleasant, well equipped and well appointed. Transfer from the car decks up to public areas are easy to negotiate and well managed with plenty of stair wells and lifts available. I am nervous... More

After travel through france with horrendous cost of fuel, and not so cheap digs. The last half dozen trips i have gone Bilbao/Santander. I have found this far more relaxing and trouble free with just the car and my wife for company!. The cabins are really comfortable and the breakfast plentiful and far superior than any motorway cafe in the... More

Travellers when planning their journey take into account their Destination, possible Routes and mode of Transport, amongst other factors. Travelling with car from Spain to England and return presents various options. Brittany Ferries between Bilbao and Portsmouth offer an effective service and several choices. We prefer Portsmouth to Plymouth as having a superior Ferry Terminal and being an easier and... More

I love taking the ferry to Spain. I now usually upgrade my cabin so I get a tv and coffee. The wifi could do with a little or lot of help at times. The food is reasonable theirs enough to do for 24-5 hours.
