    Vito Crew cab on Dover - Calais Ferry

    Hi All Thinking about buying a nearly new, new generation Vito Crew Cab/sport compact similar to the old model Dualiner as a family wagon. We do a lot of trips to Europe and I wonder what category owners are booking their Vito under when travelling on cross channel ferries? P&O have a...

    Disabling alarm on my E-Class W212 for the Ferry

    I'm shortly taking my E220 W212 across the channel on a ferry. They usually ask you to disable the alarm and any internal motion/tow away sensors. I seem to recall years ago there was a button to do this for my W210, possibly also for my W211, but after a cursory look at my current set of...

    Ferry or Tunnel?

    We're thinking of travelling to France then on to Spain, probably late August/early September. Which is recommended? Tunnel or Ferry?

    Ferry Question

    This summer it looks like I'll be taking the ferry rather than the Tunnel in order to cut costs. The tunnel has limits on the amount of reserve fuel I can take [2x10l metal containers]. Are there any limits for ferries? This takes on a new significance because the fall in sterling makes all...

    Getting a ferry

    Anyone know off the top of their head the price difference between booking a ferry in advance and turning up on the day (or booking the day before). Cheers, Ade

    Overcharged for ferry - a little help please?

    I recently booked a car ferry, and told them that my car was a Mercedes C-class. The travel agent said a long vehicle supplement would apply of £13, because my car is apparently 4.6m long. But the manual says that my 202 estate is 4.487m long. The travel agent understands that I have been...
