  1. Anyone know why Mont St Michel was about 2 hours late leaving Portsmouth this afternoon?
  2. Further Good News! It's only 2 tests on the way back 1 3days before and one on day 2/3.
  3. Simpler insurance, as you won't be travelling against F&CO guidance. However you still need the full 4 tests....... 1 on the way to France, 3 on the way back.
  4. Even if the test were free for tourists arriving in France, there could still be the one before boarding the ferry and two or three back in the UK.
  5. Will these be freight only sailings?
  6. This gives the clearest explanation I have seen. https://www.moneysupermarket.com/pet-insurance/future-pet-travel-EU/?cicp1=&source=GOO-0X0000034BF3C5C0C2&mckv=sIH4S8r1U|dc_pcrid_289446326050_mtype_b_kword__2764ri918980_slid__pgrid_57324587974_ptaid_aud-454381113556:dsa-491163017509&uuid=11111111-1111-1111-1111-111111111111&Device=c&engine=google&ptaid=aud-454381113556:dsa-491163017509&gclid=CjwKCAjw1ej5BRBhEiwAfHyh1Msmeu-5u4TUY34bbcaM1o6_wDLsG4bu_By1Y9tOkR_1zzCmHzQsUhoCEgcQAvD_BwE&adloc=1006790&pgrid=57324587974 The main costin a no deal situation is the recurring visit to the vet every time you leave the UK , at £60+

    2021 Timetables

    The other factor to bear in mind with Le Havre is the possibility/need to reintroduce a reinforced emergency service, post Brexit, once again subsidised by the UK Government. That could kick in 1st January once the location of the Portsmouth lorry park has been finalised.
  8. And in normal years the price does creep up, the closer you get to the holiday season.
  9. The dockers may be in a bit of a quandry as to where to direct their ire, bankrupt employer or the shipping companies? Why? Their employer is jointly owned by 5 other businesses, 2 of whom are Brittany Ferries and Condor.....................
  10. Is it public knowledge know how much Brittany Ferries et al have already paid in stage payments for the missing Honfleur.? It must makes the amounts people are whinging about re cancelled crossings look like a drop in La Manche One suspects its all part of a slate wiping exercise. If you cancel your over-hanging right to compensation for late delivery, we will be in a better position to refinance, and then negotiate a sum to complete the contract. BF must be in pole position to negotiate some completion deal for a ship that is almost completed, and custom built for one of their routes. Anyone else is going to have just as much to pay PLUS any modifications to suit their needs.
  11. Cheeks are dirt cheap, even pence from the butcher as generally get chucked away. Not any more. They are still a cheaper cut, but since the trendy chefs started using them, they are £8 a kilo in Waitrose!
  12. It's a slight change to the Le Havre departure , making a "normal" afternoon exit rather than the timetabled Friday evening departure. 25/03/16 Le Havre to Portsmouth 22h00 (Baie de Seine) - We are sorry to advise that forecasted heavy seas have disrupted our timetables this weekend. This sailing from LE HAVRE on Friday will now leave at the earlier time of 17h15, with latest check-in 16h30. The ship will arrive in PORTSMOUTH at 21h45.
  13. Re The TV News report mentioned earlier. In effect the report says that wef !st January Brittany Ferries are imposing new work rotas that require the engineering / technical staff to work an extra 4 hours per week, which they say is equivalent to 9/10 days extra work per year, with only a small offset of 4 extra days holiday. The unions are going to court to delay the introduction pending further talks. Negotiations have been going on for 6 months. I hope this doesn't mean a new round of strikes is on the horizon.
