The annual Spanish dog race is under starters orders, the owners are hunched over their keyboards. Who will fall at the first time out and who will reach the end of the race with the greatest pri

Well there’s a spoonerism if you ever wanted one! 🤣

Interestingly, BF are saying on Twitter that the reason for the summer timetables arriving late is to allow more people to get through on the phone and book winter crossings. It has absolutely nothing

Got my issue with the deposit sorted out, it was because my card expired before the balance was due something that should have been flagged up in the booking process automatically, I’m sure BF have added it to the list of things to fix now.

Making a Bilbao - Portsmouth June booking this afternoon, the website immediately flagged up that if I wished to proceed the full sum would be taken as my card expires in Feb 2020. Changed to a different card with longer expiry date.

That's always been the case, hasn't it?

Nothing wrong with a firm response

So this person has been promised a 5% discount off BF's price by booking through Chez Nous but is complaing to BF because the discount hasn't been applied?

FAQ's .........

How much is the deposit on a ferry booking?

If you choose to confirm a ferry booking with us we require a 25% deposit whereupon we issue a confirmation advice that sets out the details of your reservation and provides other information.

Yet they are asking for 50% when i get my final price ...... not making sense at all.

Yes, you have to play before you can enter so you are probably right. The things is, you have to wait until 31 December to see if you've won or not but that's probably still quicker than trying to use the booking engine or call centre! 😂 Ed.

Has anyone else tried BF's interactive quiz and prize competition? I don't know if the questions are always the same but the ones I got were really difficult. However, it doesn't seem necessary to actually get them right to enter the draw.

I got 2 out of 5 - got it in my Facebook feed.  Mine were about dolphins, fish and whales. I reloaded the page to see if I got different questions but i got the same ones, just in a different order.  And when I finished it took me to the page to enter the draw. I don’t feel right entering the draw if I haven’t got them all right.

I only got one correct (doh!), but I was still invited to enter the draw (so I did)

Anyone had a try at booking Poole - Cherbourg beyond 21 April 2020. No dates are showing after that.

 

I've tried Portsmouth - Caen for 19th outbound and 26th April return and its telling me the booking cannot be made on line. Is it me, the computer or a generic thing.

 

Ps A great reply for the tweet https://twitter.com/BrittanyFerries/status/1185205133954764802?s=20  😊👍

For most bookings in April, whether or not they span the changed booking conditions, it may well be needed to book 2 singles.
