Ferry Savings for your family holiday
We know it’s important to our customers to get the best value deals when travelling by ferry to our Siblu campsites in France. We’ve teamed up with Brittany Ferries to offer you a year-round discount on Brittany Ferries routes when you book a camping holiday with Siblu.
Brittany Ferries operates the longer routes from Portsmouth, Poole and Plymouth to western France saving miles of unnecessary and costly driving. Travel overnight by luxury cruise-ferry in the comfort of your own cabin with en-suite facilities or be whisked across the channel in as little as 3 hours.
Siblu customers and Siblu holiday home owners can save 5% on their Brittany Ferries crossing. This discount ONLY applies when booking a Siblu holiday or for Siblu Holiday Home Owners and the Siblu booking reference for the holiday or the owner account number must be supplied.
Please note, when you follow this link the discount is automatically applied but does not appear as a separate saving. A cookie is left on the Brittany Ferries website, so if you return within 30 days the discount will continue to be automatically added.

When travelling from Ireland to France, Irish Ferries propose 3 routes, with 2 crossings from Rosslare and one departing from Dublin.
There are plenty of options that tie in with our Siblu holiday dates. All our holiday parks in France have any day arrival and departure in the low season and in the peak months of July and August, where many of our parks operate on a Saturday to Saturday arrival and departure, the Rosslare to Roscoff crossing is ideal.

Taking the ferry to the UK and the Eurotunnel on to France
Taking the combined journey of the Ferry to the UK and onwards with the Eurotunnel is also a good cost-effective option. For the first leg of your journey you can hop on the ferry with Irish Ferries to Holyhead on the Jonathan Swift' fast ferry. In less than two hours you will be in Holyhead. Head across the Isle of Anglesey and Northern Wales towards Chester, cutting down onto the M6 and M6 Toll and on to the M1, M25 and then across Dartford Toll bridge.
If you’d like to take your car through the Eurotunnel, departures are from Folkstone, which will take you to Calais in just 35 minutes. You can leave your car inside the shuttle carriage, and relax at the onboard shops and restaurants. There are up to 4 departures an hour, and one ticket covers 1 car and up to 9 passengers. The great thing about taking the Eurotunnel is that there are no luggage restrictions, with the following vehicles and add-ons accepted: cars, vans, campervans, minibuses, motorcycles, roofboxes, bike holders, trailers and caravans. On arrival you simply drive off the train and you're in France at Calais for the final leg of your journey.
