4th March 2015 - Press Release

Port of Dover supports National Ferry Fortnight

As Europe's busiest ferry port, the Port of Dover is delighted to support National Ferry Fortnight, which runs from 2nd to 15th March 2015.

A member of the Discover Ferries industry body, the Port of Dover is committed to supporting its major ferry customers – P&O Ferries, DFDS Seaways and MyFerryLink – in helping to promote the great customer service and benefits of ferry travel available from the Port.

This year, National Ferry Fortnight is promoting the advantages of ‘Ferry Freedom,’ encouraging consumers and their families to experience the ease, value and flexibility of ferry travel.

Barbara Buczek, General Manager – Business Development, Port of Dover, says:

“National Ferry Fortnight continues to grow year-on-year as the benefits of ferry travel continue to be recognised.  It is vital we get behind this campaign, highlighting why the Port, together with its ferry partners, represents the best way of crossing the Channel.  I am sure that there will be some great offers to further entice customers to return to Dover once again and experience the freedom of ferry travel.”

The big advantages of crossing the Channel by ferry include the ability to move freely on-board, enjoying the quality cuisine, entertainment and shopping options as well as the freedom of open-deck fresh air while enjoying the sea views.

Of course there are also some great onward break destinations, aided by the advantage of no luggage limitations or surcharges. Once passengers disembark, they have the freedom of exploring new places in the comfort of their own vehicle with the bonus of being able to bring bicycles along for the ride.

Central to the campaign will be a series of enticing promotional offers on ferry routes from Dover, which will be promoted on www.discoverferries.com.

Bill Gibbons, Discover Ferries Director, says:

"We are delighted to have the Port of Dover, the largest Ferry Port as a member and supporting National Ferry Fortnight. Our three Ferry companies based in Dover will all have special offers and this is the best time to book your holiday for 2015. Go to our website - DiscoverFerries.com.”
