    Last minute 24h ticket
    • To avoid extra £50 fee applied by DFDS to booking made less than 24h before travel, I had to use 3rd party website to buy ticket. I was put on earlier ferry on a way out and took ferry from Dunkirk instead of Calais on a way back. Both ports and ferries deserted, so it was easy and comfortable.
