Car/ Van ferry prices.
Just been checking out ferry prices from dover to France.

Pricing for a small car, the cheapest is about £70 return , a small private van same size is about £ 210 return.

Anyone know if a multispace classed as a van or is a van classed as a multispace for prices?

Just wondering if I stick/ paint fake side windows with heavy tint would it pass as a multispace.

Van = van. Multispace = car.

Well! Well, I would never have guessed !
Well you did ask.

I am going Dover/Dunkirk with DFDS & my Multispace cost £78 return in June for 3 weeks.Hope this helps.:thumbsup:

What I don't understand is a multispace, same size and shape as a berlingo van is a third of the price.
The berlingo van is a car derived van @ £105 single fare, and a multispace is a van derived car @£35.

It must be similar to the Severn Bridge toll,£6-20 car & double for a van.I know,I had a C15 & it was cheaper to go via(& congest) Gloucester.Confusedcratch:

A van can go across the channel for the same price as a multispace if it is registered and used as a private vehicle. The higher price is when it is being used as a work or goods vehicle. For many years we had a van (not a berlingo) as our private transport and we crossed the channel many times for the same price as a car the same size. You often see stealth campers (campers that look like vans - no windows etc) on the crossings and they have only paid the standard price.

What you need to watch is the height. Different operators have different classifications.

DFDS is 1.85 max before being charged extra
Britanny Ferries is 1.83 and classified as a MPV?
P&O is 1.80 max - you have to specify actual height and at 1.86 it shows fewer sailings! for today. Could be a problem if you want flexibility of travel.

Note that fares on P&O at the moment (11.00am) are all over the place. The more flexible fares are the cheapest?

The Berlingo is is shown as 1.80/1.83/1.86 in the handbook. XTR highest.
