Hi Carol, thanks for the reply, yep if your O/H is willing to drive then it looks a pretty good. I recon from my experience your total travel cost is probably around £250 maybe just over depends on what your driving of course, so your still saving.
Just to mention your O/H does not like putting the car on the ferry, almost everytime I have used the tunnel, people forget to take their cars out of gear before starting and bump the one in front.
Shame you aren't a better sailor as you could use the Transmanche ferry out of Newhaven.
