The typical duration is between 1 and 2 hours for both routes.

By pre-planning your journey you could use the ferry to shave time and stress from your journey. Typically, ferry crossings are relatively cheap although it does depend on the size and type of the vehicle you are in and which company is running the service.

The better websites offering ferry crossings will be able to offer you listings from a great many companies including P&O Ferries, Brittany Ferries and Condor Ferries. Typically Dover to Calais can be as cheap as £13 for a single passenger making it very good value indeed. This makes France accessible for a very affordable price meaning that if you are on a tight budget and have the means to get to Dover, then opting for a Ferry could be a very wise investment. Ferries also offer you the freedom to move around the boat and relax in a way that trains or planes can’t offer.
