SeaFrance launches priority boarding service

SeaFrance launches priority boarding service

SeaFrance Dover-Calais Ferries has launched a brand new priority loading and disembarkation service, enabling customers to speed up their crossing times.

For an introductory price of £8 per crossing, the new ‘Rapide’ service allows passengers to be the first to board their SeaFrance superferry and also the first to disembark, meaning they can beat the traffic and get to their destination that little bit faster.

This special upgrade also has the benefit of giving Rapide passengers the pick of all of the seats from which to enjoy a coffee and croissant in the SeaFrance lounges, or the table with the best sea view at gourmet waiter-service restaurant La Brasserie.

SeaFrance operates up to 30 daily car ferry crossings on the Dover-Calais route. Fares for a car and up to nine passengers start from just £35 each way (£70 return) online for any duration and from £22 return for a day trip.


Also in Europe today, City.Mobi is celebrating the success of its new guide to Dover.
