How’d you mean Peter? Most trucks go Pompey to Bilbao, leaving the Sunday night w/end before. At the moment I can’t get a booking for Barca, let alone for late Oct!

Britney has now got the winter timetables up on their website. Nothing from Bilbao in Nov, and awkward timing from Santander! 1800 Monday likely not possible to make with a truck unless can leave the circuit by early pm. Next boat Wednesday, and it’s not one of the better ones.....

That would just affect return then? In which case will have to drive up to Caen or Calais....

All a bit puzzling, as they can’t expect freight to not travel just because it’s winter.... I’ll ask when I next chase them about first trip availability.... I’m wondering if they simply haven’t worked out the timetable that far ahead, as the freight site still shows nothing on any crossing after 3rd Nov!

Just checked again now I’m home and have a bigger screen to look at, and Britney freight website timetables all stop on November 3rd, regardless of route! So on that basis Caen isn’t an option either, BUT it must be a timetable update thing as the boats operate all year round.....

On that basis, Yes!

It’s always frustrating when booking as freight with them. I know competitors going to Barca in two months with private car and trailer that have confirmed bookings made before Xmas, but up to this morning no freight space has been allocated on the same boat! Obviously hoping they can get as many tourists on as possible......

They'll always hold space for their major freight customers - if you buy through one of the agencies I'm afraid you'll always get the leftovers, if there are any. We befriended a biggish French outfit by giving them lots of backloads, they gave us crossings in return. Worked for tyre repairs as well, after one of ours sat for a whole day waiting for a replacement tyre on the way to Magny Cours (with a pile of tyres for testing). The Robin B'stards tried to charge us the best part of a grand for the privilege, our French friends put it on their account and it magically reduced to £300. That job was for Arrows, blimey that was a long time ago!

Good story!
I stopped going through an agency after delta got a space by booking direct and I didn't! Since opening an account it's been no problem getting a space, and even choosing where I want a cabin. Only frustration is that they don't seem to release any space until a certain level of tourist bookings have been made. Yes, obviously the regular bulk customers will automatically have space reserved, which is then released near the time when actual requirements are known. That's fair enough!

Just come off the phone to Britney. Their booking system shows ferry crossings for November and onwards, so sounds like the website and it’s timetables are the issue. Out of curiosity I tried a tourist booking on line and no ferries for November that way either.... Guess using the same timetable / calendar!
