One of the best and cheapest ways to get to Spain. if you want to have a car when you get there. is to take a ferry from Plymouth in the UK. Brittany Ferries is one of the top ferry companies travelling from Plymouth to two destinations in Spain and, as it’s cheap to use for you and your car, it’s a great way to save money on travel and car rental.
You can take Brittany Ferries from Portsmouth to either Santander or Bilbao, Spain. There are two return crossings on each of these ferry routes every week, so its easy to pick one that suits. What’s also wonderful is you can just book for a ferry trip to Spain, or you can book the ferry and an inexpensive Brittany Ferries package holiday in a hotel for when you get there.
Ferry trips from Plymouth to Santander and Bilbao take around 24 hours each way but, once you’ve got the car parked and secure, you can check into your cabin, relax in the lounge, sunbathe on the sundeck, watch a movie at the cinema, or eat at one of the ferries’ awesome restaurants.
Prices start as low as £194 per person, which is based on at least two people in a car. To make it as cheap as possible, you can choose to sleep on a reclining chair at night, instead of in your own cabin although, if it was me, I’d splurge the little extra and get the comfy cabin.
