    Santander ferry

    After some help and advice please, I just tried to book onto this ferry for two bikes for me and my mate and a cabin, however it seems that I can only book one bike / rider per cabin, we are on a budget and need to book one cabin for two people with two bikes, anyone ever done this? It seems that the booking site doesn't allow for this even though it's a double cabin!

    Never had that problem, IIRC, you select number of vehicles

    as long as you have a cabin you can both use it. Just book your mate and his bike without a cabin. They are not going to check occupancy

    As we have numerous times, anything more than a number plate change we have done over the phone.

    Re the crossing.
    Done it 3 times now, first two were lovely and calm but the third one was rough, very rough.
    Spent the last half of the rough crossing in bed as it was the best place to be as standing was too difficult.
    But it's pot luck really and from spring through to autumn should be, but only should be, a smoother crossing.

    Thanks, aye I've heard the bay of biscay can be pretty rough, like you say its pot luck. I cant win with other half she doesnt think she will manage 4K miles in the saddle for our first European adventure so my thinking was that Santander would be a good stepping stone for our first trip..

    I think you will be having the problem as the ferry is full to its quota of bikes
    Ring and ask them
    Stuart W is considerably richer than you

    We're booked in May for outbound Portsmouth to Bilbao and inbound Santander to Plymouth
    If Santander is full both ways try this option

    Hi

    Text me on 07542549244 me and I will give you the code which is all above broad. You certainly can book two bikes and two persons with one cabin. I have done this dozens of times and have future bookings exactly as this.

    Derek
