More choice and more flexibility – Brittany Ferries opens for 2020 reservations
16th October 2019
For the best in fabulous destinations, the greatest choice of cabin options and to secure a deal on a 2020 sail-and-stay summer holiday in France or Spain for under £800 for a family of four, book now. That’s the message from Brittany Ferries which has just opened for reservations ahead of the 2020 season.
To help customers find the best deal on their ferry fare and to bring more choice to the market, Brittany Ferries has introduced a new ticket structure this year. Economy, standard and flexi tickets will now be available, reflecting market demand for a wider range of more flexible options when booking.
“We have recognised that a one-size-fits-all ticket system was no longer fit for purpose,” said Joëlle Croc, sales and customer experience director for the company. “So we’re introducing a new range of ticket types allowing customers to choose from more options, customising their ticket in line with their own requirements and budget. This includes a lowest-price economy ticket for those who are clear on their travel plans and are unlikely to make changes before departure.”
While competitors demand full payment at the time of booking, Brittany Ferries will continue to offer a deposit scheme for those booking a standard or flexi ticket. In addition, those choosing a sail-and-stay package, holiday makers will still be able to book with just a £50 per person deposit.
The complete range of Brittany Ferries ticket tier benefits follows:
Cheapest fare, full payment on booking, no refunds on cancellation and £20 fee for amendments to a booking
The most popular fare, 50% deposit on booking and free amendments up to two weeks before departure.
Most flexibility, 25% deposit at time of booking, free amendments up to four hours before departure and 75% refund in the event of cancellation before departure.
The company has also taken the opportunity to reassure customers on both sides of the channel concerned by post-Brexit arrangements. “Links that have been forged over the past 50 years and the entente cordiale enjoyed by the UK and France will not be broken by a new political landscape,” Joëlle Croc added. “Whatever we face come 31 October, Brittany Ferries is committed to make the journey as seamless as possible for Brits travelling to France and for French passengers coming to the UK. We look forward to welcoming you on board.”
