Default Booking ferry tickets online- follow up thoughts

Just following a slightly different tack from the earlier ferry booking
thread.

I Used the main ferry operators websites to check prices before booking for
SeaFrance Dover-Calais (last month). They always have a section for
promotional codes. I got a code on the 'special offer' sheet they send from
time to time, that gave an extra 10%. (Entering IMTS or IMPS etc)
So I hunted online for codes and came up with 'VIRGIN' that gave 20%
instead. Obviously an offer that ran perhaps in a tie up somewhere.

The moral: Book direct on the ferry operators website and hunt for codes
before you actually book.
There are websites specially running to show all offer codes etc.

Following my last post re the problems with on line booking at CC

I have now received a refund for part of the costs I incurred from the CC
who frankly have been very helpful indeed.

Not only have they put there hands up and said not good enough but on asking
got a refund against some of the call costs in trying to get through on a
premium rate booking line run by there independent ferry contractor.

All I can say is I have always got in the end a very good service from CC
and if you are fortunate and never used red pennant you are lucky. but if
you do it is very good indeed and worth every penny.

Peter.
