TRAVEL AND WEATHER: Delays on A27 after collision and breakdown

Have your say

YOU don’t have to travel light to get the right deal for your holiday - that’s the message from Portsmouth International Port as National Ferry Fortnight gets underway.

The two-week campaign, backed by industry group Discover Ferries, aims to highlight the advantages of travelling by ferry.

Bill Gibbons, director of Discover Ferries director, said: ‘Free baggage is one of the great family competitive advantages of ferry travel – others include the freedom to walk around enjoy the ship’s facilities and restaurants, great family value on fares, and the simplicity of driving on and then straight off at your port of disembarkation.’
