P&O Ferries is laying on extra Dover - Calais sailings over the Bank Holiday weekend in response to threatened industrial action at Eurotunnel.

Tunnel tourist passengers are advised to re-book with P&O Ferries so that they have a ferry reservation, rather than just turning up at Dover or Calais.


The company has capacity on sailings throughout the weekend, particularly on departures at off-peak periods during the night or early morning sailings and will offer additional sailings at night when some of its ships are normally laid up.

Passengers travelling over the Bank Holiday weekend are urged to use the M2/A2 route into Dover to avoid anticipated lorry queues on the M20/A20.

The P&O Ferries website for information and reservations is www.POferries.com and the telephone number for the call centre is 08716 646464.
