P&O FERRIES OFFERS CHRISTMAS SHOPPERS SIX FREE BOTTLES OF WINE WHEN THEY BUY A £29 RETURN TICKET TO FRANCE
BARGAIN hunters are being given the chance to stock their wine cellars in time for Christmas courtesy of an outstanding festive offer from P&O Ferries.
The ferry company is giving away six free bottles of red, white or rose wine to shoppers who buy a £29 return ticket from Dover to Calais.
The news means that Christmas shoppers who want to take advantage of the strong pound and buy their presents at the hypermarkets around Calais are effectively being given six free bottles of wine just for taking their car across with P&O Ferries.
P&O Ferries also stocks discounted wines and spirits in its on-board shops, with some of the best deals including:
- 6 x bottles of Kumala Western Cape Pinotage Shiraz/Chardonnay for £16 (Tesco price £7 per bottle)
- Calvet Red Bordeaux Prestige for £5.99 or six bottles for £22 (Tesco price £8 per bottle)
- 2 x bottles of Veuve Cliquot champagne for £55 (Tesco price £36.99 per bottle)
- 2 x litre bottles of Bombay Sapphire gin for £32 (Tesco price £22 per bottle)
Janette Bell, Commercial Director at P&O Ferries, said: “Although duty free shopping ended some years ago, a P&O ferry is still one of the most cost effective places to buy wine and spirits.”
“As everyone who travels there knows, alcohol is much cheaper to buy on the continent. Our on-board prices reflect what you would pay for wine in France rather than Britain, with savings of up to 25 per cent available on two bottles of Veuve Cliquot champagne.”
“When you add in the fact that we are offering six free bottles of wine with a £29 return ticket, there really is no better way to ensure that you have all the festive drinks you need for Christmas without spending too much.”
