Quicker ferry makes mortgages for France more attractive than ever
With Europe just on the UK’s doorstep, mortgages for France seem more enticing than ever before as travelling to France becomes quicker and more comfortable thanks to LD lines’ fast new service between Dover and Boulogne.
The 11,000 tonne vessel has cut ferry crossing times from the current 1hour 45mins to just an hour helping bring the continent even closer. As well as carrying tourists, the vessel is also capable of carrying freight, cars, caravans, motor homes, motorcycles and coaches.
As well as being quicker, the LD service runs more frequently, pushing services up from two a day to six and providing a much more flexible service for tourists. The new vessel also has been designed to have greater sea-keeping qualities and give greater passenger comfort to help reduce the feeling of motion sickness in rough weather.
Mortgages for France more appealing with easy crossing
For those who don’t like flying or want to take their car with them, this new service looks to provide travellers to France with a comfortable, fast and easy alternative.
Managing Director Christophe Santoni said, “This is a very exciting, innovative step forward for LD Lines and with the introduction of this new high speed ferry, we will be dramatically revolutionising ferry transport across the channel, with a style of service never experienced before on the Dover Straits.”
