I have a Calais-Dover ferry ticket for 2 people with bikes.

Bizarrely, they were cheaper than foot passenger tickets.

Plans have changed, I'm now unable to take the bikes (going the other way on the eurostar). Will they refuse to let me on?

  • Curious - when you say bike do you mean bicycle or motorcycles? Oct 3, 2017 at 11:21
  • Will they let you on, sure. Will they require you to change your tickets to the correct category, maybe.

  • 1
    if the fare is that favorable, I should start a bicycle rental business at each port and take money to let people move my bicycles from port to port. Oct 3, 2017 at 16:41

According to their terms and conditions (emphasis mine):

Changes in the route, date, time, passenger numbers or vehicle types for non-promotional fares are subject to availability and will result in the difference in price between the original price and the fare applicable on the day you make the amendment being charged (a “Re-price”) and an amendment fee as set out in the table in 4ii below.

You'd be charged (for the whole booking, not per person):

£20 + Walk up fare (at least £95) - Amount already paid

However, the risk of this being enforced seems slim, but if they tried it on, you'd have no recourse other than to pay.
