France Trip 2011 Booking Thread ROUTE ADDED

Post by vinp182 »

In an attempt to try and please everyone that has shown interest in this trip, the planning team have decided that both 2 day and 3 day trips can be merged

The dates have been set and are 25th, 26th,27th June 2011

Tunnel booking info for 2 day trip:

Departure time from Folkestone 07.20 25th June 2011

Departure time from Calais 22.20 26th June 2011

At the moment this will cost about £51.00


Tunnel booking info for 3 day trip:

Departure time from Folkestone 07.20 25th June 2011

Departure time from Calais 22.20 27th June 2011

At the moment this will cost £87.00

These costs may change depending on when it is booked :th:

Here is a quick run down of the trip once we arrive in France:

Day 1 we will head from Calais down the coast to Honfleur.
Day 2 will be from Honfleur to Lemans :clapping: where you can have a drive around the famous circuit :D we will then return to Honfleur.
Day3 We will travel back up to Calais

The people who are doing the 2 day trip will do day 1 Calais to Honfleur ,stay over in Honfleur and then on day 2 returning to Calais.

Regarding hotels we have decided to nominate two hotels which are within a few hundred yards of each other in Honfleur, they are the premiere class Honfleur at £82 for two nights,this is a basic hotel or for those wanting something a little better there is the Ibis Honfleur at £107.27 for two nights,this includes a 15% discount for booking two nights stay.

I will post in more detail over the next few days and post the links up but just wanted to fill you in on what was decided on the skype call for now :th:

Next we will be looking into places to stop en route for food or points of interest that people may want to stop at and have a wander around,and hope to compile a list of food outlets for the route.




Please post on this thread once you have booked your tunnel crossings. Also add how long a trip you have booked :)

Thanks

Trouble is i am overseeing the corporations' global switch over from AutoCAD to Inventor as our design software. This will be a trip for me and my right hand man to USA for 5-8 days. It's not something i can duck out of as we'll have representatives from Oz and S. Africa joining us. As of now it is the only time we can gather everybody together...

I've added hotel info for staying in Folkestone on the 24th June

Might be worth booking for the return journey too if you don't fancy the long drive home straight after the trip :th:
