A STATEMENT from Euroferries says that despite its November start date being delayed, the ferry firm is still taking bookings for travel between Ramsgate and Boulogne.
At present tickets can be booked for travel from March 1, 2010 although the statement says 'new launch dates will be published as soon as possible'.
An example of the prices for a return ticket, for two adults with a car, travelling out from Ramsgate on March 1 and heading back a week later comes to £66.50.
Euroferries is promising a fast ferry link between the UK and France, as well as a bus service for passengers from London via Ramsgate, Canterbury and the Medway Towns.
Unfortunately the start date for the route has been repeatedly delayed, although should it start in March next year it will be 12 months after Euroferries said they would originally get up and running.
The Euroferries statement reads:
