Here is an important message to all us Britons planning to cross over for Hessisch Oldendorf!

There is a very good deal at the moment with Norfolk Line, crossing from Dover to Dunkerque,
IF YOU BOOK BY 31 JANUARY.
I have booked a return journey, leaving at midday on Thursday 25 June and returning on Tuesday 30 June at 2pm
for a car and up to 4 passengers for only £57.02 return all inclusive.

If you call them on 0844 847 5027, you can get the 'multitrip' deals whereby the more cars book as a group, the better
the deal:
a group of 5 return journeys means a return fare of £24 per party (the 'silver' deal)
a group of 9 return journeys means a return fare of £21 per party (the 'gold' deal)
a group of 12 return journeys means a return fare of £19 per party (the 'platinum' deal)

Check with them for crossing times and related fares since the price may vary.

I think all parties within a group deal have to travel together there and back. Since I am staying on to go
to Wolfsburg after HO, I didn't think it would match anybody else's travel plans so I booked individually.

Don't leave it late, the fares will go up nearer the time, to two or three times what they are now!
And book before 31 January!

Happy booking!:d

A question i've been meaning to ask,concerning distance and traffic.
Why not sail into Hamburg:?:
Miles and miles nearer and you can sleep on the boat overnight.
Think sailings go from Newcastle and Hull(OK no good for you southern Jessies,the furthest north you know is Stanford Hall).But also Harwich.
Take the weight off, after all it will be part of your holidays this year.

I think Harwich-Hamburg is finished. They did Harwich-Cuxhaven for a while but that's gone too!
These were such good routes, like a mini cruise!

I agree, when I am a passenger..! but when I am driving I prefer the roads to be more post-apocalyptic 'Survivors' style :lol:

WELL, despite having booked our hotel rooms last Jan '08 and having been in regular contact with the hotel owner since then who has always confirmed our booking, in the last 2 weeks somehow we have been 'elbowed' out into a guest house in the next village and I was only told on Sunday and I was not happy :twisted: So I have cancelled our HO trip now completely. BUT I WILL be finding out in due course who is now sleeping in our beds, so they had better watch out in future as I WILL be asking a few other Brits some questions 😳

But anyway here is some info for you that I worked out last year :

distances to H.O.
Hook of Holland 394km
Zeebrugge 499km
Ostende 520km
Dunkeque (cheapest!) 563km

No direct Hamburg ferries anymore, only Esbjerg, but thats 503km on to H.O. but I agree with 50Karman that would have been a really nice drive/tour/holiday option.
Except that from our house to Newcastle ( which I had to look up on google map as I had no idea where Newcastle was! jimmy nail? :lol:) is 314miles! So no, not good for us southern softie kids :lol:

If you still have'nt booked a hotel for the BBT stopover, this is great, lots of rooms and very near BBT (not walkable) with good safe parking and good evening restaurant meals, we stayed there last time, if you want extra safe/hidden parking, ask them for a room at the back of the separate accomodation block, not in the main building:

BBT Hotel 

Have fun :d
(ps. I am actually happy now that we have cancelled before you ask as we have a lot of other things & trips on this year anyway and it has'nt taken much to tip me off this one)

No hotel room:shock: Is that the reason why you're not comming to HO :shock:
There are plenty hotels there , Ok not in HO but close enough, because you would come with that 350% faster car, that can't be a problem ! You'll regret:wink:

We have had our rooms booked and confirmed here (where we stayed last time) since jan2008 :roll: :

We still had rooms booked for us apparently, just in a different village now?*! :shock: No longer walkable into town, and I simply dont want to bother that much any more , too much hassle for booking a hotel room 18months in advance for just 4 nights!
It is just too ridiculous for me. But I dont mind I'm off to Antibes instead now, no cars involved only sea
:d

No thanks, we dont want to share any of your SAGA warden assisted rooms in your holiday rest home either, I cant be doing with those plastic under sheets you all like :lol:
