Self-drive camping holidays

Self-drive camping holidays


Getting there is part of your holiday! 

At Canvas we love the flexibility and freedom ferry travel adds to your camping experience, which is why we offer the option to add a ferry crossing to your booking to create a self-drive camping holiday in Europe.

Load your car with everything you need for a successful trip and hit the road.

Drive on to the ferry and set sail, enjoying a mini-holiday on board one of the well-equipped ships. On your driving camping holiday you can travel to one of our European campsites in France, Spain or Holland.

The relaxing way to travel

Ferry prices start from £50 return for Dover-Calais crossing - find out more about the different crossings available here. 

Here’s why taking the ferry is a great way to travel to a camping holiday:

  • No baggage restrictions - if it fits inside your car you can take it with you.
  • Privacy – in your own car or ferry cabin you don’t have to worry about disturbing other passengers if you’re travelling with kids.
  • Affordable – your ferry crossing fee is usually charged per car so it can work out as an affordable option, particularly for a family.
  • On-board facilities – from shops to kids’ play areas to restaurants, your ferry journey offers plenty to keep you entertained, refreshed and relaxed while you travel.
