Brittany Ferries also offers a reduced price "Economie" service which departs at 23:15hrs Monday to Thursday returning at 17:15hrs Tuesday to Friday. This service is perfect for those looking to get to France on a budget without either the cruise-style experience you will find on the cruise ferries or the speed afforded by Normandie Express. Visit Brittany Ferries website page about the Economie service for more information.

The Normandie Express is a twin-hulled catamaran capable of whisking you to France at almost 50 mph. The facilities on board include two bars and a caf´┐Ż serving delicious snacks and drinks, and offering great views. WiFi is available, for a charge, and there are slot machine games to while away the time when you're not relaxing in the comfortable seats with plenty of legroom.
As well as being the newest route from Brittany Ferries it is also the most easterly, offering a fast and easy way to reach Paris. In fact Le Havre is the nearest car ferry port to the French capital, just 196 km away, with a driving time of about 2 and a quarter hours via the Autoroutes A131 and A13.

With the recent completion of the A28 the whole of France can be reached without needing to go via Paris by taking the A131, the A13 and then the A28 via Le Mans. The Loire is just a two hour drive.
