Routes to Portugal


New Member
Planning to take our RV to Portugal in Oct/Nov, looking for the best way ? Not sure if it is best to cross the ditch to France and drive the rest or get a ferry to Spain (can’t find one to Portugal) Looked at ferry from Portsmouth to Santander which saves a lot of driving and may be cost effective - £482 one way for our National Dolphin. Any advice will be much appreciated.


It depends on how quickly you want to get to Portugal. We invariably use the Portsmouth to either Bilbao or Santander ferry as running through France costs us more money.
That said, if you have plenty of time a trundle through France can be lovely.
