DFDS offers people of Kent one free post-Covid weekend return trip to recognise extraordinary patience of Kent residents.
Dover is placed in Kent, where our many neighbors have experienced several traffic disruptions during the pandemic. Now, DFDS has decided to offrire free ferry trips to Kent residents once current Covid-19 restrictions are lifted.
Filip Hermann, Vice-President & Head of Channel Routes for DFDS, said: “Our employees stepped up and helped us to get more people home by running extra sailings over the Christmas period. Local people also showed great kindness and community-spirit, coming together to help the drivers stuck in Dover, at Manston and on the M20, despite the disruption their communities were caught up in. We’d like to express our sincere thanks to them by offering them the opportunity to travel with us free for a weekend break after the Covid-19 restrictions are lifted.”
Up to 2,000 Kent residents in total can travel for free under the offer, travelling out on a Saturday and returning the next day. The free sailings will be for a car and up to four passengers and will be made available in 2021, as travel currently remains restricted to essential journeys only under the Covid-19 tier system.
DFDS will inform the Kent residents about how to claim the free crossings once pandemic restrictions are lifted.
