Anyone used Norfolk line recently?

On a bike that is. I note that they are putting length restrictions of 2 meters on bikes, and extra £15 if you go over. How many bikes come in under 2m, apart from mopeds?
Do they actually check?

Couldn't duplicate your findings when a fictitious booking was done last evening, brilec.Have found all cross channel operaters now appear to change their prices on an almost daily basis. It pays to scan them all before making an actual booking.

Well on the first booking page, select motorcycle as the vehicle, then the page changes to indicate 2 meters max, and a little box alongside to select a longer dimention.www.norfolkline-ferries.co.uk/en/dd-passenger/book%20online?lang=en

Did that, brilec, at 2m and again at a bike lignth of 3m. Got same price both times.

Well when I tried it the price went up by £15. I selected dates etc, went to the next page and the selection of possible sailings shown, ant in the bottom RH corner, +£15 (additional vehicle length). Just tried it again on a different selection of dates.Anyway, Sea France came out cheaper, with more sailing times for convenience. And they didn't want to know the length of the bike.

Yup, also re-booked a couple of crossings with SF after Speedferries cancelled two long standing bookings. SF crossing time is shorther than that of NF.Could be the NF tricks have something to do with the fact that their ex "Passenger Manager" (for want of a better title) who is a biker has left the company. It is sad NF, who were extremely fair and helpful, appear now to have adopted similar scams used by P&O.

So how many bikes come in under 2 m in length? Rather like saying their standard car is max 3 meters.

Not the bike here.But, we all know this is another trick to sqeeze every last Penny from Joe Public. As mentioned above, one has to now look at every cross channel operater on a daily basis to get the best deal.
