Brittany Ferries 'claws back' summer bookings







Brittany Ferries is reporting a surge in last-minute reservations for ferry travel to France and Spain after a weak start to the year.

It says reservations have soared by 25% in the last two weeks, with 15,000 more passengers booking summer holidays compared with the same period last year.

In March, the company blamed Brexit uncertainty for a 10% dip in summer reservations.

"At the start of the year, things looked bleak and the numbers got progressively worse as we approached 29 March," said Christophe Mathieu, Brittany Ferries CEO.

"We really feared for the summer season. However, the latent demand we hoped for seems to be returning to the market largely thanks to a Brexit-free summer. We may not quite match last year's figures, but last-minute reservations have helped us claw back a significant part of the downturn."
