Yes Jay, all you have to do is book the ferry, try find a second person to book with as it works out cheaper, see if Kata wants to share as he has shown interest. I have booked twin rooms for accommodation if you are happy sharing, but if you want a single room then you can book it on the link I have put up.

It would be great to see you there!!! Lets go!!! :-bd

Ash,

The hotel was http://www.hotelmila.com/default.asp?do ... idioma=ang" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

They do a good tour as well.

The motorcycle side is great but the food/accommodation was OK but didn't wow me.

So hows this working then? We book the ferry individually and book the hotel as a group?

I will look into the Hotel mate, it looks good. The one I looked at is not a bikers hotel, but it has garage,B&B, town for food, bars and has excellent reviews. Have a look and see what you think.

Just book the ferry by yourself, if you can find someone to book it with(a pair) it will be cheaper. I know Jay was thinking of coming so maybe you can book with him.

Please check your messages as I have sent you a PM.

It's Brittany Ferries. Portsmouth to Bilbao.

Tuesday 24th May 0845 from Porstsmouth
Tuesday 31st May 1030 from Bilbao
:-bd

For me and Anna, on seperate bikes, with a double cabin each way totals £561. Not too bad really.

Ferry all booked :ymparty: :D :D :D :D
Ive booked a 2 berth cabin both ways, so if anyone wants to come along they don't need to book a cabin and go 1/2's on the cabin price..

Nice one Ash. I can't commit so far ahead though I'm afraid. May join closer to the date if places are still open.
