DFDS Duty-Free Shopping Trips

DFDS: Duty-Free Shopping Day Trips to Calais and Dunkirk

Why Book a DFDS Shopping Day Trip?

We have partnered with DFDS to provide very affordable day trips by coach from Kent and London to Calais & Dunkirk. Duty-free shopping is back now that the UK is not in the single European market, and incredible deals can be found on alcohol, tobacco, perfume, toys, and much more! Travel in comfort and style with Anderson Travel to Dover, then enjoy a relaxing ferry ride across the pond to either Calais or Dunkirk (depending on which option you book) with DFDS. Gaze across the water at those famous White Cliffs as you enjoy a complimentary meal on board. You will arrive at the duty-free shop in Calais or Dunkirk hassle-free, having left your car at home, and will have plenty of time to stock up on all your favourite items at rates up to 50% less than in the UK!

Priority Treatment

Travelling with Anderson Travel/Anderson Tours, experts in passenger transport with over 30 years of experience, and DFDS, the well-established ferry operator with routes all over western and norther Europe, means you will experience a hassle-free journey and priority through border checks.

Incredible Discounts

The DFDS duty-free shops at Calais & Dunkirk offer unbeatable prices for many well-known favourites, including alcohol, Lego, confectionery, tobacco, perfumes and more. With rates up to 50% lower than found in the UK and generous alcohol and tobacco allowances (up to 200 cigarettes and 24 bottles of wine), these are bargains not to be missed!


Leaving your car at home not only means less hassle and that you can enjoy a tipple on the ferry, but is also the environmentally-friendly option. Group travel on coaches & ferries means fewer individual cars on the roads and less harmful environmental emissions.
