How do I get to the Siblu campsites?
Many people choose to drive to campsites on the continent, and you can cross the English Channel either by ferry or on the Euro Tunnel train. Siblu have teamed up with Brittany Ferries to offer a 5% discount on ferry crossings with a valid holiday booking reference. Alternatively, you could consider flying to the nearest airport and then hiring a car.
I want to take my own car abroad – what preparations do I need to make?
Let your car insurance know that you’re travelling abroad and perform any maintenance checks needed (check tyre tread and pressure, top up oil and water etc.). You will need to buy a headlight adaptor kit to drive on the Continent – these stick over part of your headlight to avoid blinding other drivers when you’re driving on the right. It is compulsory to carry a warning triangle if you are driving in Europe in case of a breakdown or accident. This must be placed 30 metres from the car to warn oncoming traffic. Hi-vis jackets for all car occupants are legally required in France and it is also compulsory to carry a breathalyzer kit in France, and single use kits can be bought at ports.
