Cheapest Ferry to Tunisia for a 4x4

Howdy folks

For future info

Have just scored a ferry crossing from Rome to Tunisia for €340 - includes 1 passenger, 1 Landcruiser (AKA - a van - upto 6M in length) and a bed.

From these boyz:
Grimaldi Lines.

Had been getting quoted anything from €1100 to €600 from various operators and from various ports. Some operators penalised 4x4's and longer/larger vehicles more than others. Some sites were in Italian only and were difficult to navigate.

Grimaldi came up trumps in this instance.

Cheers

Niallo

Jammy b@@ger! I did the Genoa to Tunis trip in March 2007 with a Landcruiser 80 series and paid GBP 340 with no bed.

Well done!
