The easiest way, which I have used on Firefox, IE and Chrome is to download and use CCleaner. Works a treat.

Dave Fox you must be reading posts on here that I cannot see! No BF bashing whatsoever. The original poster was happy to save money compared with a previous trip. Anonymous and I just gave tips on how to get the best deal you can.

Enough of BF knocking please. We have tried all the other alternatives to get to Brittany but BF knocks spots off them all. Went to America on Virgin, a class act.  BF are also class act and offer a really good service, we have a regular user card and think that the standard of service and price is excellent. Try flying on cheap airlines and you really have to have something to moan about!!

Good to hear some people are learning how to play the game.  Clearing all cookies before visiting the BF site is just one way to save.  They seem to think that if you visit several times you must be out looking for alternative prices.  If you notice the prices are rising you will pay before they get any higher.  Also it is common knowledge that the further ahead you do the booking the cheaper the price.  During the last few weeks the price for the same crossing can double or more.  They must think we are desperate.

Tongsaibay, well done! Over the years we've found out that prices vary for unknown reasons. I found out that clearing out the BF cookie from my computer before doing subsequent checks is profitable. Don't know why but it works for me! I've forgotten the name of the practice which has always been used by airlines for booking. Something to do with how well sales are going. Not much selling, drop the price enough to get folk interested. Sales going well maintain or nudge your prices up slightly.
