I call on you guys to give me some info about taking a car by ferry to Algeria for holidays, as I intend to do this October.

- Is it better to sail from Spain (Alicante) to Oran, or from France (Marseilles)? There is about 300 euros difference, but a lot less driving if coming from Britain!

- Do ferries service Algeria ALL YEAR ROUND ? Or are they seasonal?

- I have noticed that ferries don't run everyday.

- Any experience, feedback, anecdotes will be welcome.

_ I am told that some ferries are oversuscribed at the peak of summer by Algerian expats goins home on holidays. Is that right?

- Any problem with customs if you bring a foreign car? Mine will be GB plated.

- Any tips?
