Affiliate Cookies

Affiliates are trade partners aimed at business marketing themselves via third party websites. This site has such a relationship and promotes certain services, namely travel via P&O Ferries, on a success-only basis (i.e. instead of paying me for displaying advertising, they pay me commissions on sales). Cookies are required to allow them to reward us partners and these cookies are provided by specialist companies (known as affiliate networks). Neither myself, the networks, or the partner advertising (in this case P&O Ferries) are able to identify you personally. I ask you to support me by allowing these cookies which ultimately help me earn a small percentage of commission which is used in the operational running costs of this website.

These affiliate cookies are provided by: TradeDoubler on behalf of P&O Ferries.
