Bristow v Deller darts challenge on P&O Ferries to Spain

In 1980 'The Crafty Cockney' Bristow first won the World darts title, only for baby-faced Deller to beat Bristow by six sets to five in 1983, becoming the youngest World Champion ever. Deller also holds the record for the fastest game ever, scoring 301 in just 97 seconds.

The pair will be the star turn for a special Darts Challenge mini cruise on board the cruise ferry Pride of Bilbao sailing from Portsmouth for Bilbao on the evening of Saturday 17 October. The itinerary for the three-night mini cruise gives time for a shore excursion in Spain, with popular options including the Guggenheim gallery, the old city of Bilbao, and the fishing village of Castro Urdiales. And facilities on board the ferries to Spain include cinemas, shops, bars, restaurants and live shows.

So visit the P&O Ferries page on the Drive-Alive website and book a ferry crossing to Spain with the prospect of some great "arrows" to enjoy en-route.

Fuel prices in Europe

We have just published our latest survey of petrol and diesel prices in European countries. It is difficult to keep up to date with the rapid changes in fuel prices, so please treat this as a guide to the cost of petrol and diesel, not the actual prices. The prices for petrol and diesel are reasonably accurate as at the end of August 2009.

We publish this guide to the cost of fuel in Europe as a service to our users and we hope you find it gives a useful indication as to which country to fill up in when driving abroad to achieve the best prices. We try and update it about once every three months.
