Young couple Timothy (Leslie Phillips) and Deirdre (Shirley Eaton) plan a romantic weekend on the coast in a caravan, called "Lulu", owned by the brother of their pal Fred (Bob Monkhouse) and which Fred will tow with his ice cream van, as he will be working selling ice cream over the weekend. When Deidre's mother (Irene Handl) insists on going along as her daughter's chaperone, Timothy's plans are somewhat compromised. Then a train ferry mix-up lands the holidaymakers deep in France without passports or money. As they try to get back to England, they encounter a variety of problems, and end up being pursued across country by the French police.
