A motley crew of British characters ride the San Ferry Ann to the shores of France where they embark on a weekend of calamity.

A campervan family led by Dad and Mum (David Lodge and Joan Sims) create chaos from the moment they set their tyres on the shore resulting in frequent run-ins with the Gendarmerie. Lewd Grandad (Wilfrid Brambell) finds his own misadventures with a newly acquainted friend, a crazy German ex-soldier (Ron Moody).

Also aboard for the ride is a saucy hitchhiker (Barbara Windsor), who causes a few heads to turn including that of a fellow traveller (Ronnie Stevens) who pursues her affection with comic results.
