going to camp site (seaside abroad) for 1 week and then apartment for 1 week. DD 11yo is good on a bike, but DS2 7yo is not always strong to push bike. Would I take the bikes with us anyway or 3 bikes = scooter for the 7yo? or no bikes at all?

Kids always seem to use them when on campsites, plus due to the lack of traffic it's a perfect week to improve his ability on it and generally flat with very little for them to hit into if they fall or lots of grass at least

Though check your ferry crossing as if you put bikes on back or roof you then obviously change the length/height of the car

the price on ferry will depend on type of bike rack.
Mine is one thats on the back and not too high so is not much extra for the ferry.
I would definitely take the bikes. it will cost more to hire them.

Take the bikes, we regretted not taking on a recent camping trip. Kids were all cycling about and would be a good opportunity for ds to improve skills. You could always bring scooter too if there is space. They don't usually take up much
