Driving to Spain, looking to share costs

I'm looking to drive from the Peak District to Spain on December 3rd. This is dependent on the UK and French lockdowns not being extended, obviously. I'm staying in Spain for the time being so I can only offer a trip one way.

Costs are £81 for the ferry (Newhaven to Dieppe) and about £190 for the diesel (to La Pedriza near Madrid). These costs will be split between two of us.

The van is small but I'm happy to top and tail the bed for an overnight stop.

Please no snarky or aggressive comments... Ta!

Where to? Planned journey duration Inc kip stops? Presumably avoiding péage?

Cheaper by train for lone travellers but might be willing to chip in for the adventure...

Hi Mike.

Sorry can't share cost. But I too am planning on driving down that way sometime after lockdown. Maybe we could hit up some crags on the way down?

Apparently u need a negative Covid test going into Spain now. Also heard u might need a 'proper' reason to be traveling over borders. Have u heard of any of this.

Back in March April you could only cross France - Spain borders with a travel to work permit, which was for border locals mainly.

How fresh does the covid test need to be?

You can currently only travel in France with a valid reason, otherwise you risk a fine from the police. If we leave the house we need to carry a signed attestation saying why we are out. And with French police being lazy, checking attestations is easy police work for them, so they are hot on it. It is also rumoured that lock down will continue past the 1st December until closer to Christmas.
