Jump onboard a ferry this National Ferry Fortnight – 14 to 28 May 2011
It’s the natural way to travel!
10 Ferry good reasons to get onboard:
Ferry refined…Ferry companies have invested millions of pounds to ensure that your holiday starts the minute you get onboard. With more than 40 million passenger journeys made by ferry every year and a billion pounds of investment, ferry travel has never been so relaxing, accessible and easy. Ferries boast an impressive array of onboard facilities from shopping and dining to entertainment for children. For longer journeys facilities include luxury en-suite cabins, cinemas, night clubs, spas, gyms, shows and bars.
Ferry speedy…With check-in times from just 30 minutes you can avoid long winded security check-in procedures. Simply drive on and relax onboard with a good choice of dining options, good choice of shopping and play areas before driving off refreshed and ready to enjoy your trip.
Ferry versatile…Taking a ferry means no baggage restrictions and no excess baggage charges which means that you really can pack everything, including the kitchen sink! Perfect for those who want to take bikes, golf clubs or surfboards with them or those who can’t resist a spot of shopping on the way back.
Ferry civilised…Ferry travel has come on in leaps and bounds – and if you haven’t been on one for a while, you are in for a wonderful surprise. Relax in stylish lounges, chic cabins and café lounges and enjoy menus created by top chefs.
Ferry economical…You may think that flying is the cheapest way to travel: That isn’t always the case. Book your ferry trip online and as early as possible to benefit from great value prices – from as little as a pound a mile between the UK and France for a family of four with a car. Or why not travel with a group of friends? European festivals are right on your doorstep and ferry operators can arrange packages including campsites, cottages and self-catering accommodation.
Ferry flexible…With a choice of fares options from economy to premium, ferry travel offers much more for less. Check-in and travel policies are flexible and for those needing to make a quick getaway why not try priority loading which ensures you are first on and first off.
Ferry liberating…With your bike, car or caravan, the world really is your oyster by ferry. Exciting destinations within the British Isles and further afield on the Continent await and with your own wheels you have the chance to explore hidden gems that are off the beaten-track.
Ferry refreshing…Free yourself onboard a ferry – not at the mercy of a seatbelt light or squashed into a small seat you can roam freely enjoying the fresh sea air on deck or stretch out in generously spaced seating around the ship. We are after all an island nation so whether you are sampling the delights of Continental Europe or Scandinavia or rediscovering the treasures which are closer to home – there really is something for everyone.
Ferry friendly…why not try holidaying at home – a trip to the Isle of Man or Scottish Isles means that Fido, Rover or Sooty can come too. Or if you wish to travel to the continent the family pets don’t have to be left at home for the holidays. If they have a pet passport (for travel outside of the UK) then they are welcome on board many of the ferry operators’ routes. You’ll even find many pet friendly hotels, B&B’s and campsites at your destination.
