P&O Ferries Cuts Prices for Euro 2016 Football Fans by £50

P&O Ferries is cutting prices by £50 for all football fans planning to travel to the continent for the biggest sporting event of 2016. P&O has made the offer to celebrate the first ever occasion on which both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland have qualified for a major football tournament.

Neal Mernock, Sector Director on the Irish Sea, said: “We are the only ferry company in Europe that has routes across both the Irish Sea and the English Chanel. The offer we are launching today gives football fans the opportunity to travel on our route from Larne to Cairnryan in Scotland and then down to France via Dover and Calais.

“There is no more enjoyable and relaxing way to travel than by ferry and once you arrive on the continent you have the freedom to explore France in your car. On behalf of everyone at P&O Ferries, I would like to wish both the Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland teams the best of luck and I am sure that the supporters who follow them will have a memorable summer holiday regardless.”

P&O Ferries’ discount applies from 8th June to 12th July 2016 and is applicable on the Larne–Cairnryan and Dover-Calais routes. It is valid for long breaks only (i.e. more than five days) and both the Irish Sea and English Channel journeys must be booked at the same time. Visit www.poferries.com/euro2016 for more details.
