Sail and Save Up to €600 to Europe

In a price comparison carried out by Stena Line for a family of four going on holiday to Bordeaux, customers can travel from Dublin to Holyhead and onward from Dover to Calais for only €474 with no baggage restrictions or excess charges, compared to €1,051.92 charged by a major airline from Dublin to Bordeaux with an additional €160 baggage charges for luggage. Further savings can be made by customers travelling by ferry as they will have no airport parking, check-in charges or car hire.

Diane Poole, Stena Line’s Head of Communications, said: “In recent years, more and more people are seeing the benefits of taking their car on holiday with them. We recently carried out a price comparison and found out that people who travel with us to Europe using our Landbridge fare can save up to €600 compared to people who fly, which goes a long way when paying for the rest of the holiday.

“The price difference is no surprise really when you consider the additional charges that soon mount up when flying, such as baggage charges, check-in charges, airport parking and car hire.

“Taking the car provides you with the flexibility of designing your own holiday as you can explore Europe at your leisure, stopping off when and where you choose. It’s the perfect way for families to travel as children don’t have to be strapped in for long periods of time, as they can make the most of the excellent onboard facilities that include children’s play areas, free onboard movies, free wi-fi and, not to be left out, adults can relax in one of our restaurants or bars.

“Starting from only €115 single for a car and driver, Stena Line’s Landbridge fare provides Irish holidaymakers with their own route to Europe in just two easy crossings, offering them hundreds of fantastic holiday destinations to choose from.”

Stena Line customers can travel from Dublin Port to Holyhead, Dun Laoghaire to Holyhead (seasonal service from 22nd March – 10th September), Rosslare to Fishguard, Belfast to Cairnryan, and Belfast to Liverpool – and onward to France, Germany, Holland, Spain and Denmark.
