Stena Line Students Go Free Campaign

Stena Line Students Go Free Campaign

For the seventh year, Stena Line is running its Students Go Free campaign that has proved successful not only with students but also with parents, who are able to accompany their ‘child’ to ensure the university term gets off to a good start.

With the Leaving Cert results just out and the number of Irish students choosing to study at universities throughout Britain increasing every year, Stena Line is continuing to experience a high demand for good value fares at this time of year said Communications Manager Eamonn Hewitt. 

“It doesn’t matter if a child is starting university for the first time or returning for the new term, it is always a stressful time for families. We are conscious that students leaving the nest can find the new situation very overwhelming and we hope that by parents travelling with them, it will help make settling in that little bit easier.

“One adult can travel on any of Stena Line’s five Irish Sea routes from as little as €79* single and bring a car full of students for free, as well as everything needed for university life including suitcases of clothes, textbooks, TVs – even the kitchen sink! Due to the great savings this offer provides, there is huge demand so I would encourage students and their families to book as soon as possible to take advantage of this great offer.”

Students not travelling by car can also take advantage of Stena Line’s Sail & Rail fare from only €35** per person single. There are lots of final destinations on offer including London, Liverpool, Manchester, Birmingham, Leeds, London, Newcastle and Cardiff, making it an easy way for students to travel. 

This offer is available on all of Stena Line’s routes to Britain – Dublin Port to Holyhead, Dun Laoghaire to Holyhead, Rosslare to Fishguard, Belfast to Liverpool (Birkenhead) and Belfast to Stranraer.

* Price quoted is based on a single mid-week travel from 1st September 2011 to 16th October 2011. Subject to availability. Terms and conditions apply.

** Valid for single ferry and rail travel from Dublin to Bangor.
