Sun, sea, sail and save with Stena Line this summer

Save over €1,200* when you travel to Europe with Ireland’s leading ferry company

IRELAND’S leading ferry company is giving Irish holidaymakers even more reason to book its Landbridge fare to Europe this summer with the opportunity to save over €1,200*.

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 Wednesday July 17 and onward from Dover to Calais on for as little as €388 with no baggage restrictions or excess charges, compared to €911.92 on the same date 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 OBE, Stena Line’s Head of Communications, believes taking the car to Europe provides Irish holidaymakers with the freedom of making their holiday their own not to mention making their Euro go further.

“We have carried out a price comparison for a family of four travelling in July and found out that people who travel with us to Europe using our Landbridge fare can save up to €873* compared to people who fly. This is a huge saving which can make a big difference when planning the rest of your holiday. Holidaymakers can travel from only €125* single for a car and driver and our 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.

“Taking the car gives you the opportunity to do exactly what your family wants to do, when you like, where you like. You can travel from Dublin Port to Holyhead and stop off along the way on your journey to Dover and treat the kids to an action packed day at Alton Towers or a day exploring the sights of London – it is action packed journeys like this that make great family memories,” Diane added.

Travel with Stena Line and the fun starts as soon as you step onboard with excellent facilities including 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.

With Stena Line’s wide route network, customers can choose to travel from Dublin Port to Holyhead, Dun Laoghaire to Holyhead, Rosslare to Fishguard, Belfast to Cairnryan and Belfast to Liverpool  and onward to France, Germany, Holland, Spain and Denmark.
