Students Travel Savings

Budget travel Travel Tips | No comments

Travel especially for students can be expensive, when you factor in, fares, accommodation, food and additional transport links, it can all start to add up. Check out our alternative way to save on travel to Europe:

Stena Line’s UK to Holland sailing route takes you on a direct crossing from Harwich International port in Essex to the Hook of Holland, Netherlands port. Students can take this direct route to Holland though it may not be as quick as flying it could help save on a few of the extra expenses (plus you get to enjoy all the cool extras onboard). Save on luggage costs, hotel, food, entertainment and avoid delayed flights.


Pre-Book It & Save!

Road trips with a group is a great way to save and explore: Fares for a passenger plus a car one way start from just £59 or £38.50 for foot passengers, this means your holiday doesn’t have to stop in Holland, you and your friends could take a short drive to Germany, Belgium, France or even Scandinavia! Simply add on the additional passengers with your car booking at fantastic prices, load up your car with all your essentials (including liquids) and drive to Holland or onwards through Europe with a group booking plus your student discount when you have a valid account with Student Beans.

Booking a cabin means you save on a hotel stay! Hotels in Holland can fetch a pretty penny because of major European attractions in cities like Amsterdam, Rotterdam and The Hague. Booking a sailing with our 10% off student discount on fares and avoiding the additional nights in a hotel by adding a cabin can help save the bulk of accommodation costs – Prices start from only £34 per cabin!

Split the cost of a cabin with your travel partner which would bring the cost down to only £17 per night per person. For a weekend trip you pay for the cabin for the Friday arrive in Holland in the morning only pay for Saturday night hotel stay in one of Hollands magical cities then sail home Sunday night, sleep onboard and arrive Monday morning ready for the week! The cabins are like a hotel room at sea, complete with a TV, Swedish designed beds, en suite and mini bar in select cabins.

With the time you have onboard you could even squeeze in a study session if you fancied it before starting your European escape – Find WIFI on main deck* as well as cafes, seating areas, a computer study area or why not just relax and catch up with your travel buddies in the café or by the bar, your holiday starts as soon as you step foot onboard.
