Plane vs Ferry

Ferry vs flying: car comforts

Ferry good ideas | No comments

Picture yourself heading through the chaotic time that is airport security having arrived for your flight three hours prior to its departure. Now imagine walking around spacious shops and restaurants as you please, having your own cabin and no luggage restrictions. We know which one we prefer.

The hassle-free ferry travel with Stena Line offers travellers just that. Drivers can board the ferry with all their home comforts in tow as passengers can bring as much as they want, making it perfect for families who would have to pay extortionate prices per bag when flying.


What’s more, the shopping opportunities onboard Stena Line are vast. Those looking to grab a bargain are spoiled for choice and can save ££. Stena Line offers up to 50% off many of the onshore prices for perfumes, jewellery and travel accessories – making it excellent value and ideal for early Christmas shopping. Passengers can also enjoy a delicious meal or grab a quick bite from one of the onboard restaurants. Or for those wanting to catch the latest film there is also onboard cinema, giving guests the chance to relax and stretch their legs out with a film suitable for every member of the family. Passengers can relax in style, refresh and catch up on some sleep in one of our en-suite cabins where the mattresses are so comfortable travellers won’t want to leave!

The passport control checkpoints either side of the ferry journey could not be more straightforward. Before no time at all, holidaymakers will be in Hook of Holland and driving through the roads of The Netherlands with a 40 minute drive to The Hague or Rotterdam.
