WITH the Euro at its best rate in more than three years, Stena Line has experienced an increased interest in its Landbridge bookings to Europe this summer and the leading ferry company is reminding customers they can save over £800 in travel before they arrive on the continent.
In a price comparison carried out by Stena Line for a family of four going on holiday to Disneyland, Paris, customers can travel from Belfast to Cairnryan and onward from Dover to Calais by car from only £406* with no baggage restrictions or excess charges, compared to £905 charged by a major airline from Belfast to Paris with an additional £92* baggage charges for luggage.
Further savings can be made by customers travelling by Stena Line as they will have no airport parking, check–in charges or car hire which in total represents a massive £839 saving.* Savings of more than £640 can also be made with Stena Line in comparison to travelling by direct ferry service with another ferry operator via Rosslare to Roscoff.*
Stena Line’s Head of PR and Communications, Diane Poole OBE, believes the ferry company’s Landbridge fare is a very cost–effective way to holiday abroad this year and is urging customers in Northern Ireland to make the most of the strong pound.
“People work long and hard and look forward to their summer holidays, and with the Euro at its best rate in more than three years, travelling by Landbridge is a great solution for a stress free holiday. In the recent price comparison we carried out, customers can take advantage of savings of over £800* over people who fly.
“By taking the car customers can bring all the luggage they need for their summer vacation and won’t have to worry about any additional charges involved with flying such as baggage charges, check–in charges, airport parking and car hire.
“Taking the ferry also means you won’t have to wait around the airport for two hours before your flight as you only need to be at the ferry terminal 30 minutes before departure ensuring customers don’t have airport stress with children to entertain.
“The fun starts as soon as customers step onboard,” says Diane, “younger children will be kept entertained in the soft play adventure areas and may even bump into regular Stena Line passenger Curious George, whilst older children can watch the latest film release in the cinema and not to be left out, adults can relax in one of our fantastic restaurants or bars. Once arriving in Britain you can stop at attractions along the way such as Legoland or Alton Towers or perhaps visit friends or relatives in Britain, making the journey an exciting part of the holiday.”
With Stena Line’s wide route network, customers can choose to travel from Belfast to Cairnryan, Belfast to Liverpool, Dublin Port to Holyhead, Dun Laoghaire to Holyhead, Rosslare to Fishguard and onward to France, Germany, Holland, Spain and Denmark.
