Maybe you’ve never taken the ferry before, or it’s been many years since your last ferry trip. There are lots of great reasons why you should take the ferry.

  1. Pack your bags and go! Whether you’re driving your car, riding your bike or travelling as a foot passenger, going by ferry is an easy way to travel.
  2. Take as much luggage as you want. Pack your vehicle with everything you need or just wheel on your bicycle. Bring back the local goodies you loved, to share with friends and family.
  3. Enjoy the journey as much as the destination. Get some fresh air on deck, have a wander around the ship, do a bit of shopping and grab a bite to eat.
  4. Know the little ones will be entertained. Most ships offer kids areas where they can play, watch a movie and generally be entertained.
  5. Relax. Enjoy having your own space and time to do what you want. You can even upgrade for a little bit extra to enjoy a premium lounge experience with complimentary drinks and snacks.
  6. Bring your furry friends. No need to leave your pets at home, bring them on board too. Ferries offer a range of pet-friendly cabins, on board kennels, stay-in-vehicle and pet lounge options depending on the sailing.
  7. Spot the marine life. The waters around the British Isles are a great place to spot sea birds, dolphins, porpoises and even whales. Some ferry companies work with conservation charity ORCA and have Wildlife Officers on board who can help you on a deck watch.
  8. Together time. Whether you’re travelling as a couple, in a group or as a family, you can sit together comfortably, have a drink and a chat or play a game.
  9. Stay connected. Take advantage of the on board wifi to stay connected, post your selfies, catch up on emails or just browse the internet.
  10. Value for money. Travelling by ferry offers great value for money, especially when you consider there are no extra costs for seating, luggage or car hire.
