Ferry travel equals smart travel

By Martin McAllister

A bit of free time is hard to come by these days. In fact, with work, kids and countless other life pursuits to contend with, there's seemingly no time to relax and do "nothing"; let alone take time off for a holiday. Yet the need for such free time is always there and continues to grow with the stresses of everyday life. So what can you do to remedy this seemingly endless cycle?

If you feel the need for a holiday but don't have much time to spare, then why not consider taking a short break? This inevitably means that you won't have the time to travel very far; but then again, you don't really need to visit faraway lands in order to relax and enjoy a change of scenery.

If you live in the UK, a visit to Ireland is more than manageable in terms of both distance and cost. Many people are turning to ferry travel when it comes to travelling between the UK and Ireland - and why not? Ferries offer a comfortable and fast way to travel; in fact, with no hidden charges added to the fare, ferry travel often costs less than travelling by air. Another attraction of ferry travel is the fact that there are no restrictions on the amount of baggage that passengers travelling by car are allowed to bring on-board. Moreover, travellers can easily take their cars on holiday with them, enabling the simple transport of any special holiday equipment such as surf boards or golf-clubs.

Holidaymakers can discover the treasures of Dublin, the thrills of Belfast or the charms of Wexford by travelling to Ireland via ferry. With onboard shopping, dining and entertainment, you and the kids will never have a dull moment on your ferry crossing from the UK to Ireland. Moreover, travel takes only a few hours, so you won't lose any valuable time getting to your destination.

Pick from a number of exciting locales to travel to in Ireland: dozens of daily crossings within an extensive network of routes ensures that you'll find an itinerary and a destination which suits your travel plans. You can also be sure that there are many great value fares available on ferry transport; so it simply makes sense as an ideal mode of travel. Furthermore, the earlier you book, the lower your fare will be - it's that simple.

If you're considering travelling by ferry to Ireland from the UK, there are various ferry companies which can offer you a spectacular deal on your trip. Moreover, the start of a new year means that there are many promotional fares on offer. Stena Line, for example, offer deals on combined ferry & hotel trips and day excursions; so whether you plan to travel to Ireland from Fleetwood, Fishguard, Holyhead or Stranraer, rest assured that there's a remarkable deal in store for you.

So take advantage of ferry travel to Ireland today - with so many benefits, you'll see just why millions of people choose this fantastic mode of travel each year.
