Tips on Finding Cheap Ferry Tickets

  2. Travel Midweek - Book your ferry crossing between Sunday-Thursday, and you will have a greater chance of receiving cheap ferry tickets.
  3. Travel Low Season - By travelling in the off peak seasons, January-March & October-December, ferry tickets will tend to be lower because fewer people are travelling on our ferries. If you combine this with travelling midweek then you are more likely to find the cheapest ferry tickets.
