Why take a ferry to Poland?

The ferry port in Holland (Ijmuiden) is close to Amsterdam where there are direct train services to Szczecin in Poland. It is also easy to travel to Poland with your car, as there are good motorways and main roads. It take about 12 hours to drive from Amsterdam to Warsaw travelling through beautiful German and Polish countryside on route. The price for car plus two passengers onboard the ferry to Amsterdam is from only £149 one way.

No baggage restrictions.

It is far easier to travel to Poland by ferry with your car than choosing to fly, because you can relax as soon as you drive onboard the ferry. There are no baggage restrictions which means you can take as much luggage as you like, and no hidden costs. The ferry crossings are overnight and whilst onboard you can enjoy a meal in our restaurants, a drink in the bar or watch the live entertainment. At the end of the night a comfortable en-suite cabin awaits you.

This ensures that you awake refreshed the next day ready to continue on your onward journey to Poland.
