  1. The high ticket price is probably a combination of factors. Short crossings are generally more expensive because they’re less efficient. That it’s an electric ferry will also play its part in the pricing. It’s however just somewhat cheaper than the crossing by the bridge. The fact that it’s an international crossing between two countries will also pump up the price a bit. We will look into this a bit more and get back to you.

  2. Hi Very Snowy!

    Thanks for your question, in this article you can find more info on the ferry from Newcastle to Norway: https://ferrygogo.com/plans-for-ferry-between-newcastle-and-norway-in-2026/

    So as you can read here: https://bergencruiseline.no/ it seems that is a plan in progress, but sailings will only start in 2026.

    Best regards,

  3. Hi Sarah,

    We also checked, I think the sailing schedule for Q4 for the ferries still have to be made. When we check Virtu Ferries we can’t use the booking engine from October onwards yet. Should be available shortly.

    Best regards,

  4. Hi Stacey,

    Thanks for the question and we assume you meant 2024: for the dog you’ll find more information on this specific page of the company: Spirit of Tasmania: https://www.spiritoftasmania.com.au/terms-and-conditions/pets-and-kennels
    and on this page you can find more information about the weight, height and price of bringing a caravan to Tasmania: https://www.spiritoftasmania.com.au/sailing-fares/fares-explained

  5. Hi Silvia,

    Thanks for your question. We’re sorry to inform you that there are no direct ferries from Stockholm to the UK. On this page you can find the information needed, vice versa though: https://ferrygogo.com/ferry-to-sweden-from-uk/. The ferry from Nynashamn to Gdansk might be a good fit. Or drive back to Trelleborg in Southern Sweden and take the ferry to Rostock with Stena Line: https://ferrygogo.com/route/trelleborg-rostock/

    Hope this helps.

  6. Hi Karen!

    It looks like this is possible with the https://www.aeroe-ferry.dk/en aroe ferry. You can travel from Fynshavn to Aero and from Aero to Langeland by ferry and a car.

    Hope this works

  7. Hi Dianne,

    Thank you for getting in touch. We’re not Brittany Ferries, but we strive to provide a comprehensive overview of available routes and considerations. You can find all the information regarding Club Voyage on this page at Brittany Ferries. Club Voyage Benefits.

    We couldn’t find any information about prioritized arrangements for bringing your cat onboard as part of the Club Voyage membership.

    You probably found the information on pet friendly cabins already, but if not you can find it here:

    Have a good trip!

  8. Hello Jordan,

    We perate as an informative ferry portal, so the ferries themselves are not under our ownership. However, almost all ferries from Wales to Ireland accommodate cars. It’s advisable to book in advance to secure a spot on the parking deck.

    Let me know if you have any remaining questions.

  9. Hi Clair
    In most cases you can take a motorhome on the ferry. On the Calmac website you’ll find more info here: https://www.calmac.co.uk/article/8251/What-information-do-I-need-to-be-aware-of-prior-to-taking-a-caravan-motorhome-campervan-or-boat-on-a-trailer-onto-our-ferries. Often this is a bit pricier than travelling by car, but we couldn’t find the exact prices.

    Did you figure it out already yourself? And if so, we would be happy to know!

    Best regards and happy travels!

  10. Hi Kenneth,

    That would be the Dover to Calais crossing – approx 90 mins.

  11. Hi Fredrik,

    Quite late but thanks for your comment – there have been crossings in the past: https://ferrygogo.com/historic-ferry-crossings-uk-scandinavia/ and there are plans for a direct crossing in the near future again. We really hope a ferry from the UK to Norway will return too, especially since the ferry from the Netherlands to Norway ceased to exist as well.

  12. Hi Neil,

    Glad we could be of help with our guides! Have fun on your fishing holiday. Happy travels

  13. Hi Christine,

    Thanks for your question. There are 3 different options: Fishguard-Rosslare, Holyhead-Dublin and Pembroke-Rosslare. The price really depends on dates and which ferry you’ll take. Stena Line has a really helpful low fare calendar. In the booking module of Stena Line just under the dates you can use this option. If it’s a short stay, you’ll also get a short stay discount. So for example if you will sail from Wales to Ireland on the 18th and sail back on the 20th you’ll pay around 107 pound for a return ticket or 2 persons on the Holyhead-Dublin route. Fishguard Rosslare is exactly the same price. Pembroke Rosslare is just a bit more expensive on a short break for 2 persons without a car: 114 pounds. So the routes from Stena Line seem just a bit cheaper on these specific date. But I would recommend to use the low fare calendar and check yourself.

    Best regards,

  14. Hi Sue,

    Thanks for your question. It depends a bit on the route and the specific boat. With Stena Line for example you can book a pet cabin. And the rules are different per ferry.

    On Stena Adventurer (Holyhead – Dublin) and on Stena Nordica (Fishguard – Rosslare), pets must remain in their cabins for the duration of the crossing. All pet owners must clean up after their pets both in the cabins and on the decks. For example: Pets travelling on Stena Edda (Liverpool – Belfast), Stena Embla (Liverpool – Belfast), Stena Estrid (Holyhead – Dublin), Stena Horizon (Cherbourg – Rosslare) and Stena Vision (Cherbourg – Rosslare) can get fresh air, exercise and toilet breaks in a dedicated area on the outside deck. Pets must remain on a non-retractable lead. You can also book pet friendly cabins. For Irish Ferries you can find more about the rules on this page for the route from Pembroke to Rosslare.

    https://www.irishferries.com/uk-en/frequently-asked-questions/top-10-faqs/pets-ireland-britain-routes/

    Long story short: you can travel by ferry from the UK to Ireland while walking the dog with for example Stena Line on the route from Holyhead to Dublin and Fishguard to Rosslare and Liverpool Belfast.

    Hope this helps.

  15. Hi Larry,

    Thanks for the question. A lot of the ferries from the UK to Northwestern Europe have ceased operations in the past 20 years. Mainly due to a combination of additional environmental & fuel legislation and low-cost airlines. We do however see greener passenger ferries emerge and a renewed interest in sailing from the UK to Germany and Scandinavia. Hopefully this leads to re-establishing a new ferry to Northwestern europe from the UK. You can also find more about the disappearance of ferries between the UK, Germany & Scandinavia here: https://ferrygogo.com/historic-ferry-crossings-uk-scandinavia/

    In the meantime you could use the ferries from and travel from there to Germany. From most of the Dutch (Holland) ports, you’ll be in Germany in about 2 hours driving.

    Newcastle to Amsterdam
    Hull to Rotterdam
    Harwich to Hook of Holland
    Dover to Calais.

    Hope this helps and answers your question.

  16. Hi J Lapinskas,

    It seems to some of the schedules for May 2024 are already available, you can find more information on the exact dates and times in this table:https://www.virtuferries.com/schedule/6

    Let me know if you have any remaining questions!

    Best, JW

  19. Hi Erik,

    Best regards,

    Jan Willem – FerryGoGo

  20. Hi Bernard,

    Thanks for sharing your experience with this trip. For your information: the ferry company that sails to Iceland, Faroer and Denmark is callled Smyril Line.

  21. Hi Mateo,

    Thank you for your response! Renting at the location can be more cost-effective than bringing your own car on board, especially on a short trip. As for rental cars, insurance is typically included in most cases, and it’s also usually possible to upgrade the insurance.
