Ferry Hull to Rotterdam costs

This is possible with an ideal booking in the low season, which you then calculate back to ‘per person. In reality, however, you will notice that this is not a very realistic price because of this ferry's high demand and popularity; the cheapest tickets are often gone quickly.

A single trip is usually much more expensive, and for a return trip with a family of 4 (two adults, two kids) with a car, you will quickly pay around €558. You will get two nights on board for this and no longer have to rent/book at the location.

Generally, the earlier you book, the cheaper it is. In addition, there are sometimes offers that you can take advantage of.
