Ferry travel becomes popular in wake of airport closures
In the wake of the volcanic ash cloud that shutdown most of Europe’s airspace for nearly a week, many people are opting to use alternative methods of travel.
A great option when air travel is not available is the many ferry services offered throughout the UK and Europe. With dozens of ferry operators to choose from, channelferries.co.uk provides convenient ticketless-travel with just a quick reservation on the site.
Twice in the past month, England and Scotland’s airports have had to shutdown because of hazardous weather conditions. Using ferries can be a convenient way to avoid long travel delays and cancellations in the face of inclement and unpredictable weather patterns. With this new website, developed by ASAP, booking ferry tickets is much easier.
Services to and from Aberdeen and Kirkwall, and Lerwick and Stromness are available for easy travel around the Scotland. Cheap ferries‘ tickets can also be secured for channel crossings to Italy, Spain and France. Several other routes are available around the UK as well as to mainland Europe.
On the site, travellers can check out the page’s comprehensive timetable to be informed as to ferry crossing times and dates by location. After selecting the appropriate route and time, visitors can then easily book ticketless-travel directly through the website.
Additionally, the site features a timetable and booking information for passage through the Eurotunnel. Travellers that prefer train transport can use the Eurotunnel as an alternative to flying or ferry crossings. Further travel information regarding departures, what items to bring and handy hints can be found in the FAQ section on the webpage.
