Stena out to bag more business in summer

FERRY group Stena Line has unveiled promotions for its summer sailing schedule.

The company said that holidaymakers can save up to €600 when travelling to Europe this summer compared to flying to the destination.

In a price comparison carried out by Stena Line for a family of four going on holiday to Bordeaux, customers can travel from Dublin to Holyhead and onward from Dover to Calais for only €474 with no baggage restrictions or excess charges.

This compares to €1,051.92 charged by a major airline from Dublin to Bordeaux with an additional €160 baggage charges for luggage.
