As years have gone by, ferry travel has dramatically increased in popularity, especially with people who want to travel for as little as possible but still have the same degree of comfort and reliability. For generations, ferries have lived somewhat in the shadows of airline travel and have often struggled to compete in terms of travel times and attention grabbing low-cost deals – all that seems to be changing however. With many staff strikes and rising fuel costs hitting the aviation industry hard, ferry companies are starting to come to the fore and see some good news emerge from a bad situation.
Many Britons that have visited France will have travelled there by ferry as it is not only one of the cheapest ways to get there, but one of the quickest too. Despite good deals and great travel times however, it has to be said that one of the best reasons to travel by ferry is the quality of travel that you get. Most of the time ferries have to compete with no frills airlines in terms of offering the cheapest deals for passengers, however, when it comes to quality of ride and what is on offer, there is no comparison.
More and more people are beginning to see ferries as a real, viable alternative to airline travel and are often shocked by how pleasant the ferry is and the quality of it in terms of functionality and comfort. In terms of popularity, it looks like ferries are on the up and up.
