Ferry Travel in Europe - Guest Post

This is a guest post written by Sana. Her bio is at the end of the article.

Find the Best Travelling Option to Visit Continental Europe
The port of Dover in the UK is the gateway to the continental Europe and so, is served by most of the UK’s leading ferry operators offering competitive prices to travel with the cross Channel ferries. There are many other convenient routes and options to sail through the continent which are also included in this piece of discussion.

The most important destination on the other side of the Channel is France, which is a perfect gateway to explore the other European countries and so is the popular route to travel from the UK. Every year millions of travellers from the UK travel with ferry to France and arrive at the famous French ports of Calais and Dunkirque to proceed towards their desired destinations on the continental Europe. Norfolkline ferries operating on Dover to Dunkerque along with P&O Ferries and SeaFrance on the Dover to Calais are among the most popular ferry operators on this route. The modern fleets and State of the art ferries, frequent sailings, convenient time schedules and cheap prices have made travelling from Dover a unique and attractive option that really appeals.

Another popular way to travel between the UK and France is Eurotunnel operating from Folkestone to Calais. Eurotunnel provides innovative and speedy service to the passengers crossing the Channel to France with their personal vehicles within 40 minutes. They just need to drive on, relax for a while and then ultimately access the excellent motorway network of France to drive through the continent. Then there is P and O Ferries from Hull, DFDS Seaways ferries from Newcastle and Harwich or Stena Line ferries for all those people travelling from the Midlands or the North.

Travellers to Western France and Spain should find the modern fleets of Brittany Ferries a very good option to travel comfortably in style. They also offer a choice of routes for the particular destinations. P and O Irish Sea ferries on the other hand offers great deals on ferry crossings between the UK, Ireland and Scotland and to access the Channel Islands Condor Ferries will be the ideal option. People on their vacations love to experience modern ferry travel as they can start enjoying their trip as soon as they board the ferries. With a wide and unique range of facilities and services offered by each of these operators, ferry travel is attracting tourists like never before.

I love ferry travel on my vacations, particularly to visit France or any other popular destinations across the continent. I like to share my travel experiences with all so that it could help you in planning your vacations with ferry to France or any other location. My intention is to provide you reliable information about the important routes on the Channel, the cheap ferries operating on these routes and the facilities offered by them.
