Benefits of coach travel

Travelling by coach to Europe is the best way to see the sights: no waiting around in airports, no delayed trains.

Book a group of 20 or more and your coach will travel for free, plus you’ll be given a free en suite cabin for the driver, who’ll also enjoy a all-you-can-eat buffet dinner and a complimentary breakfast to help keep them refreshed and rested for the journey ahead.

Taking a coach across to Europe from the UK is a great way to explore the continent and, thanks to our daily, overnight ferry crossings, it’s convenient and great value. A ferry to Holland gives convenient access to the Netherlands, Germany, France and Belgium, as well as further afield to Scandinavia and eastern Europe.

Relax on your journey

We firmly believe that our guest’s holidays begin the moment they set foot onboard our ferries. We aim to please, and offer a variety of bars, shops and other facilities to keep everyone entertained throughout their voyage with us.

Lounge in comfort, or enjoy some live music and entertainment in a fun and friendly atmosphere at our onboard bars, with our resident band and acoustic troubadour to entertain.

We also have a range of interactive quizzes, bingo and more and even a Kidz’ Club where young buccaneers can meet our mascot, Jack the Pirate, while playing and having fun with the free children’s entertainer.
