Who is eligible to travel on staff tickets?

All DFDS employees can travel along with family or friends, according to the staff ticket scheme. There is no upper limit to how often you can travel on staff tickets; however, space is always only available as long as no space is taken from paying passengers. Once a complimentary ticket has been booked though, it is always guaranteed, and you are never on standby unless specifically stated.

If the DFDS employee does not participate in the journey the booking is no longer valid and no discounts are given to family and friends.

The previous 3-month-employment rule applying to new employees does not apply anymore.

The first cabin (only applies to Standard cabins) is free; extra cabins at fixed, reduced rates. If you are bringing along more children of your own than you can accommodate in the first cabin, you are allowed to have extra cabins free of charge.

If you want to bring along vehicles, the first vehicle is free – additional vehicles are charged at standard rates.

Terms & conditions: Please see important information regarding staff tickets on this page. For the full description of rules, regulations and fares, please read more here.

All purchases in the ship's restaurants, bars and shops are made at the stated price. Upon arrival back home the discounts are reimbursed upon showing machine stamped, specified, and coded receipts. For onboard purchases, the boarding card must be shown to the vendor, and the vendor is asked to make a "staff-receipt". These receipts cannot be used along with other discount schemes or value coupons on board.

On routes with duty-free onboard sales (Copenhagen-Frederikshavn-Oslo), 45 % of the purchases made in the ship's restaurants and bars as well as 45 % of the purchases of wine, liquor, perfume and chocolate in the shops is refunded. For purchases made in the shop of accessories, clothing etc. 30% will be refunded.

Discounts are only given on purchases for personal use made by the employee and the first adult travel companion as well as children of the employee. No onboard discounts are given to further travel companions.
