    #2 Ferries are spacious and comfortable

    While a plane used to be comfortable: The last years it gets closer and closer to a bus-experience. On a ferry you instantly have the space you need: There is always space on the upper deck. You don’t need to rush, you can walk and sit in restaurants freely! And let’s not even get started about the amenities on board:

    • Many ferries feature Wi-Fi, entertainment options, and children’s play areas.
    • Access to outdoor decks, bars, and scenic viewing points greatly enhances the travel experience.

    Let’s be clear: Avoiding travel altogether and opting for bridges or tunnels (where available) will be much more environmentally friendly.

    But… if you want to travel and if you want to have a nice experience:

    • Ferries generally have a lower carbon footprint compared to airplanes.
    • Modern ferries are increasingly adopting green technologies, such as cleaner fuel and energy-efficient designs.
    • Especially the Nordic countries (Denmark & Norway) are frontrunners with greener and more sustainable ferries.

    #4 Your holiday starts the moment you board the ferry

    Traveling by ferry isn’t just a means to an endβ€”it’s an integral part of your vacation experience. It’s the perfect start to a memorable holiday.

    An air hockey match against your kids might just be the perfect start of your holiday!

    And… That’s not the only thing! Most ferry terminals are located or connected to the city center in a convenient way. Ever been to Londen Heathrow for example? That’s not something that you encounter with ferries!

    #5 And probably the best reason: you can take your car with you!

    One of the best advantages of ferry travel is the ability to bring your own vehicle. Whether it’s a car, camper, or motorcycle, having your transportation means you can explore your destination at your own pace and convenience.

    So you can avoid the costs of the rental company and you don’t have to walk around with suitcases, since they can simply stay in the car all the way to your destination! (of even better: multiple destinations!)

    To conclude

    And this is just only 5 reasons, there are so much more. Just imagine the line by the toilet in a plane against a the 100s of toilets (you can even have your own in your cabin) on the larger ferries.
