When travelling on ferries you might be concerned about the facilities on board, especially if you are travelling for over a day. The overwhelming majority of ferry operators have constructed their ships to take care of their passengers which means that they automatically cater for the disabled, those of reduced mobility, small children and babies. This includes accessibility to cabins and cots for babies. The important thing to remember, especially with overnight ferry crossings, is that you call ahead to see whether the ferry operator can accommodate you. It may be that the ferry operator already has adapted rooms fully booked or they may not be able to offer certain facilities on board the ship. Unfortunately, this can’t be helped on some ferry crossings, but the vast majority of regular crossings should be able to offer you all of the accessibility you would expect from a modern ship.
There are no restrictions on how you travel on a ferry. This means that if you are a foot passenger, you should be able to book your ferry tickets just like everybody else. The AFerry.co.uk website should be able to offer you an option for those who wish to travel by foot. The same also goes for those with a bicycle, although if you have more than one bicycle, each will need to be checked in separately.
When booking your ferry tickets it is important to remember that prices for ferries fluctuate like they would for a hotel. The nearer you get to the date of travel, the more likely it is to fluctuate in different ways. This is why it is often important to plan your trip well in advance and book as early as you can because as you get nearer to the travel date, the price will more than likely increase. This could well save you a lot of money.
