Half term – the best value trips with AFerry.co.uk
Half-term is a little later this year as all teachers will tell you, so maybe that is why AFerry.co.uk has seen a surge in bookings as parents find more time to book half-term breaks. In fact, reservations have seen a 14% rise for the period over half term 2011.
Many of these reservations have been last minute as excellent deals come online such as Kids Go Free with Stena Line this Half-Term to Holland. This was for all bookings made for travel 15th October –4th November 2012.
Hovertravel, which operates between Ryde and Southsea is offering child places over the half-term weekends for just £1 so a few days exploring the lovely resorts of the Isle of Wight is a popular option.
On the short sea Channel crossings between Dover and Calais the fares have become extremely competitive since the addition, just a couple of months ago, of new operator MyFerryLink on the route. A day trip for a family in a car starts at just £25 per car one way with MyFerryLink (exclusive to AFerry.co.uk) and P&O. Why not take the kids over to see Nausicaa, for example, one of the best aquariums in the world?
‘ It may be that people who have stayed at home this summer to enjoy the London Olympics, the Jubilee, ParaOlympics and so on, now fancy a quick break abroad to recharge the batteries’ said Sales and Marketing Manager Kirsty Laifa ‘AFerry .co.uk are best placed to help find the best value break. There are still plenty of deals available – the prices couldn’t be better, the booking couldn’t be easier – choose AFerry.co.uk for half-term getaways.’
