|10th October 2013 – As 2013 teeters towards a finale, AFerry.co.uk is pleased to announce record sales this year to date. Sales have been particularly strong on the short sea channel crossings between Dover and Calais with an increase of more than 10X%.
‘We are really pleased with the growth of the company this year’, said UK Head of Sales Kirsty Laifa. ‘We offer the very best deals all in one place and some of the most affordable prices on add-on accommodation, as well as ease of access through our compare functionality, so when the consumer is looking to book a break away, our site is naturally a great place to start to hunt the best deal down and this is reflected in the bookings surge. Clients find how easy the ‘one-stop shop’ site is to use and navigate. They can compare all offers live at any time – so naturally they return to us the next time they travel.’
The winter months do bode well also. Laifa predicts an increase in self-drive ski and short break holidays where AFerry is particularly well placed, thanks to having good winter ferry offers and fares, and working with some of the top holiday providers in the UK. The growth will be due to skiers and snowboarders economising. They will not forgo their ski break, just look at more cost effective ways to travel. A short break by car is a really inexpensive way to travel abroad especially with the low tariffs on Dover – Calais crossings this winter.
Already 2014 promises to continue this positive trend. Early booking offers are already up on the site, which is especially interesting for customers thinking of the longer, pricier crossings from the UK. As the Port of Dover invests £85million in their Traffic Management Improvement Project then cross Channel ferry travel will get even easier and smoother as a customer experience and thus a further increase in business is expected next year.
