Irish Ferries: 50 per cent up for Easter, and no baggage charges

Irish Ferries expects to carry 50 per cent more passengers on its ferry services between the UK and Ireland over Easter than at the same time last year.

“An early Easter, and great weather over the last couple of weeks means that ferry and holiday bookings are off to a great start,” says Irish Ferries’ head of passenger sales Declan Mescall.

And as data published by price comparison website Kelkoo reveals airlines will charge British holidaymakers almost £1 million in excess baggage charges every day this summer*, Irish Ferries is highlighting its own ‘no baggage charges’ policy.

“None of our passengers heading to Ireland this year will pay a penny in baggage charges, whether they’re filling the boot of the car with everything including the kitchen sink, or travelling as foot-passengers,” says Mescall.
