Leading travel comparison site travelsupermarket.com has launched a new ferry offering allowing visitors to search for ferry options in and out of the UK as well as within Europe.
travelsupermarket.com has partnered with market leaders aferry.com, part of the Travel Gateway, to provide an easy to use, content rich comparison service.
The new ferry section on the site includes a range of helpful advice, guides, maps of various ports around the UK and Europe as well as a tips and deals section.
Bob Atkinson, travel expert from travelsupermarket.com, said: "Ferry comparison is a natural extension to the products available at travelsupermarket.com and we are really pleased to provide such a comprehensive offering to our visitors."
"Ferries offer a great alternative to flying and also allow customers to travel abroad and take their cars with them. This is an ideal option for families who may have extra luggage - they can fill up their cars and don't have to pay excess baggage charges as would have had if flying.
"Recent problems with air travel from volcanic ash disruption to strikes have seen travellers looking for ways to avoid airports and our new offering will not only give them choice, it will also save them time in finding those options and present them with the best available fares bookable 24 hours a day."
Kirsty Laifa from aferry.com, said: "It is our goal to increase the awareness of ferries as a viable and convenient alternative to air travel and we are delighted with the travelsupermarket partnership to promote this.''
