Direct Ferries has launched its new website at www.directferries.co.uk, which offers access to 91 ferry companies (and the Eurotunnel), 1,542 ferry routes and more than 355 ferry ports offering connections by sea to more than 96 countries and islands.
Ferry crossings from Dover to Calais currently lead in at £36 and the site features a comprehensive list of ports and detailed information on routes and destinations. A route and port finder also makes it easy for agents to find out which operators sail on which routes by looking at a country or by port in the drop down list.
The site also offers train and ferry combined tickets and has a dedicated mini cruise section. By partnering with accommodation provider, booking.com, visitors to the site also have a choice of accommodation.
Andrew Crowe, the company’s sales and marketing director, said: “Direct Ferries is an online travel agent that sells and supports all of the major ferry operators both in the UK & Ireland and the rest of Europe. We have launched our new website which is more customer-friendly and ensures we make more ferry bookings for the ferry operator, in a time where there are increasingly fewer pro-active ferry booking travel agents.
“Additionally we also work with travel agents on an affiliate or travel agent model. They can use our systems and technology as well as white label this on their own site. Travel agents can gain access to the best prices, extensive ferry routes and the latest ferry deals. We also give agents the opportunity to sell European ferry routes in a number of destinations, including Spain, Greece, Italy – and even further. What’s more, we work with agents on a commission spilt model.”
