Stena Line has decided to use humour as a way of telling its customers that they need to book early in order to secure the lowest fares and preferred sailings on their Irish Sea routes.

The ferry company is also making its £69 single, for a car and driver fare available during the Christmas season.

The line's head of travel, Orla Noonan, said: “At Christmas we want to spend time with our nearest and dearest and every year, thousands of people cross the Irish Sea to share the festive season with family and friends. We make that journey home not only cost effective, stress free and fun but as we have no baggage charges you can get a present for all of your loved ones and as pets travel for free no-one gets left behind.

“Once onboard, passengers will be treated to the best ferry experience on the Irish Sea. And don’t worry if you’ve forgotten that last minute present – you’ll find super gift ideas in our onboard store. Plus, with up to 50% off High Street brands including fragrances, cosmetics, toys and electrical, there’s something for the whole family.”
