Students pack it all in and sail for free!

Press Release   •   Aug 14, 2013 14:38 BST

Leading ferry company Stena Line is celebrating the start of the new university term with a fantastic STUDENTS GO FREE offer that will help save some much needed pounds.

This great value offer is available on all of Stena Line’s Irish Sea routes, one adult can travel from as little as £79* single and bring a car full of students for free (for travel between 30 August – 31st October, book by 30 Sept), as well as everything needed for university life including cases of clothes, textbooks and widescreen TVs.

Diane Poole OBE, Stena Line’s Head of PR and Communications said:  “Leaving home to travel to university is a life-changing experience for thousands of young people.  Not only are they moving to another city leaving their family and friends behind, but they then have to cope with the financial challenges a tight budget throws at them.” 

Diane continued:  “That’s why our students go free fare is such a good deal – as long as Mum or Dad is driving – every student who travels will pay absolutely nothing.  If you have an eight-seater – that’s a lot of savings but even with one or two students in the car this is a great offer!”

“A common worry among parents is the logistics and cost of getting their child’s belongings to their new home.  When you travel with Stena Line there are no bag facebook.com/StenaLineUKIE and simply upload a photo of what you absolutely cannot live without at university, plus a brief description.  One lucky student will get their hands on the Super Student Survival Kit but there are also lots of other chances to win a range of prizes over the 6 weeks with one winner being picked a week.
