What is the price for a ferry to Amsterdam?
For a ferry to the Netherlands, the pricing of course is different based on supply and demand.
If you go for a family trip (4) what you can expect is about £ 600 – £ 1000 for a return trip. When you book for two adults only it's £ 400 – £ 700 in total. If you want to cross to Amsterdam in a very cost-effective way, we advise you to book together with friends and share a 4-person room and go in one car. That's the cheapest way. Other tips to reduce the price:
- Book early. Do it. Don't wait; prices will go up!
- If you can: Travel with 4, as you can book a cheap room this way.
- Book through official channels and not through a ticket service. Go to DFDS and book on the website of DFDS.
- Check the following page on the DFDS website for possible discounts, coupons, and offers.
