Liverpool Fans Traveling to Utrecht by Ferry
Liverpool FC will play Dutch side FC Utrecht in a Europa League away game on the 30th September 2010.
For LFC fans traveling to the game in Utrecht, you may be considering flying, but a cheaper and potentially much better way of travelling to the game is via ferry. If you are flying then you will probably be paying close to £150 per person and that would be with flights from Liverpool to Amsterdam.
The UK has three ferry connections to Holland and many more to mainland Europe. For Liverpool fans who live in the Merseyside area, the best option will probably be the short drive over to Hull to catch the Hull to Rotterdam ferry. This ferry departs daily from Hull around 9pm each day and arrive 12 hours later in Rotterdam, which is just over an hours drive from from Utrecht. This ferry is operated by P&O Ferries, you can travel as a foot passenger as well as taking your own vehicle. If you are traveling in a group of 4 then you may find you will save a lot of money over flying. All your ferry options are below.
For those fans traveling from other parts of the UK, you have the option of the daily overnight ferry from Newcastle to Amsterdam. For those living in the London area you best option will probably be the ferry from Harwich (in Essex) over to the Hook of Holland, which sails twice daily and is the shortest UK to Holland ferry.
All of the ferries are equipped with en suite cabins as well as bars, restaurants and on board entertainment. If there are 4 travelling it can workout at less than £30 per person each way, if you want to take your car over it will be slightly more expensive, but again if there are 4 traveling over then the cost is not that much per person. All your ferry options are below.
