NorthLink Ferries to Orkney and Shetland

Serco NorthLink Ferries Welcomes 2015 Bookings

Serco NorthLink Ferries is accepting bookings for travel to and from the Northern Isles for next year.

Stuart Garrett, Managing Director at Serco NorthLink Ferries, said: “As ever, the year ahead is set to include a number of exciting events for both Orkney and Shetland, from live traditional music festivals to midsummer celebrations.

“To cater for the ever popular folk and blues festivals we will be offering an additional six sailings on the MV Hamnavoe Scrabster to Stromness service.

“During peak times, our ships do get busy so we would urge passengers to plan ahead to avoid disappointment. We look forward to welcoming new and returning passengers during what we hope proves to be another successful year.”

Improvements to the Serco NorthLink Ferries booking system were made earlier this year, allowing customers to view forthcoming journey details, make amendments to bookings and book a number of services including meals, cots and kennels. The system also recognises concessionary rates for senior citizens (aged 60 years and over), those in full-time education and disabled passengers.

Serco NorthLink Ferries operates sailings from Aberdeen to Kirkwall and Lerwick as well as sailings from Scrabster to Stromness. Those who wish to book or require further information should go to www.northlinkferries.co.uk or call 0845 6000 449.
