Operating under mailferries.co.uk, Direct Ferries is now the exclusive provider of all ferry product to the Mail Travel business, which provides travel products through its website, The Daily Mail and The Mail on Sunday.
Direct Ferries sells more than 1,900 ferry routes in over 190 countries and islands.
Andrew Crowe, sales and marketing director at the firm, said: “We are thrilled to be working with Mail Travel as their exclusive ferry partner, offering access to ferry routes worldwide at the best prices.
“We are confident that Mail Travel users will really benefit from this partnership which complements the extensive holiday product already available on their site.
“We are anticipating that 2016 will see a big growth in ferry travel for a variety of reasons, we will be offering more routes and operators but also events like Euro 2016 to be held in France will see thousands of people travelling to the continent, many of whom will take a ferry.”
Stuart Milan, trading and commercial manager of Mail Travel, said: “Partnering with Direct Ferries gives us a fantastic opportunity to engage with a greater number of Mail readers, with a new product that Mail Travel has not featured before. With our broad readership, and online presence, I’m confident we’ll be able to make this a success.”
