Questions and answers

Hi, we have a 10 year old who we would like to take on this trip but it doesn’t give us an option to add on? So is this a possibility to add on the booking through yourselves?

Thank you

Hi there,

Thanks for getting in touch!

I can confirm children are permitted and included in the overall headcount in the deal.

Our vouchers are for two or four people only, but you're welcome to contact DFDS directly to discuss the possibility and cost of adding additional children to your booking and they'll be happy to advise.

I hope this helps!

Jackie, 21:23, 11/04/19

Hi Jackie,

Thanks for getting in touch!

I'm happy to let you know the ferry arrives in Amsterdam at 9.45am, and the coach departs from the port to the city centre at 10.15am, with a journey time of approximately 45 minutes.

The last coach back to the port departs from the city centre at 4pm, giving you up to 5 hours to take in the sights.

I hope this helps!
