Free ferries in Denmark in summer 2021?

The Danish government is preparing a new summer package to give an economic boost to Danish summertime. The government, to negotiations with the parties in the Danish Parliament (Folketing), intends to allocate 205 million kroner (€27.5 million) for low-cost ferry travel in Denmark.

The Danish Ministry of Transport informs about this in a press release

Part of the proposal is to make it possible to travel within one’s own country at reasonable prices, whether by ferry to one of the Danish islands or by train ticket to the capital Copenhagen.

“We have many beautiful and exciting places and sights in Denmark, so there is every reason to make vacations here even easier and more attractive. I am confident that broad political agreement can be reached on funding for a summer package,” Transportation Secretary Benny Engelbrecht (S) said in the press release.

Engelbrecht looks forward to discussing with the other parties how best to get young people, students, adults, the elderly, families with children and citizens with disabilities to experience Denmark and support the entire recreation industry in the country.

In 2020, free ferries were a big success

In the summer of 2020, the offer of free ferry rides for walkers and cyclists in July was a great success. Just as many people opted for a ticket for all public transport or one of the cheap Orange tickets that allowed them to travel cheaply across Denmark.

Offer valid only for Danes

However, the free ferry tickets are only valid for locals, so foreign tourists cannot benefit from this offer. In addition, the offer is also valid only for ferries within Denmark and not for feeders such as the ferry Rostock-Gedser or the ferry Puttgarden-Rödby.
