It often happens that people travelling by, car or bus get a bit confused about how to calculate the price, so here are a few examples
Car with passengers
If you are e.g. 3 adults and a regular car going on the ferry, the price calculations for one-way tickets are the following, car (Less than 5 meters in length, and two meters in height) = 20,70 € + 3 adults (3 * 4,78 €) = 14,33 €, so in total, your price will be 35,04 €. As there is no discount for return tickets the round trip price will be 70,08 € or roughly 23,36 € per person.
Bus with passengers
For a bus the way of calculating is different, if you have a bus with space for 30 people and 22 passengers, the price is 121,57 €, which includes the bus and the passengers!
