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) = 47,25 € + 3 adults (3 * 8,23 €) = 24,69 €, so in total, your price will be 71,94 €. As there is no discount for return tickets the round trip price will be 143,87 € or roughly 47,91 € 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 225,10 €, which includes the bus and the passengers!
