Have a hire car and would like to take it on the ferry from turku to stockholm. Question is, will it be easy? Stress free? Can we just turn up or do we need to treat the tickets like airline tickets? Thanks heaps in advance)
It is as Gili_S says less stressful to go via Turku. Just make sure you are at the harbour one hour before the ferry leavs. Then you shouldn't have any problems. You have to show your ticket when you drive onboard. That's why they want the cars to be there in time. You just read the signs and drive after the other cars. It's not difficult. If you haven't bought the tickets I recommend you to do it in advance. You can do it at Viking Line's or Silja Line's website. When you have your car onboard you have to go down to the car about 20 minutes before the ferry arrive to Stockholm. They should say it in the speakers also. I hope you'll have a pleasent stay in Turku and Stockholm and a safe journy with the ferry. I recommend to eat buffet onboard. The food is delicious. Good luck!
