Sailing with ÆrøXpressen in the beautiful waters between Langeland and Ærø is a cruise experience in itself, so you dream away and simply enjoy the trip. However, there are a number of practical points we would like to draw attention to.
TRAVELING TO OR FROM ÆRØ?
Get your ticket here
Seat reservation and purchase of tickets is made on our online booking.
You can also buy a ticket at the office in Marstal or on board the ferry.
All tickets must be paid for online unless you have a 10 trip card.
For passengers with vehicles who have a reservation, the meeting time is no later than 10 minutes before departure. If you arrive later, your reservation does not apply and you must drive in lanes for vehicles without reservation.
Booked and paid tickets can refundable up to ½ hour before scheduled departure. You can do this yourself via the "Correct your booking" link in the booking confirmation, by logging in to "My page" or by calling the office on +45 7370 7800. Outside office hours you can send an SMS to our emergency phone +45 3050 5991.
You can also move your reservation to another time on the day itself or to a later day up to 1/2 hour before departure, subject to the space of the departure in question. Of course, you can also use your ticket as payment for a trip of chance on the day in question.
It is easy to find the ferry in both Rudkøbing and Marstal. At the entrance to both towns are signs showing the way to the ferry.
Rudkøbing ferry port: Harbour Square 1, 5900 Rudkøbing. Coordinates: 54.937453, 10.702961
Marstal ferry port: Harbour Square 8, 5960 Marstal. Coordinates: 54.856403, 10.521553
When you arrive at Havnepladsen in both ferry ports there is a summary plan that shows what march stalls there are for cars with seat reservation and which are for cars without a seat reservation. If you have a seat reservation, you must show up no later than 10 minutes before scheduled departure to be able to drive in the march stalls for reserved cars. If you come later you have to drive in the march stall for cars without a seat reservation.
In both ferry ports there are information screens showing the current sailing schedule and providing information about cancellations, major delays and possible extra trips. In Rudkøbing, the information screen is located in the waiting room of the yellow house by the ferry. In Marstal, the information screen can be found in the window of the ferry's office.
Long-term parking is available in both ports, free of charge and a short distance from the ferry.
See where on the map of ports below.
Langeland Municipality also refers to Bellevue (the road behind the terraced houses by the ferry), the boat storage area at Skudehavnen and the few spaces at the old bus station. There is also a parking lot close to the square in Rudkøbing (driveway after the butcher's shop). Parking is of course at your own risk.
People with walking difficulties:
For people with walking difficulties, wheel chair users, people with prams or others who have trouble with stairs there is a passenger lounge with 10 seats and a handicap toilet beside the deck. This lounge has enough floor space for one to be able to move from wheelchair to chairs or to place a walker close to you. We have marked two slots on the deck for people in car who need easy access to this lounge. These slots can be booked by adding a D (short for Deck lounge) to your car number. Then the crew will know that the car needs to be parked outside the Deck Lounge. Contact us if you need help booking.
Assistance at the landing and in Deck Lounge:
At extremely high- or low tide the ramp can be difficult to pass for people with walking difficulties. Our crew who is at the deck to lead people on board or ashore will offer their assistance if anyone is in need.
Service in Deck Lounge:
In Deck Lounge you will be able to buy a cup of coffee, tea or other hot beverages in the vending machine that will accept credit card and MobilePay. You can also buy beer, water, candy and snacks which is placed in the refrigerator. Payment by MobilePay.
People with special needs:
Braille is installed on the interior and exterior handrails of the ferry. Loudspeaker information on safety conditions, embarkation and disembarkation/driving, among other things, sounds at each arrival and departure. The same information is displayed on information screens around the ship. For people who need shelter, a sheltered seating area is provided in the upper saloon.
When you book your tickets you can choose one way or return. You pay for your tickets when you book. Tickets are sent to your e-mail address and you must bring the tickets on the ferry either in print or for display on a smartphone/tablet. If you have forgotten your tickets, you must buy new ones on board.
