Puttgarden-Rødby ferry prices

There are several ways to travel between Germany and Denmark. Therefore, comparing the prices between the Puttgarden-Rødby ferry and the alternatives is important.

The prices for the Puttgarden-Rødby ferry vary depending on the high and low seasons. There is also a mid-season for vehicle tickets, where the prices are slightly higher than the low season.

The starting prices mentioned on the Scandlines website are always:

  • Low season prices
  • Excluding €1.50 fuel surcharge per crossing
  • Rates for early bookings.


You can choose from Early Booker, Standard, and Flex options when making a booking. This will include the fuel surcharge, and the prices for a one-way trip in British pounds are as follows:

  • Early Booker: £45
  • Standard: £72
  • Flex: £98

There is no additional benefit for round-trip tickets unless you return on the same day. In all other cases, the cost is the one-way fare multiplied by two.

For those traveling with a vehicle, the fare is based solely on the vehicle. The maximum number of passengers that can be added to the vehicle is 9. For vehicles longer than 6 meters, an additional charge of £26 per two meters applies.

‘Early booker’ from £45

From 30 days before departure, you can buy tickets in limited availability from £44 for a single journey. On top of that is a fuel surcharge of £1.30.

‘Standard’ from £72

Standard tickets can be purchased online up to 2 hours before departure for £71. On top of that is a fuel surcharge of £1.30.

‘Flex’ from £98

We see Flex tickets as tickets  that you should very rarely order because of the price. These are only interesting if you travel with great uncertainty about your departure date. Flex Tickets are available from £97 excluding fuel surcharge..
