Is Freighter Travel cheaper? Than Air or Land based Holiday?

The answer to this question is "No" if people compare it to flight tickets but "YES" if you compare it to a conventional cruise or other holiday.

Freighter travel is more expensive than air travel but people should think of it as a holiday of so many days onboard a ship (hotel) and the fare includes accommodation, meals and charges. In comparison to a land based holiday of lets say 10 days - full board, people will pay the same amount of money or very likely more. Now, if a Transatlantic flight gets you to Europe for 5/8 hours and you pay 500/600 pounds return, a ship would give you the experience of a 10/15 day crossing for double the amount, yes, but that is including food, cabin... therefore you will feel well rested, etc... So think of it as a cheaper way to a conventional cruise or a land based holiday than to flying. It will never be cheaper, considering the food and the accommodation you get and not mentioning the experience...
