Passports and Identification

Passports and Identification

This will depend on which route you are taking. But as a general rule of thumb – yes, it’s a good idea to bring it.

If you are a British / Irish citizen travelling across the Irish Sea you do not need a valid passport. However, you will need to bring a form of identification with you. This can one of the following items:

  • A valid passport.
  • photographic driving license.
  • International Student Card.
  • government issued photo ID card.
  • health insurance/social security photographic card.
  • photographic bus/train pass.
  • EU Citizen Identity Card will usually suffice.
  • A birth certificate will provide adequate proof of identity for children (17 years and under with no photographic identification) to travel on our sailings.

If you are a British / Irish citizen travelling to mainland Europe you must bring a valid passport.

If you are not a British / Irish citizen, you will need a passport.

*Remember the name on your passport must match your booking.

* Remember passports must be valid for at least 6 months past the date of return.
