Travelling with a dog – On the ferry.

Travelling with a dog – On the ferry.

As a general rule of thumb, whilst travelling with your dog on a ferry, your dog will have to remain either in your vehicle or in the onboard kennels. This will have to be declared at the booking stage. Most operators provide this as a free service, but a couple of the routes do incur a small charge.

It is also important to make sure you have the correct documentation for your pet to travel, otherwise you could be refused enter onto the vessel. Please read our Travelling with a dog – Passports and Vaccinations guide for more information.

Each operator has slightly different rules regarding pet travel, so please check with them directly prior to booking.
