Travelling with a dog – On the ferry.

Travelling with a dog – On the ferry.

As a general rule of thumb, whilst travelling with a dog on a ferry, your dog will have to remain in either 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 dog to travel. Otherwise you could be refused entry onto the vessel. Please read our Travelling with a dog – Passports and Vaccinations guide for more information.

Each operator has slightly different rules regarding travelling with a dog, so please check with them directly prior to booking.
