Do I need to book my ferry tickets in advance?
Booking your ferry tickets in advance is highly recommended especially if you are travelling during peak or holiday season. Purchasing your tickets from the port at the last minute is possible but during summer, Christmas and Easter you may find that your preferred dates are fully booked. Even if your travel dates are relatively flexible, you may be in for an unpleasant surprise during these periods, especially if you are travelling to popular destination. If you are travelling with a vehicle or pet, booking in advance is a must as garage space and pet cabins are limited. Booking as early as possible can also save you money as many ferry operators offer Early Booking discounts. In general booking in advance offers you peace of mind knowing you have secured your places on board and don’t have to worry about availability.
Can I bring my car on the ferry to France?
Yes, you will find that most ferry operators and ferries can transport private vehicles such as motorcycles, cars, minibuses, campers, caravans, boat trailers and baggage trailers and bookings are possible through our platform. However, some ferries have limited garage space and vehicles exceeding 6m in length may require approval from the ferry company. If you are traveling with a larger vehicle and cannot book your tickets online, feel free to ask for our help with your booking. Please note that, if your vehicle is not registered as a private vehicle, you should contact the cargo department of the ferry company directly as the booking process for trucks and commercial vehicles is completely different.
