Do I need to book my ferry tickets for Spain 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.

Booking as early as possible can also save you money as many ferry operators offer Early Booking discounts.

Can I bring my car on the ferry to Spain?
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, there are specific ferries that do not carry vehicles such as some catamarans and speed boats that either operate on shorter routes or serve the sole purpose of getting passengers to their destination as quickly as possible. When starting your booking in our platform you will be informed which ferries can transport vehicles and which can’t. In rare cases, you will be able to book smaller vehicles online such as motorcycles and cars but larger vehicles like campers and minibuses may require authorization from the ferry company, so feel free to ask for our help with your booking. 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.
