Taking A Pet to France.
All operators except pets provided you have the relevant Pet Passport. Pets remain in the car on the car deck throughout your journey. You are not allowed on the car deck for the duration of the voyage. Your pet is in safe hands as the car is labelled with a pet sticker. Crews on the car deck look out for any animals that may be in distress.
Your choice of travel to start your holiday in France is very much a personal one. My advice would be, if you want a relaxed start then take a Ferry, admire the white cliffs of Dover and settle in for a nice meal.
Or if you want to save the relaxation for when you arrive in France. Take the Euortunnel.
When booking accommodation with us we can offer competitive pricing on a Ferry To France. Flexible tickets with P & O can often work out cheaper than booking directly with the ferry operators.
Please enquire for pricing options.
