Accompanied pets

If you are travelling with your pet, you can embark using the foot passenger or vehicle entrance, at which point you will be accompanied by our staff to the pet-friendly area on board. You can keep your pet with you or use one of the cages located in the pet area. If your pet gets too excited, we might ask you to put on the muzzle or even use one of our cages until they calm down.

Please note that once outside the cage, pets have to be on a leash at all times, this for the benefit of all those using the pet area.

Pet cats, dogs and rabbits may travel onboard the vessel as long as you inform us during the booking process. This is when you will be asked whether your pet will be joining you in the pet area or remaining in your vehicle throughout the crossing.

Some restrictions might be applied on large breed dogs. Please contact us on 27998989 for further information.
