Travelling with pets answers
A. The Pet Travel Scheme was introduced by the Government in 2000 to allow pet dogs, cats and ferrets to travel between the UK and certain countries (mainly EU countries), without quarantine.
If bringing a pet into the UK, the pet will have to be part of the Pets Passport Scheme. Depending on the ferry operator and route, your pet may have to remain in the car for the duration of the crossing, with no passenger access. For more information on the Pet Travel Scheme and Pet Passports see our article on travelling with pets or visit the official Defra website.
A. At AFerry.we are constantly adding new features and products. One new feature is the ability to book pets directly online. With the following companies you can book pets directly online. Note that many other ferry companies do offer pet booking, but for these you will have to make your booking and then contact us via the messaging service in your account to add your pet(s). However, please note that we cannot guarantee availability until we have confirmed with the ferry operator.
