Pet Friendly Cabins On Ferry From Spain To Uk?

UK to Spain (and back again) – Because there are only a limited number of ferries between the UK and Spain, things are much simpler.

  • Portsmouth to Santander (Brittany Ferries’ Cap Finestre): Has pet-friendly cabins and kennels.
  • Portsmouth to Bilbao (Brittany Ferries’ Cap Finestre): Has pet-friendly cabins and kennels.
  • Plymouth to Santander (Brittany Ferries’ Pont-Aven): Has kennels (cats can stay in the car).

Note: All of these routes are operated by Brittany Ferries. To get a pet-friendly cabin, we recommend booking directly [ link ] rather than using a comparison site.

Of course! Don’t leave your four-legged friend behind, they’re part of the family! Bring them along so that they can share the adventures and enjoy the fun. On Stena Line, pets are welcome and you can book your companion into a kennel (we advise that you pre-book to secure a kennel), take them on onboard (there are some rules around this) or keep them inside the car.

Can you take dogs on the Santander ferry?

Coping with the trip – Just to get one important point out of the way – you must ensure that you specify your intent to travel with a pet when making your booking. If your travel service provider or chosen accommodation isn’t pet-friendly, you could be turned away or refused travel. Pet Friendly Cabins On Ferry From Spain To Uk When taking the ferry to Spain, pets cannot be left in vehicles given the duration of the crossing. As such, it’s necessary to book a cabin that can accommodate you and your pet. Alternatively, there’s also the option of using the on-board kennel services available on many crossings to Spain. Taking plenty of toys and distractions along for the ride is a good idea – especially for dogs that have a tendency to become somewhat restless.

We’ve also put together a list of handy travel tips of everything you’ll need to know, so that you can be fully prepared for all your future journeys to Europe and back. When travelling to an EU country or Northern Ireland, o wners should visit their vet at least one month before travel and make sure their pet has :

  • A microchip for identification.
  • A valid rabies vaccination – there are different requirements for pets entering from certain third countries , such as a rabies blood test.
  • An animal health certificate unless you have a pet passport issued in an EU country or Northern Ireland.
  • Tapeworm treatment for dogs. A vet must treat your dog for tapeworm and record it in the animal health certificate if you’re travelling directly to: Finland, Ireland, Malta, Northern Ireland, Norway. Note: Your dog must be treated for tapeworm to enter or return to the UK from an EU country – unless travelling from the above mentioned countries.

These requirements also apply to assistance and guide dogs. Check the rules of the country you’re travelling to for any additional restrictions or requirements before you travel. More details can be found on our Pet Brexit  page or visit the government pet travel advice page for more information. Dogs, cats or ferrets are allowed on our ships, as long as they meet all the EU entry requirements and have a valid AHC or EU Pet Passport.

As all pets must stay inside the vehicle during the trip, we’ve put together a few tips on how to make the journey as comfortable and hassle-free as possible for both you and your pet.

Make sure to feed your pet at least a few hours before boarding the ship – if you do it later then they may get travel sick. You should also leave some water in the car in a non-spill bowl for them, so that they can stay hydrated. Always allow time for your pet to go to the toilet before boarding.

  • Give your pet plenty of exercise before they travel – that way, they’re likely to be less restless on the car journey;
  • It’s also a good idea to give them some toys to amuse them during the voyage;
  • Leave your pet’s bedding in the car with them so they feel cosy and at home – we wouldn’t want them to get nervous or scared! Make sure your car is as cool as possible when you leave them, particularly in the summer months, and always leave a window or two cracked open for them;

If your pet isn’t used to going on long journeys, taking them in the car a few times before the crossing is a good way to get them comfortable with travelling. This will make the journey enjoyable for all your passengers, not just your pet! We know how much your furry friends matter to you, which is why we’re pleased to let you know that both our Dover and Calais Ferry Terminals now have two dedicated pet areas for your much-loved pets to stretch their paws and enjoy some playtime in the open-air! Not only that, for the Crufts wannabes among your beloved companions, we also have a few obstacle tasks within the exercise areas to get them energised and exercised, as well as a seating area for you to relax.

Our staff will be happy to direct you to these dedicated pet areas once you’ve checked in, just ask them for directions. If your pet is poorly on the way to the ferry, you’ll find the nearest vet information for Dover and Calais ports below.

As your pet stays in your vehicle during the voyage, it’s important to make sure they’re fully fit and well before boarding the ship. White Cliffs Vets Unit 11, Whitfield Court, White Cliffs Business Park, Whitfield, CT16 3PX Monday – Friday: 8. 30am – 6pm  Thursday open until 7pm Saturday 8.
