It’s a dog’s life

Nearly half the UK population has a pet. Shouldn’t they get to go on holiday too? We think so! So if you decide to travel with pets, ferry travel is the way to go.

When you’re preparing to go on holiday, what you do with your dog is a major concern. You need to find a kennel you trust, and accept that the cost of them staying there is just something else to add to your trip. Then you spend the two weeks worrying that they are ok and that they’ll still recognise you when you get back!

With ferry travel, you don’t need to leave your pets behind. On long journeys many ships have dedicated kennel space that you can visit throughout the journey; on hops across the channel, your pet can stay in the familiar surroundings of your car and on many short journeys they can even come up on deck to sample the sea air. Ferry travel is designed to bring families together, not separate them for the duration of the journey. Staff on board are experienced with pets travelling on board and are always there to help you with any questions or issues you may have.

Ferries are pet friendly and that’s a big deal when we all know that your pet is one of the family. When you travel with pets, make sure it’s on a ferry!
