Travelling with us
Whether you're travelling with your family, on a motorcycle or bicycle, with your pet or as a disabled passenger travelling to France and Spain is easy with Brittany Ferries.
What makes our onboard food and wine so exceptional?
Our wonderful onboard restaurants and well-stocked boutiques are all part of the Brittany Ferries experience that you just can't get anywhere else - and so are the exclusive, expert-crafted and expert-chosen foods and wines in them! In fact, we do our best to source locally and around 80% of the food served on board is sourced in France - the vast majority from Brittany.
Whale And Dolphin Spotting Mini-cruises with ORCA
Join Brittany Ferries and ORCA on one of our fascinating mini-cruises to Northern Spain and discover the incredible whales and dolphins that call the Bay of Biscay their home. In fact, nearly 1/3 of the world's whale and dolphin species live in these waters, from playful bottlenose dolphins to gigantic fin whales, and our onboard ORCA wildlife officers are on hand to help you identify them!

Travelling abroad with your pet
If you love your holidays but always feel sad at the prospect of leaving behind your four-legged friend, then Brittany Ferries have the answer. With the PETS Travel Scheme, we make it easy for you to take your dog or cat on holiday to France or Spain.
Travelling with your pet
Hate the thought of leaving your pet behind? Then why not take it with you with Brittany Ferries and the Pet Travel Scheme? On board, your pet will travel in the comfort and familiarity of your car, where you can visit them during the crossing. Some sailings even offer dedicated kennels and pet friendly cabins.
Boarding our ships
This short film gives an insight into the surprisingly complex process of loading our ships. We aim to make boarding and dis-embarking efficient and straightforward for customers, but we know waiting in the car lanes can be a bit frustrating - particularly if you have arrived early and then see cars that have arrived after you boarding first.
What's it like for disabled travellers?
If you’re travelling to France or Spain and you or one of your party has a disability or impaired mobility, you may find the following film informative and reassuring. The film gives you an idea of what to expect, particularly if you or one of your party is using a wheelchair. It is important to note that the levels of assistance and facilities on each ship will vary but we would be happy to address your individual needs at the time of booking. Please contact us for detailed information or further support.
Travelling by motorcycle
France and Spain are ideal for motorbike touring with miles of good roads, fantastic scenery and plenty of comfortable places to stay. Your bike will be carefully secured on the car-deck for the duration of your sailing.
Taking your caravan by ferry
Travelling by ferry with your caravan is incredibly simple. Drive on just like all the other cars and park up! You'll find our car decks have plenty of space. There are some wonderful camp-sites throughout both countries - and compared to busy British roads, driving in France and Spain is much more of a pleasure.
Travelling by bicycle
Taking your bike across the Channel is surprisingly easy and affordable. Simply walk it onto the car deck where it will be safely secured, then relax whilst enjoying your sailing. Unlike air travel, there is no need to dismantle the bike, or to wonder whether it will arrive from the luggage hold in one piece. You have a tandem? No problem. Tandems and bikes are all the same great low price.
