Travelling with a motorbike

If you've never travelled with your motorbike on a ferry or with Brittany Ferries before then you perhaps have lots of questions about the travel process so we've put together this useful guide telling you everything that happens!

Before you leave home


  • Documents: All passengers need a valid passport or ID card

  • Your bike: Check your motorbike meets the requirements for the country you are visiting

  • Plan your journey to the port: Due to our new health and safety measures, passengers must check-in at least 90 minutes before departure

  • See our covid-19 information for the latest travel and testing requirements

  • Read our latest advice on travelling to the EU after Brexit



Please contact us before the day of departure if you have any special travel needs that you think may affect your journey

Travel tip! Pack a separate travel bag with the essentials you will require during the sailing to save taking large suitcases with you to your cabin/seat. Soap and towels are supplied in every cabin. For overnight sailings without a cabin there are public showers and we sell Sleep Packs and Shower Packs onboard.
