P&O Ferries accept the carriage of pet animals. We make a charge of £15 each way for each pet travelling onboard Dover to Calais, and £17 for each pet travelling onboard our Hull – Rotterdam/Zeebrugge route, with the exception of registered guide and hearing dogs, which are carried free of charge. For customers travelling on our Irish routes there is no charge for pets. Please note that animals cannot travel unaccompanied.
Dover – Calais
Check-in at least one hour before departure and the animals must remain inside the vehicle at all times during the crossing. Foot passengers cannot travel with pets.
Hull – Rotterdam/Zeebrugge
Check-in at least ninety minutes before departure and the animals remain inside air-conditioned kennels on the vehicle decks during the duration of the crossing. Coach passengers are unable to carry pets, with the exception of registered guide and hearing dogs.
Liverpool – Dublin, Cairnryan/Troon – Larne
If you are travelling with a pet this must be declared at the time of booking and in advance of travel. Arrangements for pets on board and check-in times vary by route and will be advised at the time of booking. Pets (excluding guide dogs) will not be allowed in the passenger areas of the ship. It is your responsibility to provide all necessary documents and make all arrangements, including where necessary quarantine, to satisfy all legal requirements. Failure to do so will prevent your pet from being permitted to travel. Passengers travelling by coach on any of the P&O Ferries routes and foot passengers using our Irish Sea services will not be permitted to travel with pets. Unaccompanied pets will not be accepted on any of our services. In some cases the carriage of animals will require the payment of freight tariffs. Access to your pet during the crossing is at the discretion of the ships’ officers.
