There are loads of amazing places to visit in France, no matter what you love doing on holiday. So, whether you’re super active, a hardcore foodie, or a dedicated culture vulture, discover why you should take one of our ferries to France for your next holiday.

BENEFITS OF TAKING FERRIES TO FRANCE


There are loads of great benefits associated with ferry travel. From being able to step out into the fresh air whenever you like, to enjoying a three-course meal with uninterrupted sea views, travelling to France by ferry is the perfect way to start your holiday.

  • ENJOY ENDLESS FREEDOM – The best thing about taking ferries to France is that there’s no cramped seats and limited legroom to contend with. In fact, you can spend the whole 90 minutes wandering around the ship and stretching your legs before driving to your final destination if you like.
  • CHOOSE FROM A WIDE RANGE OF FOOD OPTIONS – There’s nothing relaxing about having to choose between two meal options, especially if you have specific dietary requirements. On our ferries to France, you can opt for three-course a la carte dining in the fabulous Brasserie, or a range of hearty meals in the Food Court. Both come with stunning sea views, and we’re confident there’s a perfect dish on board for everyone.
  • PACK ALL YOU CAN CARRY – When you travel by ferry, you won’t need to worry about packing that extra pair of walking boots, or limiting how many toys the kids can bring, because when you choose us you can bring as much as you can carry. From toiletries and home comforts to pool inflatables and cycling gear - there’s no need to leave anything behind.
  • TRAVEL WITH YOUR PET – Is it really a family holiday if your dog can’t come along? Luckily, when you travel to France by ferry you don’t have to leave your furry friend behind. Your pooch can chill out in the car while you enjoy the facilities upstairs, and then you’ll be reunited at the end of the crossing for your onward journey.
  • RELAX IN THE CLUB LOUNGE – There’s no better way to spend your journey to France than in complete luxury, and this is exactly what you can expect in the Club Lounge. Indulge in a complimentary glass of champagne, hot and cold drinks, and a range of snacks, order delicious items from the exclusive Club Lounge menu, and watch the waves roll by from your comfortable chair – absolute bliss.

With so many benefits to enjoy when you choose to take one of our ferries to France, why travel any other way? Choose from up to 23 daily sailings between Dover and Calais, and start your holiday to France as soon as you step on board.

Whether you want to explore French beaches, take walks past Belgian landmarks, or wander along Dutch canals, you can find your perfect pet-friendly trip with P&O Ferries.
