travel information

In our travel information section, you will find advice for first-time travellers to the Continent as well as our latest sailing updates.

At P&O Ferries, we've made the crossing to Europe more pleasurable and more affordable than ever before with our car ferries to France and Holland to name a few. Our routes offer easy access to the Continent's motorways, allowing you to make your own way to the best of France, Holland, Belgium, Germany and Spain.  And all of our ports are conveniently located to get you to your choice of destination. For instance our port in Calais, France has direct motorway access enabling those sailing on one of our car ferries to Calais to explore as much of France and the rest of Europe as they desire. Taking your car, on one of our cross channel care ferries, offers both the freedom to explore and the flexibility of packing your car with as much luggage as you need.
