What documents do I need to take when travelling on a Direct Ferry crossing?
If you’re traveling in a vehicle, it is a legal requirement to carry a valid driving licence, vehicle registration and vehicle insurance certificate. There's also specific regulations in different countries and you should check before travelling to make sure you're being compliant. If you're a foot passenger, you’ll only need your passport.
How will I know if my Direct Ferries ferry has been delayed?
You can check to see if your ferry is running on time or not by looking at the Travel Alerts page of the website.
Can I take a pet with me when travelling with Direct Ferries?
Most ferry companies allow the carriage of pets, but it will incur a small fee. The length and type of crossing will determine whether your pet stays in the vehicle or spends the crossing in a dedicated animal area. You will be responsible for complying with the regulations and requirements that may vary in each country or territory you are travelling to or from.
