Get there with P&O Ferries

Sail from Dover to Calais with P&O Ferries and then drive around Northern France

P&O Ferries (External link) operates up to 46 daily sailings between Dover and Calais, so there’s plenty to choose from, day or night. Travelling with your vehicle truly unlocks the freedom to explore Northern France and P&O Ferries can accommodate just about any vehicle – from caravans and cars to motorhomes and motorbikes. Check-in for foot passengers is one hour before departure, while check-in for vehicles is just 30 minutes before departure. Flexible tickets are available, with no credit card fee.

Named ‘Best Ferry Company’ and ‘Favourite Ferry Company’ at the 2018 Globe Travel Awards, P&O Ferries offers something for everyone on board during the crossing from Dover to Calais. Browse the shop, enjoy the tranquility of the Club Lounge or indulge yourself in the Brasserie’s fine dining. Children are well catered for with the Junior Crew kids club on selected daytime sailings in summer, which includes everything from arts and crafts sessions to face painting, puzzles and games.

All ships have Wifi and the video arcade room will keep kids busy too. Pets can travel with P&O Ferries, but they do need to remain in the car. In the summer months professional entertainers run the Junior Crew Club to keep children occupied with activities such as model making and face painting, and tales of adventures of the high seas by Club Mascot Pirate Pete.
