P&O Ferry Mini Cruise From Hull

From Hull you can choose to take your car with you and spend a day exploring Holland or Belgium at leisure, or travel as a foot passenger and explore the beautiful cities of Amsterdam and Rotterdam (in Holland) or Bruges (in Belgium) with inclusive city-centre coach transfers.

A 2 night minicruise includes two consecutive nights onboard accommodation in your own en suite cabin and a day ashore on the Continent. Foot passengers can upgrade to a 3 night minicruise and spend a night in their chosen city for just an additional £20 per person (does not include hotel accommodation).

P&O Ferry Mini Cruise From Portsmouth

The impressive Pride of Bilbao is the perfect ship on which to enjoy this 3 night round trip to Bilbao in Spain.

With live cabaret entertainment, restaraunts, bars, two cinemas and even a plunge pool and health spa there is plenty to do before relaxing for the evenings in your own en suite cabin.

With up to 4 hours ashore in Spain you can choose to book one of our three optional shore excursions from just £10 per person, allowing you to learn a little more about this beautiful area of Spain.

P&O Ferry Mini Cruise From Dover

From Dover you can enjoy the luxury of a 'Cruise à la Carte' minicruise, the convenience of a 'Car Park Shopper' minicruise or a combination of the two.

The non-landing Cruise à la Carte package allows you to sail out to Calais as a foot passenger in the ambience of the Club Lounge, then enjoy a three course meal in the exclusive onboard Langan's Brasserie on the return trip.

With Car Park Shopper you can drive on board, park your car, then 'shop till you drop' safe in the knowledge that everything you buy will be carried to you car ready for you to drive off back in Dover.

Pet Travel Scheme (PETS)

P&O Ferries will carry PETS on all services* from Dover to Calais and Hull to Rotterdam and Zeebrugge. The P&O Ferries service from Portsmouth to Bilbao does not take part in the Pet Travel Scheme due to the length of the sailing, as this would be unsuitable for any pet to travel.
*Subject to the qualifying criteria below.

The Pet Travel Scheme (PETS) is the system that allows pet animals from certain countries to enter the UK without quarantine as long as they meet certain criteria. It also means that people in the UK who 'meet' these conditions can take their pets to these countries and bring them back without the need for quarantine.

The scheme: (PETS) only applies to domestic Cats and Dogs* including registered assisted dogs (i.e. guide dogs and hearing dogs.) It does not include any other animals like rabbits, guinea pigs or hamsters etc. The scheme is limited and only operates from certain countries and territories coming into the UK. It is against the law in Great Britain to possess certain types of dogs and meeting the requirements of PETS will not change that.

Under the scheme which is also know as PETS, animals can travel across Europe without the need to be placed into quarantine for 6 months on their return to the UK.

The DEFRA web site contains all the necessary information needed for anyone intending to travel with their cats or dogs. Animals cannot travel unaccompanied.

Joining PETS Passport Scheme

At least 6 months before the date of travel into the UK:

The dog or cat must be fitted with a microchip.
The animal must be vaccinated against rabies.
A blood test must be done to ensure that the above vaccination will offer sufficient protection against rabies.
An official PETS certificate can then be obtained from a government authorised vet and must be carried when travelling.
A declaration of residency form (PETS3) must be signed which states that the animal has not been outside any of the PETS qualifying countries in the 6 months before entry or re-entry to the UK.
24 to 48 hours before returning to the UK the animal must be treated for ticks and tapeworm and a vet?s certificate confirming this has been done obtained.

The certificate of health is no longer required for pets travelling from Hull.

However a certificate of health signed by a vet 24 hours before departure is recommended for entry into Belgium and Holland.

For animals travelling to Belgium a EXP26 rabies certificate is required and must have been issued at least 30 days before travel.

Dover - Calais

For animals under the pets passport scheme

Vehicle Drivers
All animals must remain in the vehicle at all times.

Foot and Coach Passengers
Regrettably Foot and Coach Passengers cannot take PETS on the Dover to Calais route. The only exceptions are guide and hearing dogs, which are carried free of charge in both directions, otherwise they will be subject to the same quarantine regulations as any other animal.

Check-in Times
Check-in is at least 60 minutes before departure for customers travelling with pets either from Dover or Calais. Please note that these times are the very latest check-in times for customers with animals. We would recommend you to check-in earlier wherever possible.

Coach Travel
Domestic Pets will not be accepted for carriage with customers travelling in coaches.

Hull - Rotterdam / Zeebrugge

For animals under the pets passport scheme

Vehicle Drivers
Drivers can take domestic PETS providing the animals remain in their vehicle at all times.

Coach Passengers
We regret that pets are not allowed to travel with passengers travelling by coach.

Where are Animals Kept Whilst On-Board?
Domestic pets can be carried in RSPCA approved carriers. Larger animals will have to be allocated a kennel i.e. cats and dogs. The Kennels are located in an air-conditioned area and are checked hourly during the crossing. The entrance door to the kennels is from car deck 7. The kennels have non-transparent sides so animals cannot see each other. Water is available, however owners should take their own bowls, food and blankets. There will be an opportunity for owner's to visit their animal by prior arrangement.

Check-in Times
We recommend that you check-in at least 3 hours before departure whether you are travelling from Hull or the continent. Please note that these times are the very latest check-in times for customers with animals. We would recommend you to check-in earlier wherever possible.

Information Applicable to All Routes:
(Excluding Spain and any sailings operated by the Pride of Bilbao)

The charge for the carriage of pets is £15 each way for each animal taken and must be paid at time of booking.

Coach travel
We regret that Coach Passengers are NOT permitted to take PETS on any of our routes.
