About Transmanche Ferries

The company was founded on the initiative of the President of the Conseil Général de la Seine maritime, Charles REVET, who refused to allow the route to disappear after the last private operator wound up its service in 1999.

At the time, to increase its profits, the operator had decided to concentrate its operations in one place, summarily eliminating the Dieppe-Newhaven route.

Transmanche Ferries' mission was to take all steps to ensure that the trade and tourist links between the Seine Maritime and Somme départements (districts) and the South of England were preserved and developed.

To achieve this goal, by far the most preferable solution was direct action : the chartering of a first ship then the purchase of a second, since experience had shown that the financial interest of a private company were not necessarily compatible with the economic interests and development of a region.

With these two ships, Transmanche can now offer you freight and passenger services every day and all year round.

Although it is publicly owned, Transmanche Ferries is a company like any other. It must deal with the market, handle competition and, following its start-up period, balance its books.

Transmanche Ferries Company Outlook

Transmanche Ferries is not intended to be a stop-gap, but a lasting company.

While a lot has been accomplished since May 2001, much work remains to be done to achieve their quality ambitions.

Nautical conditions on the route are not ideal and they will have to optimise the ports of Dieppe and Newhaven.

Transmanche Ferries also have to position themselves in relation to the colossal craft that are being built today. Also, the available number of ships worldwide that can be adapted to the Newhaven Dieppe ferry route is very low.

In this context, they intend to provide you with services on a human scale. The best solution will be to order purpose-built ships that are optimally suited to the Dieppe-Newhaven route and slightly faster, bringing you a three-hour crossing with all the comfort of a traditional ship.

Transmanche Ferries Passenger Information

Boarding Procedures

All passengers without exception (whatever their age and including groups) must have a valid national identity card or passport with them. For minors not accompanied by their parents or legal guardian, official parental consent for travel outside their national territory must be shown.

Nationals of some countries outside the European Union must obtain a visa before entering the United Kingdom. They should enquire at the British Embassy or Consulate. No visa will be issued at the port of arrival. In accordance with French law no. 88 1091 of 01/12/1988, TRANSMANCHE FERRIES cannot allow any passenger who fails to fulfil these obligations to board.

We would remind you that if you are turned back by immigration at the port of destination, you risk a fine of £2,000 when this occurs in Great Britain and 1524 € when it occurs in France.

Furthermore, if a stowaway were discovered in your vehicle in Newhaven, this would be an offence under the UK Immigration and Asylum Act of 1999, also punishable by a fine of £2.000, and the seizure of your vehicle. For your own security, you will be asked to open the boot of your vehicle and enable the visual inspection of its interior.

Coach Drivers

The road passenger carrier must ensure that all passengers are in possession of valid papers satisfying the requirements of UK immigration law.
The road carrier will also fully compensate TRANSMANCHE FERRIES for any fines or costs, including the repatriation of any passengers in breach of UK immigration law, that may be imposed on it.

Passenger List

Since the 1st January 2000, new international safety regulations have been introduced for all sea carriers. French law has adopted these rules which compel us to identify all passengers. At the time of booking, we will ask for the name, first name, age and sex of each passenger. Since this rule is compulsory, we cannot carry any passenger for whom you fail or omit to give the proper information.


Each driver can benefit from a cabin during the crossing to allow him to arrive relaxed. All Transmanche Ferries cabins are equipped with showers or basin.


The Transmanche Ferries self-service restaurants offer a variety of balanced meals, including a Continental or English breakfast and full buffet. Vegetarian options are always available.


Transanche Ferries shop on board offers a choice of gifts, perfumes, drinks, souvenirs, etc... Ideal for those last minutes presents.

Bars & Lounges

Take the opportunity during the crossing to watch a film in one of the ferry lounges or enjoy a refreshing drink at the bar. Alcoholic and soft drinks available.
