DFDS from Dover

DFDS offers several routes for crossing the Channel, connecting various ports in England and France.

Dover Calais Tickets from DFDS

On these DFDS routes vehicles are mandatory

DFDS ships have designated areas for vehicles, allowing passengers to bring their cars, motorcycles, or bicycles on board. 

This is particularly convenient for those planning to explore their destination or travel with their own vehicles. As a foot passenger, you are not allowed to board DFDS ferries. If you want to travel by foot, you have to sail with P&O Ferries.

DFDS operates a fleet of modern and well-equipped vessels for Channel crossings. The ships are designed to accommodate both passengers and vehicles, providing a convenient transportation option for individuals, families, and businesses.

A Video about crossing the channel with DFDS

Nice takeaways from the Video:

  • If you get in first, there is a big chance you can also leave first. 
  • There is a very nice breakfast on board the DFDS vessel.
  • Don’t go on the toilet just before departing if you are the first to leave
