Travelling With Pets/Animals

I'd rather not leave my dog in the car. Is there an alternative?

 Irish Sea and Rosslare-Cherboug routes

Pets can travel in kennels on all routes between Britain, Ireland and France but must be pre-booked in advance of travel on the “Stena Plus & Onboard Extras” step of the booking process.

On the Belfast to Liverpool route, it is recommended to pre-book a dog lodge for £15 single which will allow access to your pet throughout the crossing. Not only can you visit your dog but you can also exercise them under controlled conditions.

On all other Irish Sea routes and our Rosslare-Cherbourg route, kennels can be pre-booked at no additional cost.

Guide, hearing and autism assistance dogs have full access to the passenger decks on all Stena Line routes and vessels and also the passenger lounges at our ports.


Harwich-Hook of Holland

Alternatively to travelling in your car, pets can travel in our kennels. You will be able to keep an eye on them via the kennel camera which you can watch from your cabin TV.


Pets cost £16 per animal for a single leg crossing and we recommend that you check that their EU passport has been completed in accordance with the PETS rules.


Guide dogs are permitted to accompany their owners onto the passenger decks and are also allowed into their cabin during the crossing.
