I’m a British / Irish Citizen. Do I need a passport to travel on the ferry?
British or Irish citizens travelling on our Irish Sea routes do not need a passport to travel to Britain or Ireland but are advised to take a form of identity. A valid passport, photographic driving license, International Student Card, government issued photo ID card, health insurance/social security photographic card, photographic bus/train pass or EU Citizen Identity Card will usually suffice. A birth certificate will provide adequate proof of identity for children (17 years and under with no photographic identification) to travel on our sailings.
All customers travelling to and from the Netherlands on the Harwich - Hook of Holland route must have a valid passport. You will not be permitted to travel to and from Holland without a valid passport.
Customers travelling to France on our Rosslare - Cherbourg route require a valid passport.
Remember that the name on your passport must match the name on your booking, otherwise you may not be able to travel and your insurance may be invalid. Other passport holders should check with the relevant embassy regarding passport and visa requirements.
