Priority Boarding

Start your trip early

Priority boarding is available on our Dover to Calais and Dover to Dunkirk routes and is the best way to start your holiday. You'll be one of the first set of passenger vehicles to board and disembark, leaving you more time to relax onboard or driving towards your destination.

  • Reduce your queuing time
  • Be among the first vehicles to board and disembark
  • Only available for cars under 2.2m high, all other vehicles will be refused
  • £10 per car each way
  • You'll check in as usual and special boarding lanes, reducing the time spent queuing to board. You'll also enjoy speedy disembarking when you arrive, meaning you'll be on the open road before you know it.

Available for just £10 per car, simply add priority boarding when booking. Please note, priority boarding is limited to 20 slots per crossing and is only available for vehicles less than 2.2m high. You’ll need to check in no less than one hour before departure.
