SCHOOL & YOUTH FERRY TRIPS

If you’re planning a trip to Europe with a school or youth group, then we can assist you in arranging a fun and comfortable crossing to Europe, both on foot or with a coach.

If you’re travelling from the south of England, then choose our routes from Dover to Dunkirk and Calais. However, if you’re travelling from northern England or Scotland, our daily, overnight sailing on a ferry to Holland may be more convenient or you.

Call us on 0871 522 9933 or send an email to uk.groups@dfds.com for more information.
