2020 Travel Guarantee – Free Cancellations

At DFDS we’re thrilled to be welcoming customers back onboard our ferries from the UK to France and we’re doing everything we can to ensure you arrive at your destination relaxed and ready to enjoy your holiday. We’ve introduced several measures onboard including staggered boarding and disembarkation, social distancing and the wearing of masks in public areas.

We understand that plans might change which is why we’ve introduced our Travel Guarantee.
