Cross the English Channel with our routes connecting the UK and France. We offer two routes into Dover from Calais and Dunkirk, and another route from Dieppe to Newhaven.

With regular departures in both directions, it’s easy to fit a ferry crossing into your holiday schedule. Having your own vehicle with you also means you don’t have to worry about luggage limits, and you can explore and travel at your own pace.

Please note: You cannot travel as a foot passenger on the two routes: Dunkirk-Dover and Calais-Dover, you can only travel with a vehicle.
