School and Youth Ferry Trips
If you’re planning a trip to Europe with a school or youth group, then DFDS are here to help make it easy. We can assist you in arranging a fun and comfortable crossing to Europe from the UK, both on foot or with a coach.
If you’re travelling from the south of England, then our routes from Dover to Dunkirk and Calais offer a quick and convenient way to cross the Channel to the continent. 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.
Offers for coach drivers & teachers
Excellent onboard facilities
No baggage restrictions
Convenient crossings to Europe from the north and south of England
Gateway to Europe
Once you’ve arrived in any of our European ports, you’ll find easy and convenient access to main cities and popular destinations across the continent thanks to Europe’s excellent motorway network.
Explore sites of historic events and battlefields, visit the homes of famous artists, writers and historical figures, experience some of the world’s best museums or discover the settings of classic literature with your group. With easy access to France, Holland, Germany and Belgium, you’re sure to find something suitable for your group.
Travelling in a coach?
Ferry travel is perfect for groups. Travel on one of our packaged short breaks with your friends, your school or even your sports club!
No matter what sort of trip you’re looking for, our dedicated group travel team can help you organise it to give you exactly what you want at a great price.
