Pet friendly cabin on DFDS ferry

Travelling with your pet with DFDS

As part of the DEFRA Pet Travel Scheme (PETS), we provide safe transportation for your pets onboard our ferries. You will have the opportunity to visit your pets on longer crossings, as arranged by the onboard staff. Our Newcastle-Amsterdam and Copenhagen-Oslo crossings even boast pet-friendly cabins.

From 1 January 2021, possible changes to the EU Pet Travel Scheme mean your pet may need to undergo certain checks in order to travel from the UK to Europe. If you are planning to travel with your pet from 1 January 2021, we recommend you contact your vet at least 4 months before travelling for the latest advice. Further details are available here.
