Vehicle Categories

In order to get you and all vehicles safely and quickly on board, we need the exact details of your vehicle. To ensure a smooth check-in and boarding process, please include your vehicle type and registration number when booking.

Check in

The car check-in at the port of Amsterdam (IJmuiden) and Newcastle is very well signposted. First, drive to the check-in counter and keep your ID card / passport, if applicable, your visa and the booking confirmation ready. Passengers with vehicles must be checked in at least 60 minutes before departure, passengers without a vehicle must be checked in at least 45 minutes before departure. Afterwards we reserve the carriage.

Catering facilities and sanitary facilities are available in the terminal buildings.


Passengers can get off at the terminal or only when the vehicle is in the car deck. If you want to get off at the terminal, please remember to bring your luggage with you. For the foot passengers the way aboard is also signposted.

If you drive on the ferry, our staff will instruct you and ensure that you place your vehicle correctly on the car deck. Before leaving your vehicle, remember to stop the engine and apply the handbrake. Our local colleagues will gladly help you with any questions. Please note that all passengers of our ships must be accommodated in cabins and camping on the ship is not allowed on all routes.
