Travel Guarantee

Travel Guarantee

At DFDS we’re doing everything we can to ensure you arrive at your destination relaxed and ready to enjoy your trip. We’ve introduced several measures onboard including staggered boarding and disembarkation, social distancing and the wearing of masks in public areas.

For added peace of mind, our Travel Guarantee means you can enjoy free re-booking for travel, through to 30 September 2022. This is available on all our routes from the UK to Europe. Just call us at least 24 hours before your trip to rebook for free.

If you are unable to commit to a travel date in 2021, we will hold onto your credit and you can simply call us to rebook once sailings for 2022 become available later this year. See terms and conditions for more details.
