Pet travel to Europe

Take your pet on holiday too...

No there is no reason why any member of your family should be left at home. Travel on the Harwich-Esbjerg route with your car and from only £19 each way you can take your pet under the pet travel scheme. 

All our facilities have been checked by the governing bodies to ensure that your pet is safe and comfortable when onboard.

You can even visit them during the crossing by asking a member of staff at customer services when onboard the ferry.

Truffles is part of the family so it was lovely to be able to bring her on holiday with us. Thank you DFDS Seaways!
