Europe on your doorstep

Europe on your doorstep

You’ll sail from Newcastle early evening and you’ll enjoy a relaxing overnight crossing to Holland, arriving into our port in IJmuiden near Amsterdam next morning. From there it’s only 90 minutes to the German and Belgian border and 3 hours to France. The return sailing departs at 5.30pm and arrives back to Newcastle the next morning.

Taking your own vehicle to Europe by ferry takes the hassle out of your holiday. You decide what you want to pack, where to go and how long you stay. Book with DFDS and you can travel with your car, motorhome, caravan or motorcycle and upgrade your cabin to travel in style.
