Together & Protected

The health and wellbeing of all onboard, both passengers and crew, continues to be our top priority. Our 12 point guide to sailing safely outlines all the practical steps you need to know, as well as the main measures we have taken to protect you.

Prior to travel please ensure you check your travel documentation to ensure you have everything you need. Further details are available here.

Finally, French law dictates that, whilst in the port and on board, all passengers aged 11 and over and crew are required to wear a mask at all times when in public areas (when not seated to eat or drink). Face coverings in the form of bandanas or scarves are not permitted. We ask that you please respect this requirement, as failure to do so may result in refusal of travel both now and in the future.

If you have a Doctor’s exemption certificate, please send a copy of this to access@brittanyferries.com in advance of travel. Please be aware that, upon embarkation, holders of exemption certificates are required to go immediately to their cabin and remain there for the duration of the sailing as masks must be worn in all public areas.
