Fit to travel Form

The fit to travel form is intended to ensure that the health of the passenger is compatible with a journey on board Brittany Ferries ships.

Any passenger with a health issue and/or a disability or reduced mobility, even temporary, is required to inform us at least 48 hours before departure. After an exchange with our customer services department to assess your situation, a fit to travel form may be sent to you if we deem it necessary to receive additional information. The 2 pages of the form must be completed by your doctor. Page 1 of the form will have to be returned at least 48 hours before departure at Page 2 will have to be in your possession at all times during your sailings. It will help the on-board medical team if necessary. Please note that Page 2 of the form contains medical information only intended for the on-board medical service and it should not be shared by email.

A Fit to Travel form will be requested: 

  • If you have been hospitalised in the last two months 

  • If you have a chronic medical or psychiatric condition. “Chronic conditions" refer to long-term diseases that evolve over time (diabetes, heart diseases (infarction, angina, etc.), lung diseases (asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), etc.), kidney disease, cancer, stroke, high blood pressure, polyarthritis, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer's or Parkinson's disease, nervous breakdown, etc.). 

  • If you require oxygen for any reason

  • If you have been diagnosed with an infectious disease

  • If you have been in contact with someone diagnosed with or tested positive for COVID-19.

If you are unable to present the fit to travel form, you will not be allowed to travel. 

The Captain may refuse the embarkation of passengers whose physical or mental health: 

  • is likely to make their journey impossible or dangerous to themselves or to other passengers, or which 

  • requires care and assistance arrangements that cannot be provided on board 

The Captain may be assisted by National Health departments to make their decision. If, during a crossing, a passenger finds themself in conditions that no longer allow them to continue the travel, the Captain may decide to evacuate them from the ship for medical treatment.
