Pets on Ferry! - United Kingdom

This is great, especially for our customers who pet travel in the pet friendly UK!

Bring Fido on the ferry with Stena Line!

Leading ferry operator Stena Line now boasts new and improved kennels for the beloved dog to provide a comfortable place to rest while owners enjoy the new on board experience on Stena Lines newly lengthened and refurbished Superferries.

As part of the latest refurbishments on the Stena Britannica, which sails on the Harwich Җ Hook of Holland route, Stena Line have ensured that there is enough room in each of their well-ventilated kennels for petite pooches to colossal canines. The pet area is situated in a special quiet area of the vessel to ensure traveling pets can remain as calm and tranquil as possible during the crossing. The Stena Hollandica will also soon have its own designated pet area to ensure that no matter which of the ferries customers choose to travel on, they can rest assured that pet travel to Holland with Stena Line will be stress free for both pets and owners.

Stena Line already gives dog owners who wish to transport their pet the option to house their dog within their own vehicle for the duration of the crossing, whilst those traveling with a cat can keep them in the comfort of their own cat boxes inside the car. With Stena Line prices for pet travel to Holland costing less than a few days at most boarding kennels, the service is proving to be popular amongst pet owners and makes bringing a pet along to enjoy the holiday a pleasing alternative compared with leaving them in a kennel.

Last year Stena Line transported over 2,700 cats and dogs across the North Sea, with the majority of dogs crossing during the summer holidays. This displays a rising trend for UK travelers to take their pets on holiday with them.

Holland has always proved a popular destination for travelers, boasting a range of outdoor activities for holidaymakers, with or without their pets, from walks in the parks or along the many canals of Rotterdam to cycling Hollands picturesque towns and countryside.
