Travelling to Guernsey, Jersey & France
It’s worth noting that car/caravan combinations are not permitted on Guernsey, but they will accept motorhomes up to 6.9m. Both Guernsey and Jersey insist on a permit, and this is something we can help you to arrange.
We are not currently able to carry caravans or motorhomes on our high speed services to and from France.
Before you Travel
Because we travel to different destinations on one voyage, we have to load our ships carefully, so it’s important to have the correct dimensions of your vehicle and caravan (length and height), when you book. Our fares are also calculated on this basis.
We accept online bookings for caravans with a maximum weight of 3.5 tonnes fully laden, and a maximum total length for car and caravan of 13.5m, with no one unit exceeding 7.5m in length.
Motorhomes up to 7m long with a maximum height of 3.1m can also be booked online, so long as they are no heavier than 4.5 tonnes. We ask you to carry only one gas canister of up to 5kg weight, but to make sure it stays turned off whilst you are on board ship.
You can contact us on 0345 609 1024 if you need any more help or information.

Checking in with a caravan
Car check-in closes just 60 minutes before departure, so make sure you get to the port in plenty of time. We recommend you plan your journey carefully in advance, and also keep an eye on our sailing updates too, for any changes in departure times.
When you arrive at the port, just follow the signs to Condor Ferries Car Check-in, making sure you have your booking reference number at the ready. If you’re travelling to France don’t forget to have your passports handy too.
You may be asked to use the weighbridge to confirm that you are within our 3.5 tonnes gross ramp limit, and if you haven’t given us the correct details we won’t be able to let you travel on the day.
Driving onto the Ferry
You’ll be guided onto the ship by our experienced crew and if you're travelling with a towed caravan, you may be required to reverse onto the ships's cardeck. As our ships stop at more than one port, cars have to be loaded in a specific order. So please be patient, as it’s not necessarily first come first served. In fact, it’s likely that you’ll be amongst the last to embark, as some of the more suitable areas for caravans are at the rear of the car deck.
Once you have driven onto the ship and into your parking space, please apply your handbrake, and switch off your car alarm, and make sure any gas cylinders are turned off.
Some of our passengers travel with pets, and it’s important not to distress them in transit. More information on travelling with pets can be found here.
When you leave the vehicle deck make sure you have everything you need with you for the crossing, including your boarding pass, (which you’ll need if you plan to buy anything from our onboard duty free shop), and follow the signs to the main cabin.
There you can enjoy a wide variety of hot food and snacks, a drink in one of our bars, and also make massive savings on your favourite brands, in our onboard duty-free shop!
If you travel in a vehicle with different dimensions to those on your booking form, you will be liable to an excess charge at the port of departure, and may be refused carriage.
