Travelling on Foot

Travelling on Foot

Helpful advice and information to help you plan your ferry trip on foot. Whether on business or visiting the islands for the day, Condor Ferries offer a convenient and simple service to get you to your final destination.

Checking in on foot

Please ensure that you check in no later than 40 minutes before your departure time. On arrival at the port office check in desk, please show your booking confirmation, and if travelling to France your passport. You will then be given your boarding cards.

After receiving your boarding cards you will be directed through to the waiting lounge before it is time to board the ship.


When your time comes to embark, you will be asked to board the ship as required and you will be greeted by a member of staff and asked for your boarding cards. The stubs will be torn off and the cards returned to you. Your boarding cards should be kept with you at all times. You will need to show them if asked to do so, and if you wish to make a purchase in the onboard Duty Free shop.

Disembarking on foot

The Cabin Manager will announce when it is safe to disembark the ship at the port of arrival. Directions will also be given in order to ensure passengers on foot disembark the ship accordingly.

Please take care when disembarking the ship.

Personal Luggage

Passengers on foot can carry up to 25kg of personal luggage free of charge and it must be labelled with name and destination. Luggage will be checked-in, loaded on-board and will be ready for collection in the arrivals hall at your destination.

Excess luggage may be accepted, subject to space availability, and will be charged at appropriate rate.

Please bear in mind that the following items are charged at cargo rates: camping equipment, musical instruments, filming and radio transmitting equipment, commercial samples, and surf and windsurfing boards.

If you are a day trip passenger, please note that only hand baggage is permitted.



If you are travelling between the UK and the Channel Islands, then your passport is not needed. But don't forget you'll need a valid passport for travel to and from France.

Passengers travelling to and from St. Malo must ensure that their passport(s) is available for inspection and the correct and valid documentation is being carried. Visas are required by some non EEC nationals.
