Welcome to our dedicated page on COVID-19 passenger information about our approach to the global crisis. As always, the health and well-being of passengers and crew have and will always be our priority. Any decisions we make will bear this in mind as well as guidance from the States in both Jersey and Guernsey and French and UK authorities.
Prerequisite for travelling on board Commodore Clipper
All passengers (adults and children aged 11 and over) travelling on board Commodore Clipper from the UK or France must provide evidence of a negative Covid-19 test result conducted within 72 hours of departure. The result should be from a PCR or lateral flow test and the certificate presented at check-in. Home tests are not acceptable. Unfortunately, if this is not presented, you will not be able to board your sailing. Please reach out to local authorities or a healthcare provider to find out where you can get a test from. This prerequisite does not apply to Channel Island departures.
Please regularly check our Sailing Updates page for the latest information on our passenger services.
The advice to our passengers is in line with advice from government and state authorities from each of the destinations we serve. The information is correct as of the last updated date at the top of this page.
