    The following assistance animals will be accepted for travel in the passenger lounges;
    Guides dogs for hearing and blind

  • Travelling as a Foot Passenger

  • Can I book a bicycle online? Is there any additional charge?

    There is not normally a charge for checking in a bicycle providing you supply details when you book. Numbers of bicycles per crossing are strictly limited and if you arrive with a bicycle without a booking you may be asked to leave your bike behind. You can book your bicycle online, over the phone or at the port. For more information please see our ‘Help & Advice Section here.

  • As a foot passenger, when do I have to check in?

    Foot check-in closes 40 minutes before departure, anyone arriving at our booths after this time could find they are unable to travel on their booked crossing. Please leave sufficient time for any queues at check-in, we advise foot passengers to arrive 70 minutes before your departure. By printing your e-boarding card at home, there’s now no need to check in at our ticket offices, you can board at the security gates making the process quicker and more efficient. In Jersey, you will need to visit the baggage check-in area, if checking in luggage.

    Once all booked passengers are checked in and have boarded, check-in will close and the ship can depart earlier than the scheduled departure time. Passengers who miss the check-in cut-off will not be entitled to a refund but may be able to book on the next available sailing, subject to availability and after paying the relevant fare in full.

  • I have some luggage as a foot passenger, is there anywhere I can store this?

    You may take one piece of hand luggage per person, such as a handbag or backpack free of charge. Anything larger will need to be checked-in and weigh a maximum of 25kg. Carry on bags must fit within the following dimensions: H56cm x W45cm x D25cm. Any bag exceeding H56cm x W45cm x D25cm will need to be checked in and placed in the hold.

    Personal luggage used for social, domestic or private purposes may be carried by foot passengers free of charge. Only luggage that may reasonably be described as hand baggage, for example a small handbag or small backpack may be carried by day trip Passengers and shall be carried at the sole discretion of the Company.

    All single items of portable luggage larger than a handbag/small backpack (e.g. rucksacks, suitcases - hold luggage) should be checked in and bags checked in should weigh no more than 25kg per bag. All personal accompanied luggage will be weighed at Check in, and anything weighing between 20 and 25 kilograms should be labelled as heavy.

    Please note: For your own safety and comfort, on busy sailings all bags are required to be checked in. Only small handbags and small rucksacks will be allowed in seating areas.

    For more details please see our Terms and Conditions.

  • Group Travel

  • I am travelling as part of a group, how do I make this booking and is there any discounts available or special fares?

    We have a dedicated Group Travel Team who will be delighted to help you with your booking. You can complete a registration form here and the Groups Team will be in touch with you. We offer discounts for groups of 10 or more passengers. This is typically 10% off Standard Fares, including seating or cabin upgrades. Bookings for groups of persons (being 10 or more people) aged 16 and/or 17 will not be permitted without an accompanying responsible adult travelling at the same time.

  • How do I pay for the Group Booking?

    We accept most major credit & debit cards (except for American Express and Electron) and do not apply charges for customers using credit or debit cards when making bookings. Group Bookings require a 10% or £100.00 deposit whichever is greater upon confirming the booking and must be paid in full a minimum 30 days before date of travel.

  • What are the cancellation terms for a Group Booking?

    We recommend our customers to change their bookings to an alternate date. We have waived all amendment fees so you will only need to pay any difference in fare should you choose a more expensive sailing. If you’d like to amend your booking we’d suggest you do this via live chat here.

    Cancellation fees
    We offer two types of ticket for travel – day trip and standard tickets and different conditions apply to each if you wish to cancel your booking.

    Day trip tickets
    We do not offer a refund on day trip bookings, therefore a 100% fee will apply. However, you can amend your booking online free of charge 7 days prior to travel should your plans change.

    Standard tickets
    You can cancel a standard ticket and the following fees apply depending on when the booking is cancelled. Below charges are applicable per booking for the total journey price and in all cases, 100% of the booking fee and amendment fee is chargeable upon cancelling the booking.

    Please see our cancellation charges here. 

    If that is something you are not happy with, please email Customer Relations who will then review your email and let you know what action we can take based on your original booking. Please bear with us, however, as it may take some time to respond, given the extenuating circumstances at the moment.

    We understand this is a difficult situation, but we would like you thank you for your support in these difficult times.

    Please note that if a passenger fails to cancel a booking before the latest check in time or does not join the sailing as booked, a 100% charge of the value of that journey will be levied.

  • Is there any charge to amend a Group Booking?

    Yes. Amendment fees are applicable in addition to any difference in the fare.  Amendment fees apply per amendment per booking.  Amendment fees are shown below

  • Unaccompanied children

  • Do you allow unaccompanied children to travel?

    Condor Ferries does not accept unaccompanied minors under the age of 16 years for travel on any of its services. Children aged 16 or 17 may travel unaccompanied if their parent or guardian provides their written consent at the time of booking, otherwise, travel may be refused. The child must also have their own passport. Travel will not be allowed where a child is included on their parent/guardian's passport, and they are not present.

     

    French residents seeking travel will require written approval as required under French Law. A 16 – 18-year-old may accompany up to two others below the age of 16, on the same basis and at the absolute discretion of Condor Ferries regarding the safety of the same. No persons under 18 will be accepted for travel on overnight services such as those provided on Commodore Clipper unless accompanied by an adult 18 and over. Groups of 16 & 17-year-olds will not be accepted without an accompanying adult (1 adult to every 10 young people).

     

  • Can a child travel to/from France without their parent or legal guardian?

    Any minor travelling to or from France without a parent or legal guardian must possess a letter of consent written by the parent/guardian. Failure to do so might result in the denial of travel permission. Additionally, the minor must hold an individual passport as travelling under the parent/guardian's passport without the parent/guardian present will not be allowed.

    Onboard help

    If you need help getting setup whilst onboard, a member of crew may be able to help you.

     

  • Can I use Wi-Fi in my cabin on the Clipper?

    We advise that Wi-Fi should be used in the public areas of the ship – Bar, Brasserie, Club and Quiet Lounges. Unfortunately there is no guarantee that Wi-Fi will work in passenger cabins due to the number of walls/bulkheads.

  • When do my free minutes start and end?

    Your free 30mins access starts the moment you are shown the ‘You’re connected’ page and you will have internet access for a continuous 30minute period, or until 100MB data is used.
