Ferry Booking Information

P&O, which operates the shortest ferry crossing across the English Channel (Dover-Calais and Calais-Dover), will only transport livestock that is for breeding or milking and only if the booking is made via the National Sheep Association (for sheep) and National Beef Association (for cattle).

This is the procedure for making a booking for sheep with NSA:-

  1. For each crossing, email a completed booking form to NSA at least three working days before the date of travel. Email both [email protected] and [email protected] and please note that booking forms will only be processed during office hours (9am-5.30pm Monday-Friday). NSA cannot guarantee late bookings will be processed in time.
  2. Make payment for the crossing at the point of booking. To make a payment, call NSA on 01684 892661 within the office hours provided above and either provide your credit/debit card details or request bank details to pay by BACS. Bookings will not be passed to P&O until payment is received. For your own security, do not email credit/debit card details.
  3. Once payment has been received, your booking will be made and your Waybill emailed to you. The Waybill can be used within a 14-day window but, if not used, you can contact NSA to request a refund. Refunds are processed within one month, once confirmation has been received from P&O that the booking has not been used. The NSA administration charge will not be refunded.
  4. In the event of a difference between the booking with NSA and the passage with P&O, any additional charge to NSA will be passed on to the customer. Please be accurate when selecting your vehicle length on the booking form to avoid this happening. Future bookings will not be processed if there is an outstanding balance with NSA.

For any questions, call NSA Head Office. Prices are for Dover-to-Calais and Calais-to-Dover. Add £15 per person for any additional people travelling over and above the two drivers included in the prices below.
