Please let us know when you make your booking what special assistance you require. Not only will this help us provide you with the best service possible, it is also a legal requirement for us to gather this information. 

If you require someone to accompany you to provide assistance please let us know. If we consider it necessary they will travel for free.

Pets can travel free of charge on our Cairnryan to Larne route – so there’s no need to leave your furry friends behind.

If you’re travelling by car you can take up to four pets for free, and all pets must stay in the car while on board.

There are no facilities for foot or coach passengers to travel with their pets and the only pets allowed on the passenger decks are registered Guide or Assistance Dogs. If you’re bringing a pet from outside the UK, you will need to check the legal requirements before you travel.
