Every passenger has unique needs and expectations

Each year, 2,500,000 passengers put their trust in Brittany Ferries. They come from many different countries; however the majority are British (87%). Every one travels in his own way – on foot, by bike or motorbike, in a car, coach or lorry, alone or with his or her family (perhaps taking the family pet), or as part of a group.
However every passenger shares one common experience. The moment he or she steps on board, the holiday begins, and they can enjoy a level of comfort normally only found aboard a cruise ship.
A warm, attentive welcome, quality hospitality and catering, high end facilities – these are the keystones of our savoir-faire.

An expert in maritime transport

Brittany Ferries is acknowledged as a leader in the field of maritime transport, operating from 12 ports in France, Great Britain, Ireland and Spain. 
Our ships fly the French flag and between then they sail around 750,000 nautical miles per year – the equivalent of 35 times around the planet.
