We can reserve space on the Ferry for your group once we have received the 25% deposit and if the space is available.

In certain circumstances we may be able to secure space that would otherwise not be available; this is not guaranteed, however our team will endeavour to meet your group’s requirements.

Can I add / remove passengers from my group?

Making a group booking through AFerry Groups means that you will have the flexibility to make changes to passenger numbers as many times as you require however please be aware that ferry companies may apply cancellation fees for reducing the number of people on your booking. Any additions will be subject to availability at the time the change is made.

Will I receive tickets before I travel?

For most operators you will receive a booking reference number to take with you to the port when you travel. This will be on the confirmation email which you receive from us once the booking has been made. Customers are advised to print this out and take it with them to the port.

Alternatively we will advise you if tickets are to be issued.

What is the minimum group size?

The minimum number of passengers to qualify as a group booking is 10.

Can I transfer my booking to another route?

Not all operators will allow this but our staff will be happy to look in to this for you, as long as the routes are with the same operator. Simply contact us on our dedicated AFerry Groups number.

Do I need a passport?

All passengers will require a current passport when travelling on international routes.

British or Irish citizens travelling on the Irish Sea routes do not need a passport to travel to Britain or Ireland but are advised to take some form of identity. For example a driving licence, citizenship card or utility bill will usually be sufficient. A birth certificate will provide adequate proof of identity for your child to travel.

Other passport holders should check with the relevant embassy regarding passport, documents and visa requirements.

It is the customers responsibility to ensure all those travelling have the correct documentation.
