Please check the P&O website or their Twitter feed for the latest advice.
The Club will continue to do all it can to preserve Club members' access to the widest number of crossing routes to enable Club members to make their own choices of crossing provider.

On Hull routes, in order to comply with Defra regulations (www.defra.gov.uk), P&O can't allow animals to be left in vehicles therefore kennels must be booked.
On the Liverpool-Dublin route, pets are no longer permitted to travel in vehicles and as P&O cannot offer kennels, unfortunately pets can no longer travel on this route (except for guide dogs).
