Getting to France

There are a number of ways to travel to France. For those of you who prefer to get there quickly there is the option of a flight, or you could travel by channel tunnel. Flights start from £60 per person, and take about an hour. If you wish to travel by channel tunnel you can either take your car with you on the Eurotunnel - prices start from £49, or take a seat on the Eurostar (£51 per person). The Eurotunnel is a quicker journey at 35 minutes, whilst the Eurostar takes approximately 2 and a half hours.

Alternatively, for those of you who prefer to have more space, there is the option of taking a ferry. There are a number of ferries to and from France from the UK. Prices start from £50 per person increasing to £69 and £80 in school holidays and Christmas respectively.

To take your pets with you each pet will need to have an EU Pet Passport and be microchipped or tattoed. Pets are exempt from quarantine under the PETS scheme. Check with the appropriate transport companies to check the regulations for transporting pets.

The EU Pet Passport contains information about the pet such as its owner, identification number and proof of vaccination against rabies. It is issued by the vet and valid for the life of the pet.

What is the PETS scheme?

The PETS scheme (Pet Travel Scheme) is an agreement which was made by several EU countries to allow the movement of pets between these countries free of quarantine regulations. Since its introduction, other non-EU countries which are free from the rabies virus have subscribed to the PETS scheme.
