No train, you will need a taxi (that will take dogs of course). Sorry

Will really depend on the driver. No rules about this. So if first taxi in the queue refuses because he's afraid of hairs etc., get next one...

All the best,

The P&O website says:

"Foot and coach passengers are unable to carry pets, with the exception of registered guide and hearing dogs."

So as I understand it, the no-pets rule does not only apply to the coach, but to the ferry itself as well, unless you are travelling by car.

""the animals remain inside air-conditioned kennels on the vehicle decks during the duration of the crossing.

For those wishing their dog, cat or ferret to travel under the PETS passport scheme, the most up to date information can be obtained from the Defra website, as well as quarantine requirements for pets that do not qualify under the scheme. Please note, cats and dogs must be vaccinated against rabies. The length of the waiting period before entry to the UK is 21 days after the first vaccination date.

Have a look at http://9292.nl/ , they can advice you some other way how to get to Europort, e.g. by Fast Ferry to Pistoolhaven. (8km from Europort, Luxemburgweg) If you don´t mind walking with the dogs, they advice to walk over 1 hour. I haven´t found out if there´s some taxi available in Pistoolhaven yet. I have the same problem with our dog but too much luggage for walking! Good luck! Mirka.
