Couple with a dog

It's a dog's life. A pedigree break by sea for you and your best friend.

At Airways Holidays we want to make it easy for you to bring your whole family on holiday with Condor Ferries. We can recommend the best island package for you and your four legged friend. Plus we can offer top tips for travelling together and making the most of your island break.

The Channel Islands offer the perfect break for your canine counterpart, being very dog-friendly with open spaces, sea swims and cliff walks. Also, many pubs and cafes offer bowls of water and dog treats to keep everyone well fuelled for their holiday adventures. Aside from the outdoor activities there are some very welcoming accommodations for you to all stay together in comfort – from 5* luxury at the Old Government House Hotel in Guernsey to self-catering simplicity by the sea at Discovery Bay Apartments in Jersey.

So pack that doggie bag and let us do the rest.

Travelling with your car

Working with Condor Ferries, from the UK to the Channel Islands, we ensure that you have a pawsome and hassle-free ferry crossing. Firstly, when you bring your dog to the Channel Islands there is no need for a dog passport, you just need your own valid photographic ID. Should your dog be travelling in your vehicle there is no additional charge for your four legged friend. If you’re travelling by car with your dog, they must stay in your car during the sailing. You are asked to ensure you leave windows slightly open and leave some water for your dog. Visits can be made to the car deck during the sailing when safe and you will need to be accompanied by a crew member.

Travelling as a foot passenger

When you travel as a foot passenger with your dog, they must travel in an RSPCA approved carrier. Pets aren’t allowed in the passenger lounges however your family friend will be well looked after and will travel in a dedicated pet area on the car deck. In this instance there is a £10 charge each way for your pet.

Life's a Beach

With miles of golden sands for frolicking on and clear waters for splashing in, the Channel Island beaches are a dog’s dream. Our beaches are very dog friendly and to ensure everyone enjoys their time on the beach to the max there are certain rules to follow:

Jersey Beaches

Between 1st October and 30th April, dogs can be exercised on the beach at any time and you do not need to use a lead. Between 1st May and 30th September, dogs must be kept on a lead between 10:30 and 18:00 on all beaches.

Guernsey Beaches

Guernsey’s beaches welcome dogs throughout the year. You will find however, that during the busier summer months from 1st May – 30th September, dogs are not allowed on the following beaches: Fermain, Petit Bot, L'Erée, Vazon (Northern end), Cobo, Port Soif, L'Ancresse and Pembroke. Please note, dogs are not permitted on Lihou Island and Lihou causeway all year round.
