P&O Ferries Dover customers left high and dry

Wednesday, Apr 06, 2022 0

Travellers booked to travel with P&O Ferries from Dover this weekend are facing more uncertainty after rival operator DFDS said it won’t now honour Easter P&O tickets on cross-channel services.

Passengers are now asked to rebook themselves, and ty to claim money back directly from P&O Ferries.

“All P&O Ferries services are suspended this weekend. For travel 8/9/10 April please re-book directly with another operator before arriving at the port. DFDS will not be able to transfer P&O customers onto their services,” the company tweeted.

P&O ticketholders had been able to travel with DFDS from Dover, and can still do so until Friday.

DFDS said it cannot accommodate any more due to already high passenger loads, in part caused by the P&O Ferries situation.

The issue is having far-reaching effects beyond the cross-channel market.

Ferry company Stena Line suspended all Fishguard to Rosslare, Ireland sailings and is shifting a ship to the Larne to Cairnryan crossing.

P&O’ vessels have not operated between Larne in Northern Ireland and Cairnryan in Scotland since it sacked 800 of its workers without notice in March.
