Caen Ferry Port Guide


The historic Norman city of Caen is the capital of the Lower Normandy region, and home to one of the newest ferry ports serving the English Channel. The terminal is located nine miles (15kms) north of the city itself, and ferries bound for England leave from the Ouisterham dock.

Within the modern terminal facility you will find a range of amenities from ATM machines, bureaux de change, restaurants and cafs. There is good wheelchair access throughout the terminal, but passengers with special needs should inform the relevant authorities before arrival.

Brittany Ferries connects the north coast of France with Portsmouth in southern England with its Transmanche ferries, with the trip taking about six hours. The voyage is done overnight, with arrival times on either side of the Channel at 06:30.

Both the English and the French ports on this route are situated a convenient distance from both countries' capitals. It's a two hour drive from Portsmouth to London, and Paris is about three and a half hour drive from the coast.

Caen is easily reachable by hire car, with motorways to Paris and both east and west passing directly south of the city. If you're arriving from England and wish to rent a car in Caen, you should arrange this online beforehand to make your as holiday comfortable as possible. We offer cheap car hire at Caen Ferry Port through reputable car hire agencies.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.
