    Disability problems

    Please as anyone had experience of someone who has to use a wheelchair and has used the ferry to France?
    I am thinking of traveling to a site in France, and as I am normally on my own I would like to take my brother with me, as it is normally not possible for him to have a holiday as he is 80 years old and uses a wheelchair.
    Is it possible for someone who has difficulty walking to use the ferry, as my brother would have trouble going from from my vehicle to the lift in the ferry

    Hi Eugene

    A friend of mine has a disabled wife who is a wheelchair user and he takes her to France, you need to tell the ferry company that your brother is a wheelchair user and they will make special provision for him.

    In this day and age thankfully I don't think you will have a problem.

      The other possibility is the tunnel where you stay in the car.

      Last year when we went on Condor ferries the disabled (blue badge holders were given priority when loading.

      Dont forget that a blue badge can be used in Europe

        There is a section on the Brittany Ferries website about disabled passengers.

          I use ferry crossings quite a lot even before I received my blue badge, I was always looked after regarding boarding, yes just notify the ferry company on checking in that your brother is a wheelchair and they will make special provision for boarding, no problem in this day and age. Happy safe journey.

            Thanks everyone for your friendly advice. I can see now that it is possible to take my brother on holiday with me as I have made enquiries with the ferries, and they say that providing that I let them know in advance, and switch the hazard lights on when boarding the ferry, this will act as a signal for them to park my vehicle near the lifts.
            Thank you all again.
            Eugene.
