  1. SPS is sanitary and psytosanitary checks if that's what you're asking. Heath checks for freight. The PEC lapses after a certain amount of time. So the captain's will need to do several visits with a pilot to renew it
  2. Yes. A British vet can't enter a rabies vaccination in an EU pet passport. When I say a current EU vet, I mean one practicing in the EU. Not one that was born/trained in the EU but practicing in the UK.
  3. A Spanish pet passport is still valid for travel to the EU as long as the rabies is still valid. The rabies must have been done by a current EU vet or if done by a British vet, done before 01.01.21. If you are concerned about your AHC, feel free to take pictures/scans of every page and PM me .
  4. The idea is to make sure that your new sailing is suitable for your needs and that you can be carried safely and comfortably. And to ensure that any arrangements made can be carried over to the new sailing. For most people and with most ships now it's not so much an issue as it's simply mobility issues. But others needs may be more complex. That's the idea.
  5. As has been said, if the information is wrong or changes (highly likely), BF or whichever carrier has given the information will be blamed. Ultimately it is your responsibility as the passenger to check and comply with the entry requirements, the carrier can only do so much. I don't know what the original question was as there's a lot to read back through. But everyone over the age of 12 requires a negative PCR or Antigen test (no NHS tests) taken within 24 hours of departure. The exceptions to this are if you are fully vaccinated (7 days since your second jab or 28 if you happen to have a single dose vaccine) or have a certificate of recovery. Evidence of this is required.
  6. You can't change the type of ticket. That would defeat the entire point. Eg, you want to cancel your economy booking so you change it to Flexi to benefit from the more generous cancellation fees
  7. I'm sure plenty of people have experienced issues with them. They are incredibly complex and specific. I strongly advise you check the requirements and the certificate thoroughly. Your vet should know what they are doing and complete it correctly, but there's a very good chance that won't be the case As far as I know they are all checked by the authorities on arrivals in Spain
  8. Yes the 72 hours is now correct. If you have received the QR code and form to present and all the information you input is correct, I can't forsee any problems
  9. I'm being optimistic! Naivety is bliss.. I assume you have amended the original booking and have a balance on that booking to use. The only way to add a return to that is in house, I don't think you can do it online but not sure. If the new return has been made within 24 hours, you can cancel it with a full refund. It's possible to create a voucher for the balance in booking 1 which can then be applied to booking 2. But whether that is allowed is another question.
  10. I've said it before, but once more. If you haven't travelled on Cap Finistere and want to, do it this year! No and no at the moment.
  11. I think the purpose of these rotations is to support Brittany as a region. Also I'm not sure there is much benefit in squeezing in sailings (and their running costs) when Portsmouth - Caen is still a viable option that's not too far out the way for haulers.
  12. I'll save you the effort and say there's nothing of great interest. The only things of 'interest' will be the coverage of freight only routes.
  13. That has always been the case but is being advised properly now. Depending on your own circumstances, no 9C doesn't necessarily mean no travel (unless that's what you prefer of course).
  14. Indeed You'll have to wear high heels or take the tunnel.
