Hello folk, does anyone know what we need to take with us when getting the ferry from Dublin to Wales. I'll assume passports for us all, log book for the campervan? ....and what's the story with the dog? Do we need to get a passport for the westie? Thanks in advance.

Driving licence for indentification is fine (for now). You are supposed to have pet passports and from recent discussions you may (but probably not) be asked for one on the return journey.

Thanks Albert. We can't find much info on taking the dog across? We heard stories of 6 months quarantine for dogs going to other countries! And stories of getting a passport for a dog, but we can't find much data. Mr.google says a lot about show dogs and exemptions etc., etc.

You should have the logbook (Registration Cert. RF101) with you as proof of ownership if stopped by police.
If you're not on the logbook you need a letter of permission from who is to take the vehicle out of the country.

Great tips and advice, thanks. I've since found out that our local vet will make out a passport and certify the dog has got a Rabies shot. She is microchipped already, so that's sorted, just letting Panda know that a microchip cert is required to make up the passport. Once the Rabies shot has been administered 21 days before arriving in the holdiay country, then the dog is good to go!

Thinking about taking a ramble through the upper part of Wales in July or August, so I'll throw the RF101 (log book) in the glove box along with tickets, our own passports or licences and the dogs paperwork from the vet (aka 'passport').

Mine is 'buried deep' in the mh. I also email myself scanned copied of ALL my documents, passport, licence, insurance, RF101, EHIC card, engine reset code, etc. etc., If the unfortunate happens and all are taken/lost at least I have all the necessary reference numbers etc.

I would add to this that we all should carry with you, your next of kin details with some taught as to who you would like to notified first, some people are better at handling, and passing on, information to others.
