Ski Holidays with Dogs
For the animal lovers - your dog friendly ski holidays
Why not bring your dog along for your next ski holiday and make them part of the memories! France is a dog-friendly country and many residences allow pets in their apartments.
Some ski apartments limit the number of pets allowed per apartment to one, but Ski Collection has a great choice of multi-pet ski accommodation to select from too! Charges will be applicable depending on the fees fixed by the accommodation, and in most cases, the only rule is that dogs must be kept on a lead at all times in the residence.

The cost for your pet to travel with Eurotunnel Le Shuttle is £19/26€ for each leg of the journey. So, £38 return.
This fee applies to each dog, cat or ferret in your vehicle. Pets need to stay in your car during crossing. You will need to visit the Pet Control booth in Calais before check-in lanes so they can carry out checks
It costs £15 per pet each way to travel on the Dover to Calais route, so £30 return, with registered Guide and Hearing Dogs travelling free of charge.
Dogs, cats or ferrets are allowed on their ships with pet passports, as long as they meet all the EU requirements. All pets must stay in your vehicle during the trip. Check-in at least 60 mins before return.
The crossing charge is £25 (UK to France) £24.75 (France to UK) per dog.
Pets are only allowed in pet-friendly cabins and the designated exercise area.
Please note these prices are a guide only and will be confirmed on booking.
Last but not least, some helpful hints before you leave:
- Be sure you have the Pet Passport safe as no other documentation will be accepted. The pet must have been micro chipped and had the necessary vaccinations.
- Dogs must be at least 3 months old to travel.
- Label your dog: put your English number and the name of your accommodation in case you lose your dog.
- Check that your dog is not a banned breed in France.
- If you have a long journey ahead: remember to give your pet a light meal before you go, and pack small few snacks! It’s always good to plan to make few stops during the journey as well.
- Don’t forget a pack additional items with leads, beds, toilets bags etc.
