pregnant women

Pregnant women who travel on our ships must sign the "Information document for pregnant travellers" that Trasmediterranea makes available to them. Women who are more than 36 weeks pregnant cannot travel on our ships. Our staff will try to accommodate them in the quietest places, where there is less passenger traffic, so that they can be more comfortable, as long as this is possible.

travelling with babies and children​

Babies always travel free of charge on their parents' lap without occupying a seat. Although please tell us of their presence when booking the ticket. Children have a discount and under 13-year-olds must always travel with an adult.

Trasmediterranea considers the following:

  • Babies: Under 2 years old. They only pay the port rates and supplement.
  • Children: Aged between 2 years and 13 years (inclusive). They pay 50% of the rate, except for the special rates subject to specific conditions.

Special rates subject to specific conditions:

Rates: It is agreed that no fees shall be charged to the BABIES (of 0-2 years) in those lines either to or from Algeciras, Ceuta or Tangier MED.

Documentation: In order to travel you must have the original, valid documentation as required by current regulations (DNI, passport, NIE), and this must be presented to Transmediterranea staff upon boarding. Minors should be identified by means of a DNI, passport or family register.

Minors under 14 years of age should always be accompanied when travelling. If the accompanying adult is not a parent or legal guardian, a parent or guardian must authorise the child to travel by means of written consent which must be presented alongside a photocopy of the parent's DNI and the family register that the minor is registered in.

If you hold a Resident and/or Large Family Card, we recommend that you carry it with you when the boarding cards are being issued at the boarding counter, just in case there is any kind of computer problems when validating it. So as to carrying out the boarding process in a quick and agile way, we appreciate you having the required documentation at hand.

To benefit from the special rates for babies and children, Trasmediterranea may request passengers to show an official document that accredits the minor's age (family booklet, ID card, passport) if there is a doubt about their age group.
