Pregnant women and kids on board - FAQs - Baleària

Pregnant women, babies and children
 

What fare applies to children aged between 1 and 13 years?

Children aged between 1 and 13 receive a discount on the fare. Bear in mind that we take into account the age of the child on the date of travel, not the age when the booking is made, and that in the event of any doubt we may ask you for some official document (Family Book, ID card, passport…) providing proof of age.

We meanwhile remind you that in order to take advantage of the special Baleària fares for babies and children, we may in the event of any doubt as to the child's age request an official document (Family Book, ID card, passport…) providing proof of age.

What documentation do I need to take to travel with a child aged under 14?

Children under the age of 14 and who are travelling within Spain must be accompanied by an adult.  Should the child be less than 5 years old, said adult must be at least 18 year of age; if said child is between 5 and 13 years of age, the accompanying adult must be at least 16 year of age and have his/her own officially issued ID.  Should the accompanying person not be the child’s parent/s or legal guardian, said child must travel with written consent from his/her parent/s or legal guardian, with the accompanying person providing a copy of his/her official ID/passport and the child’s passport.   

Above what age can a legal minor travel alone?

All children over the age of 14 can travel alone if they show their officially issued ID card or Passport

What services are available on board the ships for children and babies?

Baby changing facilities are available on all ships. On ferries with a restaurant, high chairs and children's menus are available, while on ships with cabins you may request a travel cot and safety barrier at reception. With regard to leisure facilities, some ships have children's play areas, children's audiovisual entertainment, and in high season monitor-supervised workshops and activities.

Can I travel if I am more than 28 weeks pregnant?

Yes, you can travel if you are under 36 weeks pregnant (or 32 in the case of multiple pregnancies), although you must indicate this when booking and present together with your boarding card a certificate issued a maximum of 7 days before travel indicating:

• Your personal details, weeks and type of pregnancy (single or multiple), and the expected birth date.
• That you are in perfect condition to travel on the indicated date(s).
• The validity period of the certificate.
• The name and medical association number of the doctor, signature and contact details. If you do not present this documentation, we reserve the right to refuse embarkation, cancelling the ticket and refunding the entire price.

Can I travel if I am more than 36 weeks pregnant (or 32 in the case of multiple pregnancies)?
