    do you have to fill in API for ferries? I booked mine through the CC and I can't find anywhere on the DFDS website that says we have to, but tunnel does so I was wondering if I had to.

    Travelled out last week (P&O Dover Calais) and didn't have to fill out an API. It was booked 3 months ago and I thought they would ask me at check in, but nope, gave booking number, printed boarding pass and off you go sir. (y)

    Even if they were organised you wouldn't be able to fill it out when you get there. It stands for Advance Passenger Information. The whole point of it is that you provide the information in advance, before you get there.

    Nope, nothing at all didn't even ask how many were travelling (as they have always done when we have used the tunnel)

    Waved through all custom posts without stopping, gave check in gal my number and she printed the boarding pass.

    Got a reminder from P & O to bring our passport.... I had not thought of that.
