Are you required to provide passport details when booking on shuttle train or ferry to the Netherlands?

  • A much more important question is whether or not those details are checked by anyone: travel.stackexchange.com/questions/79636/… – JonathanReez Oct 28 '17 at 11:05

    Traveled from Hull to Rotterdam in March, didn't give passport details and my mate spelt my name wrong on the booking, they didn't even notice that. – BritishSam Apr 9 '18 at 7:33

While I don't have an complete answer, I think you are quite unlikely to be asked for a passport number when booking this journey. Nationals from the EEA and Switzerland don't even need a passport for travelling to the UK or the Netherlands.

As a test I tried to make a booking for a ferry and an eurostar (train) trip and neither asked me for passport details. See the images below for what the details are you need to provide:

Eurostar: Eurostar booking

Stena ferries: Stena ferries
