Apart from some trips / situations where you can also opt for the ferry or plane, the cargo is almost always the only way to transport your vehicle with the choice of roll-on / roll- off “(roro) or” container carriers “.

In a container carrier (the most recommended), the vehicle is protected and cannot move during transport; moreover nobody knows its contents (useful at the level “desires”). Inside, the vehicle is securely fastened with ropes and wooden blocks nailed into the container. You can leave your belongings inside as well as share the container to several roommates. Close all vehicle doors and keep the keys. The container will be closed with a seal of which you will keep the number, but be present on the premises for opening and closing.

As for “roro”, they offer less guarantees for it is true lower costs. There, the vehicle is on deck and you cannot leave your luggage with it. Better to pay a bit more money and have your car well protected and not in the open air and sea water.

In France the two main ports of transit where to embark are Le Havre and Marseille. If one leaves from abroad it is not useful to reserve its boats from France. Indeed, the on-site organization will generally be safer (you will be there), easier and cheaper. Allow about a week to arrange a departure (2 days in Singapore but up to 20 days in India!) And also plan a few days on arrival. Virtually all inter-port links are possible. On the busiest lines we can find a boat leaving on average every ten days, for the others … The crossing times are of course a function of distances; count about 600 km / day.
