About us...

The FRS Group has been present in Spain since 2000, when it began operating the Strait of Gibraltar routes through the divisions FRS Iberia and FRS Maroc.

FRS is the only shipping company which operates all of the routes on the Strait of Gibraltar and other important routes:

We are the only ferry company that operates every route in the Strait of Gibraltar.

Our punctuality percentage in the Algeciras - Ceuta line is 95% since we started operating it in 2008.

In 2018 we will start operating two new ferry lines, Motril - Melilla and Huelva - Canary Islands (it is no longer operated by FRS).

In 2021 we began running the Ibiza - Formentera and Alcúdia - Ciutadella lines.

Another new development in 2018 is that we have started organising Ceuta Day Trips for groups over 15 people.

With more than 10 years of experience organising trips to Morocco, FRS takes you to the very best spots in the country, including Asilah, Chaouen and Tangier.And now Ceuta in 1 day for groups of more than 15 people.

Our travel agency, FRS Travel, specialises in organising tailored trips, excursions and tours, for which purpose it only works with the best tourist service providers in Morocco. Whatever the traveller is looking for, whether it be cuisine, adventure or relaxation, FRS Travel offers you a whole range of options, including getaways and tailored tours.

One of the most popular excursions is the Tangier cultural 1-day trip, which departs from Tarifa. The trip includes, amongst other things, return FRS ferry tickets, excursions with a local guide to the kasbah and souk and lunch at a typical Moroccan restaurant.

FRS Travel's tours of between two and four days to Asilah (on the coast) and to Chaouen (in the mountains) are very popular. In terms of tours which last between three and seven days, these may be tailored, with the option of trekking, and there is a range of 3-5 star hotels to choose from.
