Passeport Escales

MDL has joined forces with French operator Sagemor to offer unparalleled cruising opportunities for our Freedom Berthing members. This completely unique package sees our customers join “Passeport Escales” to gain access to free visitor nights at over 130 European marinas – all within their Freedom Berthing fee.

This will allow our Freedom Berthing members the opportunity to visit a total of 150 marinas in the UK, France, Spain, Italy and Portugal, opening up the largest cruising network offered by any European marina operator and reaffirming our clear market leader position.

All our Freedom Berthing members will be able to take advantage of the scheme which is an easy-to-use, fully automated online system. It works as a reciprocal programme where berth holders check out of their marinas and choose another marina to stay at from the network. The only condition of the scheme is boaters must check out on leaving.

  • Those customers visiting France, Spain or Portugal and using Passeport Escales for the first time will need to notify their home marina to activate their account.
  • All Freedom Berthing cards will need reactivating if you intend to use them for the 2019/20 season. You DO NOT need to order a new card or reference number as both will continue from the previous year.


Freedom Berthing members are entitled to up to 5 free visitor nights at each of the participating marinas. Only two consecutive free nights can be claimed, although you can stay longer at the normal overnight visitor rate. Members may return to the same marina following a night away to continue their free entitlement.
