Free travel Initiative for Ukrainian refugees

Caledonian MacBrayne is supporting the Homes for Ukraine Scheme by implementing a new ticketing initiative to provide free travel for Ukrainian refugees when travelling with us within 48 hours of their arrival to the UK.   

This small initiative aims to make what is already a very difficult time that little bit easier for those affected.  

How the initiative will work and be managed: 

  • Customer(s) must have arrived in the UK within the last 48 hours 

  • Customer(s) must show proof of arrival at the port by showing their passport stamp and/or boarding card/flight, train or bus ticket etc (one method of proof is enough) 

  • Tickets will be issued on a turn up and go basis across all routes 

  • The free tickets are for both vehicles and/or foot passengers 

  • There is no limit to how many 1 individual can buy; however proof of arrival must be shown for all individuals (e.g. if it's a family travelling) 

  • If the UK host is travelling with the customer, they will pay the normal fare 

  • There's no limit to how many times a customer can travel, as long it's still within the first 48-hour period 

  • The initiative will run from July 2022-July 2023 (with the possibility to amend dependant on use).
