When do I pay for travel?

We will be stopping taking cash on our ferries and at ports in response to concerns around the COVID-19 pandemic from Saturday 28 March 2020. Please make it contactless to help us support the welfare of our staff and customers.

The World Health Organisation has advised against cash handling. Travellers, who are making journeys on the ferries in line with Government guidelines, can either pay by card, or Apple Pay or Google Pay where accepted.

Tickets must be paid for at the time of booking. For online bookings and telephone payment, methods are credit cards and debit cards. 

We no longer accept American Express. You can still pay with a Visa or Mastercard debit or credit card. 

Please note that cheques are no longer accepted
