Back to Tickets and Reservations

I have a vehicle, do I need to make a reservation?

Yes, we would recommend booking as far in advance as possible on all bookable routes. However, you can travel without reservations if there is space available. Please note that advanced payment is required for all bookings.

Reservations for summer sailings usually open late December/early January. Winter reservations usually open around late August/early September.

If you have booked a return journey and do not show up for the outward sailing, the return sailing will be cancelled.

Find out the routes you can make a reservation for in our fares section.
