Ensuring safe accessible travel
Wightlink offers a comprehensive scheme for persons with all forms of disability entitling them to discounted fares.
When travelling the following discounts to our public tariffs apply:
- Standard : up to 30% for vehicle and occupants
- Economy : up to 15% for vehicle and occupants
- IW Resident fares : up to 40% for vehicle and occupants
- Foot passengers : up to 25% for the disabled passenger
If you have any special requirements e.g. you experience severe discomfort when exiting your vehicle or need assistance getting to the passenger lounge, please contact us at least 48 hours before you plan to travel. By asking you to book by phone, we can assess your needs and ensure that we are able to meet them on your chosen sailing. If we don’t think we can, we will explain why and ask you to travel on an alternative sailing. If you do not book in advance we may not be able to offer you the assistance that you might otherwise expect, although we will make every effort to help you. Even if you don’t book ahead in this way, we will still do our best to allow you to travel as soon as possible after you arrive at the terminal. However, our staff will need to assess your needs whilst also dealing with other passengers, and this may result in your departure being delayed.
If you do not require this kind of assistance you can book under the Blue Badge Scheme as below.
To book a discounted rate please have your "blue badge" to hand as we'll need the number to complete the booking. You'll also need it with you when you travel as it will be checked against your ticket when you check-in.
Please note the following:
The blue badge holder must be travelling in the vehicle
The blue badge must be shown on request of a Wightlink Ticket Inspector, failure to produce a valid blue badge will result in a surcharge to the full public tariff being charged
The blue badge must be valid for both outward and return journeys on the booking
All bookings must be paid for at the time of booking, Tesco Clubcard Boost token codes are not accepted
Discount does not apply to season tickets, books of tickets, promotional, freight, coach or group travel
Discounts can only be applied at time of booking and can not be applied retrospectively
If you do not have a blue badge
Disabled persons who do not posess a blue badge may apply for a "Wightlink Disabled Discount Scheme" card allowing discounts on foot passenger travel only.
Applications should be made in writing to: Wightlink Marketing Department, Gunwharf Road, Portsmouth, PO1 2LA including proof of disability. Please allow at least 5 working days for the application to be processed and include a passport sized photograph.
