If you arrive for your booked sailing too late to check in on time, our staff will try to get you on the next possible sailing, but this is not guaranteed.

Vehicles arriving at port more than 2 hours after scheduled sailing time will be classed as a “no show” booking though a revision to your booking can be made, subject to availability, if you travel before 23:59 on same day. Payment for any increase in booking costs is required before sailing and amendment fees may apply. If there is no availability and you decide to travel on a subsequent day, you will need to buy a new ticket (no refunds will be considered).

If you think you are going to miss the check-in period for your sailing we recommend you contact us, if possible, to modify your booking. Provided you contact us at least one hour before the departure of your sailing we will try and change you sailing time to the next available service. There is no amendment fee if you modify your booking yourself online, but there may be an additional fare to pay if the new sailing is more expensive.
