Season Tickets

From July 2018, we’re updating our Season Ticket offering to make things easier for you and give you more flexible options of crossing the Solent for less. We offer a fast, reliable service, with FastCat crossings of just 22 minutes.

A new 180 day Season Ticket will be available to purchase and students, apprentices, teachers and lecturers can now make use of the new Education and Training Season Ticket. You’ll also be able to buy Season Tickets online, with the exception of Direct Debit purchases.

How can I get a Season Ticket?

Season tickets can be bought online (except Direct Debit) or from all Wightlink Ticket Offices. In our efforts to reduce our impact on the environment, we will no longer be issuing plastic cards. Instead, your Season Ticket can be accessed and used through our app or you can use your paper ticket.

If you’re buying online, your Season Ticket will be valid immediately. You can pick up your paper ticket and paper Reward Pass from one of our Ticket Offices if you’d like. If you have purchased either an Education and Training Season Ticket or a Student Season Ticket online, you will need to provide proof of entitlement, usually photo ID, the first time you use it. We accept valid:

  • NUS cards
  • Student Rider cards
  • UCAS
  • NUS Extra cards (for apprentices)
  • College and University photo ID cards with an expiry date
  • Teacher ID cards

If you’re buying in one of our Ticket Offices, simply show up and a member of staff will arrange your Season Ticket for you. For Education and Training and Student Season Ticket applications, you will need to bring photo ID from the list above.

Direct Debit applicants will need to bring a completed Direct Debit application form.

Using your Season Ticket

The easiest way to use your Season Ticket is to download the Wightlink app and simply show your ticket to staff when boarding. Watch our handy guide below.

Photo ID

You may be asked for photo ID when showing your ticket. We accept photo driving licence, Passport or HM forces ID cards.

Logging into your Season Ticket account

First you will need an online account that’s connected to your Season Ticket. If you’ve not already set up for this then fill out the Multilink and Season Ticket online setup form and we’ll get you set up. You can then login online.

Topping-up your Season Ticket

You can’t top up Season tickets, you have to purchase a new one each time. If you have an account and you’ve already purchased, you can repurchase a ticket using the same details each time. You can only postdate a Season ticket at a ticket office, not when purchasing online.
