The vehicles size is the true maximum length and height, including any tow-bars, overhanging items and roof loads (e.g. a top box or bicycles)

It’s really important that you tell us the correct size of your vehicle as on arrival our loading staff may ask to measure your vehicle. If your booking has been made incorrectly, or you do not consent to a check, we will not be able to honour your booking and you will be asked to change your ticket and pay any difference in fare before you can travel. These additional checks may mean we are not able to offer your original sailing time.

Popular FAQ

Multilink-page @iow

We have a range of Multilink Passes available. Once you have purchased a Pass, it cannot be upgraded to a different Multilink product as the level of discount is set. E.g. A Pass of 20 may only be topped up with another Pass of 20. Although you can top up multiple times, this does not increase the level of discount.

You can top up your pass online, or by calling or visiting our Wightlink Ticket Offices.
