Can children travel alone?
Children must be 12 or over to travel unaccompanied on our ferries and FastCats. If your child is under 12 then a responsible adult must be with them at all times.
We understand that sometimes you may need to drop younger children off or pick them up on the Island or mainland, so we offer an Escorted Child discount card.
Call us on 0333 999 7333 to get a discount card and complete the application form. You’ll need to provide proof of the birth certificate of the child you travel with and provide a passport-sized photo for the accompanying adult.
Please read the rules on the form carefully to make sure it’s the right ticket for the journeys you make. Remember, you will need to be travelling with the child (either for your outward or return journey) and the discount can only be used to make a round trip on the next sailing.
