Frequently asked questions
Vehicle passes are for Island residents or those who own a property on the Island. We strongly recommend Multilink vehicle bookings are made in advance as we reserve only a certain amount of space per sailing for Multilink Vehicle bookings. It’s especially important around school holidays and festivals. If you find you regularly travel at very short notice the Multilink pass may not be suitable.
The foot passes can be purchased by any of our customers. The passes are purchased in bulk and offer a significant saving on our regular ticket prices. The more tickets you buy, the greater the saving.
For the full details on how to apply for a Multilink Vehicle pass and what you may need read our Vehicle Passes Product Guide.
It’s really straight forward.
For our vehicle pass all you need to do is bring in proof of residency at the time of purchase to one of our Ticket Offices. We can accept a driving licence, recent utility bill, phone bill, council tax bill or bank statement. Once you have shown proof of residency you will need to complete a short form, pay the fee and that’s it, we’ll print your pass for you there and then. We may ask you for photo ID when you travel with us so remember to have some photo ID with you.
It’s always a good idea to carry some form of photo ID when travelling using a Multilink Pass. We want to make sure our customers are protected and regularly check that the pass holder is the person travelling.
If photo ID cannot be produced when asked, a full Standard ticket cost will be charged and we will not offer any retrospective refunds. You can visit our Ticket Office with a passport sized photo and we can provide you with a Wightlink Photo ID Card. You can keep this with your pass and not have to worry again!
We will also accept a driving licence, HM Forces ID Card or a passport as proof of ID.
Yes, you can. The length and height of the trailer will determine the additional price to be paid at the time of booking.
Our Multilink Foot Pass is available to Island and mainland residents. You need only to visit one of our Ticket Offices with photo ID and a passport sized photo. You can then pay the fee and our team will issue you with a pass and a Wightlink Photo ID Card. By giving you a Wightlink Photo ID Card with your pass it’s easy to show if we ask you for ID when travelling and there is no need to carry extra identification.
The passes are purchased in bulk and offer a significant saving on our regular ticket prices. The more tickets you buy, the greater the saving.
