How to get your Season Ticket

Season Tickets can be bought online – unless you’re paying by Direct Debit.

To help reduce our impact on the environment, we don’t issue plastic cards. Instead, your Season Ticket can be accessed and used through our app or you can use the paper ticket that will be issued to you.

If you’re buying online, your Season Ticket will be valid immediately. We’ll send your paper ticket and paper Reward Pass in the post.

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:

  • Student Rider cards

  • ISIC (International Student Identity Card)

  • TOTUM card


  • College and University photo ID cards with an expiry date

  • Teacher ID cards

For Education and Training and Student Season Ticket applications, you will need to be able to provide photo ID from the list above.

Direct Debit applicants will need to email a completed Direct Debit application form to [email protected] before calling our Contact Centre, on 0333 999 7333, to set up the Season Ticket.

If you are applying to pay by Direct Debit for an Education and Training Season Ticket, you will need to attach your proof of your entitlement when emailing [email protected]. Valid ID options are listed above.

Using your Season Ticket to book online

If you purchased your Season Ticket online, you’re already set up and ready to go, but if you bought yours over the phone, you might have to get in touch with us for it to work with online bookings.

We’ll arrange everything for you and you can then login online.

When you’re ready you can make bookings using the Wightlink app by going to ‘New Booking’ and selecting ‘Click to book with a Ticket Pass’ before choosing your sailing time.

If you’d rather book on our website, select your sailing time and then tick ‘Book with a pass’. You’ll need to log in to your account when prompted and at the payment stage, choose the Season Ticket you’d like to pay with.
