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)
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.
You can top up your Season tickets through the Wightlink app, online or over the phone. Season Tickets purchased by Direct Debit cannot be topped up online, unfortunately.
Using your Season Ticket
The easiest way to use your Season Ticket is using the Wightlink app. Simply show your ticket on your phone to staff when boarding.
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. Simply fill out the Season Ticket form on our Contact Us page, making sure to state that you need your Pass setup for online use in the Message section. 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.
