Season Tickets

Unlimited foot travel

If you commute or travel regularly to and from the Isle of Wight by foot, you can save money with one of our Season Tickets.

Season Tickets offer unlimited foot travel across the Solent for a set period of time on any of our three routes. Our quickest route – Portsmouth Harbour to Ryde Pier Head – takes just 22 minutes and has excellent rail connections on both sides.

How to get your Season Ticket

Season Tickets can be bought online – unless you’re paying by Direct Debit – or from any Wightlink Ticket Office.

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. You can pick up your paper ticket and paper Reward Pass from one of our Ticket Offices if you’d like.

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:

  • NUS cards

  • Student Rider cards

  • UCAS

  • NUS Extra cards (for apprentices)

  • College and University photo ID cards with an expiry date

  • Teacher ID cards

If you’re buying in one of our Ticket Offices, simply show up and a member of staff will arrange your Season Ticket for you. For Education and Training and Student Season Ticket applications, you will need to bring photo ID from the list above.

Direct Debit applicants will need to bring a completed Direct Debit application form.

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 in a Wightlink Ticket Office, 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.

Multilink Passenger Passes
