Season tickets can be bought online (except Direct Debit) or from all Wightlink Ticket Offices. In our efforts to reduce our impact on the environment, we will no longer be issuing plastic cards. Instead, your Season Ticket can be accessed and used through our app or you can use your paper ticket.
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:
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.
The easiest way to use your Season Ticket is to download the Wightlink app and simply show your ticket to staff when boarding. Watch our handy guide below.
Once you’ve set up your Season Ticket for online use you can easily make bookings and manage your account.
If you purchased your Season ticket on our website, it’s already set up. If you purchased at one of our ticket offices or you’re unsure if you can manage your Season Ticket online, simply fill in this form and we’ll do the work for you.
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 ‘I have a Multilink Pass or Business 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 .
You may be asked for photo ID when showing your ticket. We accept photo driving licence, Passport or HM forces ID cards.
First you will need an online account that’s connected to your Season Ticket. If you’ve not already set up for this then fill out the Multilink and Season Ticket online setup form and we’ll get you set up. You can then login online.
You can’t top up Season tickets, you have to purchase a new one each time. If you have an account and you’ve already purchased, you can repurchase a ticket using the same details each time. You can only postdate a Season ticket at a ticket office, not when purchasing online.
