50% Island Resident discount for NHS appointments

For Island residents travelling to the mainland only

If you’re an Isle of Wight resident travelling to the mainland for an NHS-funded hospital appointment, you can get 50% off your ferry crossing with Wightlink.

The NHS discount is available for the patient plus one other traveller, or if the patient is a child, two parents are permitted to travel alongside. The offer does not apply to appointments with GPs, dentists, pharmacists or opticians.

You will be required to produce your appointment card, letter, or SMS referring to your appointment in order to collect tickets on the day of your travel. Customers travelling in vehicles can collect their ticket at the vehicle check in booths. Customers travelling on foot will need to speak to a member of staff to collect their ticket.

How to book

You’ll need to give us a call in advance on 0333 999 7333, quoting the Wightlink Healthcare Discount.

The 50% discount apply to Standard and Economy vehicle fares and Standard foot passenger fares for IOW residents only.
