Vehicle tickets

Save on your Isle of Wight vehicle ferry crossing

Sailings now available to book until December 2022

When you book your vehicle onto a Wightlink ferry, the price you pay will depend on the day and time you’d like to travel, the available space left on your selected car ferry crossing and the size of the vehicle you want to bring along.

We don’t charge per passenger, so your price will stay the same with up to seven people in your vehicle.

You can bring a trailer or a caravan with you. It’s important to know the height and length of anything you bring along on the back of your vehicle – including bike racks, roof racks and top boxes.

Any payments made at our Customer Service Points will need to be by card as we are no longer accepting cash.

Book with confidence

When you book with us you can be confident that if your plans change, you have the flexibility to amend your booking. With our Standard tickets, you get:

  • FREE online amendments to your travel dates
  • Unlimited FREE travel date amendments
  • Full cancellation refund in advance of travel, minus a £5.00 fee

For peace of mind and full flexibility, we recommend booking with a Standard vehicle ferry ticket. If you purchase an Economy ticket, you can still amend your travel dates for free, but full cancellation charges would apply.

Getting the best price

Generally, if you book your ferry travel early, you’ll pay a cheaper price. Consider travelling outside of peak times – 10:00 to 15:59 – to save money and don’t forget to check our discounts page to see our latest deals and offers.
