(Updated January 2024)

- Save Money -

Try to avoid weekend departures (Fri-Sat-Sun) and travel at unusual times (such as early morning or late at night). Buy a return ticket. Special offers, discounts and lower tariffs are normally given on Mon/Tue/Wed/Thur, you can save up to 20% during the summer period. Do not wait until the last minute as ferries do not adopt the formula last minute and you may risk paying more because availability is minimum. Always ask if the following special tariffs are available “spot”, “jackpot”, “best price” etc. usually accessible at least 8 days prior to departure, but limited. Attention, always carefully read the terms and conditions of each company because reduced tariff tickets cannot be changed or reimbursed.

- Save Time -

Many firms and travel agents sell ferries tickets online, save time and have the ticket delivered to your door with a small contribution for courier service. Some companies send an “E-mail ticket” or “Fax ticket”, which are valid documents and are replaced with a ticket at the port of embarkation. Only trust the online operators that use protected online payments through conventional banks. Be aware of those online operators that request information regarding your credit card on the estimate booking form. Do not trust those online companies that do not state who they are, there telephone number, address and name of the company.
