I don't have any means to pay by any other payment than cash. Can I still travel?


We have stopped accepting cash on our ferries and at ports in response to concerns around the COVID-19 pandemic and following advice from the World Health Organisation against cash handling.

Where you need to pay at the Port or onboard the ferry, please do so using a contactless method. We accept MasterCard, Visa, Apple, Google and Samsung pay. In exceptional circumstances, we would ask you to make a member of staff aware if you have no other means of payment.
