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.

Travellers who are making essential journeys on the ferries in line with strict Scottish Government guidelines, can either pay by card, or Apple Pay or Google Pay where accepted. In exceptional circumstances, we would ask you to make a member of staff aware if you have no other means of payment.
