I have a vehicle, do I need to make a reservation?

Yes, we would recommend booking as far in advance as possible on all bookable routes. However, you can travel without reservations if there is space available. Please note if you have a booking for your vehicle and there is any disruption to your route, we will contact you, if you have provided a mobile number. If you have not made a booking and plan to travel, we recommend you sign up for our sms service status messages or regularly check the service status

Reservations for summer sailings usually open late December/early January. Winter reservations usually open around late August/early September.

If you have booked a return journey and do not show up for the outward sailing, the return sailing will be cancelled.
