What is a Non-Real-Time Company?

It is a shipping company that is not connected in real time with our servers. If you choose to book with an offline company, our system will record your request and our operators will contact the company in order to issue your ticket. Reservation requests are processed as soon as possible if they are submitted during the opening hours of our center, which means that the entire process can take less than 30 minutes and up to a maximum of 24 hours. Our operators will always answer by e-mail. If you choose to pay by credit card or PayPal you will not be charged of any amount until your ticket has been issued.

How can I pay the tickets?

You can pay your trip by bank transfer, Pay pal or credit card (the web-site is protected by Secure site certificate). The payment conditions are at the end of data insertion.

Until when can I book?

If it is Saturday, Sunday bookings cannot be made for offline companies such as: Caremar, Balearia, SNCM, Fjordline, Corsica Maritima, Smyril, Traghetti Ponza and Virtu Ferries. For the above mentioned companies, requests cannot be made the night before for the next day's departure early in the morning. For all other companies, reservations can be made 24 / 24h with payment by credit card, PayPal and online bank transfer. This type of booking does not require operator control. All bookings for offline companies must be verified and re-checked by an operator to avoid inaccuracies in the entries made online at the time of your booking.

Age to be indicated when booking

Age to be indicated when booking. It is important to enter the right age of each passenger. Putting the exact age in the system allows it to calculate the correct fees according to the age brackets provided by each individual company. By age we mean the years already completed at the time of the outward journey. E.g. A passenger who is born on the 20.06.2010 and travels on the 15.10.2023, must indicate 13 years of age. For children under one year, indicate years 0.

Plate number of your car

What if I have a different number of people/vehicles on the outward and return journey?

On our online system it is not possible to book a different number of people or vehicles between the outward and return journey, so two separate bookings must be made.

Booking fees and ancillary costs

The commission paid to Ferriesonline.com under the heading "booking fees" refers to the fee received for the administrative costs of handling the practice. Since this is remuneration for an intermediation service resulting from a mandate relationship, it is not subject to any reimbursement in case of withdrawal, even following rectification or cancellation made by the company. Ancilliary costs (e.g. cancellation guarantee) are not refundable in case of withdrawal as they are issued and paid to the companies providing the service. It follows that the refund will be calculated only on the portion of the ticket.

Refunds for late ship arrival/departure

Refunds must be requested by registered mail always and only to the shipping company according to the passenger's rights (European regulation 1177/2010) using the appropriate form prepared by the Company (if prepared): - in situations of delayed arrival or cancellation of the journey exceeds 90 minutes: reimbursement or re-protection guarantee, adequate assistance (which includes snacks, meals, drinks or sooner hotel accommodation with financial coverage up to 80 euros per night for a maximum of 3 nights). In case of delay on arrival or cancellation of the trip: compensation between 25 and 50% of the ticket price of the delayed or canceled journey. the Minimum 25% reimbursement is granted if the ship has a delay of at least three hours in a regular scheduled service that takes between 8 and 24 hours of travel. If the delay exceeds double the indicated time by three hours, the reimbursement rises to 50% of the ticket price. the financial compensation is made within one month of the presentation of the relevant application. The financial compensation can be made through vouchers or other services if the conditions are flexible, in particular as regards the period of validity and the destination. The financial compensation is made at the request of the passenger. The financial compensation granted to the ticket price is not subject to deductions of costs related to the financial transaction such as taxes, telephone charges or stamp duties. The carrier may set a minimum threshold below which no reimbursement takes place and which cannot exceed 6.00 euros. The reimbursement provisions are without prejudice to the right of passengers to apply to the courts for reimbursements related to losses due to cancellation or delays in transport services. Specific assistance must be granted to disabled people or those with reduced mobility both on the port term and on board the ship.
