What is the format of a passenger ticket?

The price displayed on the ticket is the carrier's fare in force on the date of issue of the ticket. The fare is not fixed and is subject to changes; it may decrease or increase. Specific discounts and reductions are not applied retrospectively to tickets already issued.
"Native/resident" tariffs are not available for all departures or accommodation. Quotes do not confirm prices and do not guarantee places on the ship. Except where otherwise specified, the price displayed on the ticket does not include the provision of food onboard, which remains the responsibility of the passenger.

Standard elements are:

  • Passenger base rate
  • Extras (port taxes, ISPS, fees and bunker surcharge) per passenger
  • Tariff for the selected accommodation (inside or outside cabin, or suite)
  • Tariff and car supplements where applicable
  • Animal tariff where applicable

 

It is also possible to take out Travel Insurance and Passenger Assistance at a cost of €5,50 and/or a Vehicle Insurance at a cost of €6.

What is the format of a freight ticket?

The sum total of the various ticket components varies depending on the date of travel, date of booking and type of accommodation chosen. Standard elements are:

  • Sea freight
  • Bunker surcharge
  • Policy issue
  • Driver or the transportation of a vehicle without driver where applicable

 

How do I pay for a ticket?

Online: with Visa, Master Card, Visa Electron, American Express or PayPal.
At the desk: with a credit card, cash, cashier's cheque, DKV, UTA or Multicard payment cards.

Can I take out insurance cover?

I would like to purchase a ticket but I don't know yet whether I will be taking my vehicle with me.

You can purchase a passenger ticket using your preferred method and, at a later date, through GNV (by telephone or at a ticket desk) or a travel agent only, add a separate ticket for your vehicle.

How do I categorise my vehicle?

You need to check the type of registration on your vehicle's registration document.

How do I categorise/book my vehicle registered for both private and business use?

You must check whether it will be transporting passengers or freight on this particular journey.

Should I book my vehicle as freight or passenger?

In order to correctly categorise your vehicle, please refer to its registration document.

Do I have to book a driver's ticket when transporting freight?

No, if the driver prefers to travel in an individual cabin, this can be bought separately as passenger accommodation.

Can I send a car without a driver?

Of course, this must be booked as vehicle freight. For more information or a quote, please call +39 (0) 5509339 or send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Can I book cabins for the sole use of drivers?

Yes, on payment of a supplement and depending on availability onboard the ship.
