Before crossing

Make your ferry experience easier by planning ahead.


Now you can check in from home on your computer or mobile. Three hours before departure, an email and/or sms is sent to the person who booked the trip. Follow the instructions - you will receive your boarding card/s by email. Those who do not travel by car need this at the terminal for boarding. You can choose to either have everything saved on your mobile phone, or print your boarding card before the trip. If you are more than one person on your booking, you will receive one email per checked-in person to ease your distribution to your co passerngers.

If you do not check-in online, please use our check-in kiosks at the terminal. Enter your booking number on the screen and then follow a few easy steps to get your boarding card/s. Show your boarding card before boarding (see info below).


The gate opens about 1.5 hours before departure. Please show up in good time to avoid a queue. The gate closes at 20 minutes before departure.

When checked in, you can easily scan your boarding card in our automatic passenger gates to get to the ferry.

Show your travel documents or give us your booking number, to receive your boarding card. You may need to show your boarding card during the trip. 

When travelling by car, all passengers in the car need to show their boarding cards at the gate.
