Priority boarding

In a hurry? Got places to be? Simply like beating the queues? Be one of the first vehicles on and off the ferry with Wightlink Priority Boarding.

It’s available for direct booking customers on most car ferries on our Portsmouth to Fishbourne route for just £10 per crossing. Grab your coffee, guarantee yourself one of the best seats on board and get back out on the open road before you know it.

What you’ll get with Priority Boarding:

  • You’ll arrive and check in at the same time as everyone else but get a designated Priority Boarding lane, reducing your queuing time before boarding.
  • You’ll be among the first vehicles to board the ferry and then to disembark on the other side.

Priority boarding can be booked for cars up to 5 metres in length and 2.24 metres in height and on sailings between 07:00 and 19:00. You’ll need to check in on time (at least 30 minutes before your scheduled sailing) to ensure your priority spot on board.

Unfortunately, Priority Boarding is not available on cars with trailers of any kind.
