Frequently Asked Questions

You can bring your vehicle or motorcycle to all ferries listed on FerryScan. Please note that vehicle space is limited, and often sells out well before passenger seats. We have a limited selection of vehicle types on FerryScan, however you can always contact us to get any vehicle booked.

The price you pay on FerryScan is the price you will pay booking directly with any operator. If you notice a price higher on FerryScan compared to the operator, we will match the operator's price. FerryScan earns a small commission of each sale from the ferry operator, however this commission is not added into our prices.

We have limited support for online bookings with pets at the moment. Please contact us for bookings with pets, we would be happy to help you.

Almost all ferries have cabins onboard available for purchase. Some routes (often overnight) require a cabin, which is included in your ticket. You can always upgrade your cabin for extra money. The cheapest cabins are usually in the bottom of the ship near the engines. We suggest trying to avoid these at all costs, especially during the winter when there are rough seas.

On Baltic Sea ferries, there are generally a lot of activities to choose from. There are many restaurants, bars, cafes and shopping. On larger ships you can also find night clubs, spas and theaters.
