Will I get a refund if I cancel my booking?

Updated 20/12/2021

For all future bookings, you can rest assured that we are waiving all amendment fees for 2022 travel (up to 30th December 2022), so you can Book with Confidence.

Where passenger services are cancelled/route closed, all ticket types will be eligible for a refund.

While we understand the continued uncertainty around the situation, we can only refund those with non-refundable tickets if we cancel our services, or if we are stopped from running our passenger services (e.g a government authority says we cannot run our services) or if a country is on the current UK 'banned travel' red list.

We continue to follow government and maritime legislation and while we may not be able to refund you, your travel insurance or credit card provider may have other rights to refund you could consider.
