Changes to payments on Ferries

(Updated 29/12/2020) 

In response to the increased number of Covid-19 cases in Shetland, service changes have been made to inter-island Ferry Services. 

On inter-island ferries, cash payments will be suspended with immediate effect.  Where contactless payment is available, this will remain in place.

Scottish Government guidance for Level Three states that public transport should be used for essential travel only.

Account Cards will remain as an alternative method of payment for regular travellers.

Passengers are reminded that face coverings must be worn in enclosed spaces on ferries, including in passenger lounges and when interacting with ferry crew. Passengers are also encouraged to stay in their vehicles wherever possible.

Multi-tickets are currently not accepted as payment on our ferries but can be used to pay account card invoices.
