Transportation is provided by Tirrenia in compliance with terms and conditions imposed by the "Regulations for the transport of passengers and  accompanying baggage" and the "Regulations for the transport of accompanying motor vehicles and their trailers, motor scooters and motorcycles", which can also be consulted at the Company tickets Offices  and on Board, as well as by  the Italian Navigation Code or, where there are no dispositions of the Code and you can’t apply them by analogy, by the articles of the Italian Civil Code.

Purchasing a ticket the passenger automatically accepts all terms and conditions to all the intents and purposes.

Any information, including timetables (always expressed in local time) and the fares as reported in this website can be changed any time and without any advance notice. Tirrenia is not liable for sudden modifications due to unforeseen circumstances or technical reasons.

Legislation and international security

In compliance with the security legislation, the names and the license plates indicated in the ticket must correspond to passengers and their accompanying vehicles. Otherwise, the Controls Authorities may deny the access both to port facilities and to the boarding.

Fares, fees and booking

The ticket purchase implies the payment of the transit price added to the presale fee as well as the one due for the reservation of the place or the garage area assigned. All fares  are quoted in Euros and are inclusive of  VAT and rights (when due); however, they don’t  include meals, drinks, taxes and/or port charges, the fuel surcharge, security taxes and the charge for the online ticket issue. No reduction or allowance may be granted on these fees which, even though included in the fares reported in the website, won’t be refunded in case of cancellation of the booking and in case of a change request on the day of the  departure.

It’s possible to reserve passenger places and garage spaces by paying a pre-sale fee without purchasing the whole ticket, except during the period 15/5 - 15/9, when you can only buy tickets for the departures that fall within the period from 15/6 to 15/9. The booking cost is € 6,00 per passenger and € 7,56 per accompanying vehicle.

The booked accommodations will be reserved until the deadline indicated in the booking slip; after that term, assigned accommodations not yet wholly paid and confirmed, will be automatically cancelled and no refund will be due. In case of booking confirmation, however, when the booking slip is converted to a final ticket, the presale fees and charges for the assignment of a seats and garage areas won’t be required, as they have already been paid as reservation upon presale.
