  • To partially cover increased fuel costs, we have had to introduce a fuel surcharge of 1,50 € per crossing on tickets for cars and camping vehicles.

    As the fuel surcharge is added per crossing, return tickets will be charged twice - once for the outward journey and once for the return journey.

    The fuel surcharge is added to tickets departing from 2 January 2023.
