Paying for your booking
You can pay for your booking by credit card, debit card, cash, bank draft, personal cheque, postal order or Tesco vouchers. We do not however accept American Express or Diners Club.
Secure Internet Shopping: When booking online with Irish Ferries, we offer an encrypted and secure booking system. We participate in the 'Verified by VISA' and the 'Mastercard SecureCode' schemes, to offer an additional level of protection against unauthorised use of your credit or debit card. We also comply with the Payment Services Directive and use ‘3D Secure’ for online payments and ‘Chip and Pin’ transactions for in person payments at ports.
These security measures apply to all cards so you do not need to register your credit or debit card. All you need to do is ensure that you and any authorised user have valid mobile phone numbers registered with your Bank / Card Issuer because they may send a one time passcode to verify and complete your online transaction. This passcode is not accessed, shared or stored by Irish Ferries, or by our card payment service provider. If you have any queries, please contact your bank and/or card issuer in the first instance.
Cash type payments: If paying by cash please pay directly at our Reservations or Port offices. Do not send cash through the post.
Tesco vouchers: Please contact Tesco to exchange your Clubcard Vouchers for a travel token. When booking, please choose “Use Tesco Tokens” - your token code can then be entered during the booking process when prompted. Please note that the maximum value of vouchers that can be used on the Dover/Calais route is £150/€170 for a return journey or £75/€85 for a single journey.
Deposit: If you book online and opt to pay the deposit by card on our direct French service, the full balance due will automatically be debited from your card 60 days prior to your outward departure date. Tesco bookings require the deposit paid in addition to using your Tesco tokens.
If payment is not received by the stated date, your booking may be cancelled and revelvant cancellation terms and conditions will be applied.
