Travelling without a reservation
It is strongly recommended to make a reservation. You can change your reservation online free of charge up to 3 hours before your scheduled departure, as many times as you want. Find out how and what is considered a change by reviewing our policies.
If you have been unable to obtain a reservation on the desired date, you can always try to board the ship from the vehicle standby line.
Here’s how it works:
- Even if the ship is fully booked, a few spaces may become available once you are on the dock. For example, if people change their reservation at the last minute or if vehicles take less space than estimated, places may become available for vehicles without a reservation.
- On average, a few vehicles without a reservation manage to board the ship on each crossing.
- If you have a later reservation but manage to board an earlier crossing than your scheduled date, your paiement will be automatically applied to this earlier crossing.
- If you do not manage to board the ship, it is important that your vehicle remain in the standby line to maintain your boarding priority for the next crossing
