As a result of fuel prices rising constantly, ferry companies are passing on their increased fuel costs as a variable fuel surcharge.

Ferry companies are passing their own rising costs on to us. To give you an idea of the costs here are links to the latest figures.



Please Note: From the 1st January 2015, the new EU Sulphur Emission Control Areas (SECA) takes effect for all ferry crossing on English Channel / North Sea shipping routes. This will however result in an increase in ferry costs to us, which we will have no alternative but to pass on and recover in full from our customers when using these services in transit to/from Europe. Under the new legislation, Irish Sea routes between Ireland - UK will not be included in the SECA area until January 2020.
