Vehicle Fares to the Isle of Wight


New look Falcon

Red Funnel is well known for offering highly competitive Saver and Flexible car ferry fares to the Isle of Wight. We don't publish a tariff as prices are determined by the amount of space available on the ship at the time of booking - our online system shows the price alongside every departure so it's easy to choose sailings that meet your budget.

Our car fares include up to 6 people (total must be declared at the time of booking) and our Premium add-on fares offer priority loading/disembarkation and 20% off food & drinks.
