How to book Elba Ferry

To book ferries to the Island of Elba, go to the booking form by following this link and you’ll see that the process for comparing timetables and rates is very simple.

Simply choose the date of departure and the route (Piombino-Portoferraio to Elba and Portoferraio-Piombino from Elba or other available routes) and click on “search”.

Our system is directly connected to the booking systems of the shipping companies, so the search is done in real time, so the results show the actual availability of car and passenger spaces at the various times.

At this point, you will be shown a screen with the companies’ timetables and a practical key indicating the availability of spaces for cars, motorbikes, camper vans, and passengers. The cheapest rate (taking advantage of any special offers) for a car up to four metres long with one passenger will be shown in the right-hand column. This enables you to compare all the routes and see which ones have the cheapest price.

Once you have chosen the routes by clicking on the individual route for both the outward and return journeys, you will be taken to a form to enter the number of passengers and vehicle type. If you are booking for a car, simply choose the type of car to be transported from the list. You will need to do the same thing for the return journey, but this can be done easily with a convenient copy button.

Continuing to the next screen, enter the personal details of the passengers and the car’s number plate, as well as the details of the ticket holder. Italian customers also have the option to purchase cancellation insurance, which guarantees that the cancellation fees will be refunded if the booking is cancelled, thus protecting your purchase.

At this point, all you need to do is confirm how the tickets should be sent and proceed to confirmation. Once you have clicked “Confirm”, you will be redirected to the server of the Visa and MasterCard credit card payment operator via a secure https connection, which guarantees your credit card purchase is secure.

Your booking has now been completed and your Elba ferry ticket will be sent via the means you chose. If you chose delivery by email, then, during office hours, your email will arrive within a few minutes.
