Online foot passenger bookings and Saver fare added to Comox – Powell River route


VICTORIA – BC Ferries customers travelling on the Comox - Powell River route have a pair of new options to enhance the travel experience. Daily $39 Saver fares are now available, and foot passengers can now make free online reservations.

The Saver fare is the most affordable fare choice and is available for the last sailings of the day leaving Comox and Powell River for customers travelling in standard under height vehicles. Availability is limited and these fares are expected to sell out. Saver fare booking change and cancellation policies are as follows:
  • $5 to change up to one hour before sailing
  • $5 to cancel four days or more in advance of sailing
  • $20 to cancel three days or less up to 11:59 PM the day before departure
  • No refunds on day of departure.
Customers travelling as foot passengers between Comox and Powell River can now book and prepay for travel in advance online. Bookings will be redeemed through the ticket booth and there is no additional cost to book a prepaid foot passenger fare. Adding foot passenger reservations to the Comox – Powell River route aligns with the service being provided on all other reservable routes and provides customer convenience and travel certainty.

Foot passenger bookings are non-refundable, but you can change your booking up to two hours in advance at no cost. If a customer misses their sailing, they may use the fare towards another sailing that day. Initially, BC Ferries will limit the number of foot passenger bookings available. If the website shows no foot passenger bookings available, it does not mean there is no space available. Customers are still able to arrive at the terminal and purchase a foot passenger fare without booking in advance.
