Q. If I book a Saver fare, can I change my sailing? What is the cut-off time for making a change?
A. You can change your sailing up to 1 hour before the scheduled departure time of your original booking for a $5 fee. If you change your Saver fare to a sailing where there are no Saver fares available, you will need to pay the difference in price, and you will no longer receive the extra length discount of 50% off per additional foot. Set up a BC Ferries account online
to easily create and change bookings. Any bookings made online (as a guest or logged in customer) can be adjusted using the edit your booking link found in your booking confirmation email.
If you’ve made a booking as a guest through the Customer Service Centre
, you will need to contact the Customer Service Centre to modify your sailing. If you have an account, you can log in to make any changes.
Q. Can I cancel a Saver fare booking?
A. Yes, you can cancel your booking up to 11:59 p.m. the day before departure for a refund of the fare, less a $20 cancellation fee. Any Saver Fare bookings that are not redeemed at the terminal and were not cancelled before the day of travel are non-refundable.
Q. What happens if I have fewer/more passengers than what was booked and paid for online?
A. If you check-in at the terminal with fewer passengers than you booked and paid for, and the booking has not been changed prior to check-in, the ticket agent will issue you a refund for the difference.
If you check-in at the terminal with more passengers than you booked and paid for, the ticket agent will charge you the additional passenger fare(s).
Please update the number of passengers online or by contacting our Customer Service Centre up to one hour before your scheduled departure time.
Q. What happens if my vehicle is different from what was booked online?
A. To streamline terminal check-in, please update the length or type of your vehicle online in advance of checking in for your sailing. You can also do this by calling the Customer Service Centre
up to one hour before your scheduled departure time.

If your vehicle is longer than what you reserved, you will need to pay the difference in price. If your reserved vehicle length differs by more than 5 feet (1.5 meters) at check-in, your booking will not be honoured.
