The difference in fare between the booking date and the date of change will not be paid back to you by Stena Line. Upgrades from Economy to Flexi or other ticket types are not permitted but you may upgrade from Flexi to Premium.

Amendment fees can be charged in three different ways.

 

  1. Amendment fee Economy. This is the fee Stena Line charges for changing the route, travel date and/or sailing time of your booking. This fee is €35 per single journey changed. If you change the vehicle and the sailing date at the same time, you will be charged one amendment fee. If you change these 2 items at different times, you will be charged 2 amendment fees.
  2. Service fee for amendment. This is the fee Stena Line charges when you change your booking via phone or e-mail. This fee is €7,50 per call or visit. If you make multiple changes at the same time you will only be charged 1 service fee. If you change your booking online, yourself, you will not have to pay this fee.
  3. The difference in fare between the price when you made your booking and the price at the moment you make your amendment.

 

Example:

 

When you made your booking it is possible that you paid, for example, €100 for a ticket for a single journey for a car plus driver. If you were to change your booking to, say, a month later, it would be possible that a ticket for a car plus driver at that moment would cost €140 for that date. By saying the lowest available fare, we mean the fare that is still available at the time the booking is amended. With the Economy ticket you pay the €35 amendment fee and the €40 price difference that has occurred in the meantime. So, in total €75. With the Flexi ticket you only pay the €40 price difference that has occurred in the meantime. With the Flexi ticket you don't have to pay the amendment fee.

 

Also, you will save €7,50 service fee when you change your booking online, yourself.
