  • Conditions of the offer

The fare reduction applies to passengers born or residing in a Municipality of the Region of Sicily, to their dependent family members (spouse or cohabitant and/or children) and to other passengers included in the ticket (even if not dependent family members or non-family members) traveling to / from Sicily, on the lines indicated below. The fare reduction applies on the Livorno> Palermo, Naples> Palermo, Salerno> Palermo and Cagliari> Palermo lines and vice versa.

⃰ Under Directive (EU) 2023/959, shipping has been included in the European Union’s greenhouse gas emission allowance trading system (“EU ETS”). The obligations placed on shipping companies, particularly the obligation to purchase allowances, lead to an increase in the cost of maritime transport. Therefore, as of January 1st, 2024, an item called ‘EU ETS costs’ will be incorporated into the ticket price for each passenger and each vehicle, which varies in amount depending on the route and is neither discountable nor refundable. At present, public service routes (from Naples and Palermo to Cagliari and vice versa; from Civitavecchia to Arbatax and Cagliari and vice versa) and Civitavecchia-Olbia and vice versa are excluded from the application of the EU ETS.

Special offers may be subject to change.
