You can book a trip online until check-in for the desired departure is opened. After the check-in has opened the booking must be done via Call Center or at the harbour. Exceptions are departures from Travemünde to Helsinki, where the online booking must be made at 19:00 o'clock at the latest. 

Which browser should I use when booking a ferry trip online? 

Finnlines’ online booking system is compatible with most common browsers. We recommend to use the newest browser versions. Internet Explorer is an outdated browser and it is not supported by the online booking system. 

Methods of payment

Online booking can be paid with Visa, Visa Electron, MasterCard or Maestro. Direct banking is possible in Finland via Aktia, Danske Bank, Handelsbanken, Nordea, Oma Säästöpankki, OP, POP Pankki, S-Pankki, Säästöpankki and Ålandsbanken. Bookings in euro can be paid via PayPal. 

Online payments

When you pay your trip online, please, wait until the browser returns from your online bank to our booking system. Only this way your payment will be saved in our online booking system and you get a booking confirmation to your e-mail.
If you close your online bank’s payment window inadvertently before your browser returns to our online booking system, your booking will be cancelled even though you would have successfully paid for your trip. In this case, please, contact our Call Center
