How can we help you?

In regards to the payment service for Strait of Messina ferry tickets - exclusively for ships owned by Caronte & Tourist - Telepass employs a highly specialized technology that can correctly classify the vehicle entering the dedicated Telepass track, apply the rate set by the ferry operator, and even calculate any applicable discount to outward and return journeys.

Along with the transit fare, Caronte & Tourist charges for the Ecopass fare included in the Ordinance of the Municipality of Messina of 22/04/2011, where applicable. By paying with the Telepass device, the Ecopass fare is based on the residential address of the Telepass contract holder.

If you are a Telepass Family or Business customer, the Ferry service is already active, at no additional cost.

You can disable the service at any time from your Reserved Area on the site in the "Services" section.

Customers affiliated with associations and service companies, however, need to request activation through their partners.

You can see the ferry ticket amount displayed on the column in the Telepass track and on the ticket that you collect from the same column.

Additionally, details of individual crossings completed with Telepass are always available on the Telepass App and in the Reserved Area of the site.
