How can we help?

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.

The ticket payment service to travel on the Strait of Messina Ferry using the Telepass device is reserved for:

  • Telepass Family customers;
  • Telepass customers with Viacard;
  • Telepass customers with Viacard through associations and service companies.

The following cannot access the service: customers with rechargeable Telepass and Europass customers.
