Ferry Operator BAF Fuel Surcharge

ferry operator fuel surcharges fuel pumpFreight ferries burn tonnes of fuel on each crossing. As a result some of the ferry operators have a fuel surcharge (BAF) which is an additional charge per booking to contribute to the exceptional cost of the fuel.

The amount of fuel surcharge fluctuates significantly depending on the freight ferry operator. Longer ferry crossings burn more fuel which tend to result in a higher level of fuel surcharge. Some ferry operators charge a percentage of the fare, others charge a per unit charge which may vary depending on your size of vehicle. Some routes also have a MARPOL or sulphur charge where a certain type of fuel only is allowed to be used. We build in any such applicable additional charges into the fuel surcharge for your convenience.

Most ferry operators currently amend their fuel surcharge levels on a monthly basis. All bookings will be charged the fuel surcharge applicable at the time of travel. If you are booking for travel within the current month prices shown on our website include any applicable fuel surcharges, however, for your convenience the most recent fuel surcharges are shown below.
