Booking the Ancona-Split Ferry

There is no substantial difference in on-board services between the various operators. Click here for more on on-board accommodation for Jadrolinija ferries.

As with any international car ferry, I strongly recommend that you book it in advance even if you do not have a car in order to have your choice of accommodation. In order to book the car ferry, follow these easy steps:

1. Select your departure port (Ancona or Split)

2. Select your arrival port (Ancona or Split)

3. Select the month and dates of your departure; Note that there is a 20% reduction on the return portion of a round-trip ticket

4. Select your desired accommodation; Note that some accommodation may not be available on some departures.

5. Choose your vehicle make, model and, if applicable, the plate number. If you do not know the plate number (i.e. for a rental car) simply enter "rental" in the space provided; you can notify the company later when you know the number

6. Follow instructions for paying by credit card and await your email confirmation and ticket which will be emailed to you.
