Ferry to Morocco - Costs

Hello TA friends,

I will be taking the ferry from Alegicras to Tanger Med at the end of March. I found one price on the transmediterranea.es website for 21 Euros with Acciona (Wisteria) and on the UK Direct Ferries 26.50 Euros.

Do I need to be booking a ferry on line? I will be crossing on March 31 (Easter Saturday). Or do I just pick up a ticket when I arrives in Algeciras on the 30th.

If so, is the 21 Euro price the best price I'm going to get or do the prices ever come down.

Thanks for you help.

Travelling on foot it is OK just to turn up and take the next convenient sailing. Some are using fast catamaran ships whilst others take longer using a car/lorry ferry. So bear this in mind when searching becasue some people like to get over quickly. There are alternative ferries apart from ACCIONA. In the Departure hall at Algeciras you can see which one is leaving that suits you best. I have no idea whether buying a ticket in advance has any advantage.

Hi Taradog66,

Did you buy your ferry ticket on the day of departure at Algeciras? Or did you do an advance booking online?

I am planning for a trip in a couple of months. Thanks!

I purchased my ticket at the port in Algeciras the night before my ferry left. I believe the cost included the bus trip to Tarifa. Enjoy your trip.
