TravelTen Card sydney fast ferries fleet

Sydney Fast Ferries offers a TravelTen TravelCard that enables passengers to store tickets electronically in multiples of ten journeys. These journeys don’t expire, which means they can be used as little or as often as you need.

PLUS! Our TravelTen cards also entitle you to onboard discounts and exclusive offers with our TopUp rewards program. Rewarding you for your loyalty!

We have also developed a system to help you reclaim any journeys on a lost, stolen or damaged TravelTen card. Simply record the serial number on the back of the card when you purchase it. If your card is lost, damaged or stolen all you need to do to claim back your journeys and get a replacement is to contact us and quote your card’s serial number. Once we receive this email, we are able to cancel the lost, stolen or damaged card and provide you with a replacement with any remaining journeys.

Passengers can purchase a TravelTen card at our Manly and Circular Quay ticket booths for a one-off activation fee of $5.
