Online bookings have come to the ferries between Comox and Powell River.
BC Ferries announced the move along with saver fares which cost $39 for a vehicle and driver on the last sailing of the day in each direction.
Saver fares are non-refundable on the day of sailing and require a fee to change or cancel. That’s $5 to change up to an hour before sailing, or to cancel it’s $5 four days or more in advance, or $20 from three days until to the day before departure.
The saver fare is used by BC Ferries to draw people to the sailings that generally have less traffic on them, and open up space during the busier times of the day.
Foot passengers can also book online without a reservation fee on the route. Foot reservations are non-refundable, but they can be moved without charge, even if the sailing is missed.
The change brings the Comox-Powell River route in line with many other major BC Ferries routes that already have online booking available.
