What is the fuel surcharge?

As part of Marine Atlantic's fuel hedging strategy, we try to balance Canadian taxpayers’ contributions to the service, the stakeholder's share of the cost, and the Corporation's effort to contain operational expenses. The fuel surcharge allows us to recoup some of the fuelling cost of our vessels, which continue to rise in the oil market. We strive to be as energy efficient as possible during our operations, and ask for your continued support and cooperation as we maintain a high quality of service. Marine Atlantic's tariff and fuel surcharge are subject to change without notice.
