Purchase Ferry Tickets (Trinidad and Tobago) Online

As someone who uses the ferry service from time to time, I was pleasantly surprised to see an ad in the Express (Sunday 28 August 2016) stating that from September 1 passengers will be able to purchase tickets online. I will definitely have to give this a try. The ad states as follows

From September 01 the Port Authority of Trinidad and Tobago/Tobago Inter-island Transportation Co. Ltd will be introducing the sale of Ferry tickets to our local, regional and international customers via its online facilities at

• Credit Card payment would be processed via Scotia Bank’s Credit Card payment gateway facilities.

• All booking transactions are secured via Socket Layer (SSL) certificate utilizing robust data encryption. No credit card information is being stored at the Port Authority.

The Management of PATT/TTIT is grateful to Scotia Bank, the Tobago House of Assembly, Trinidad and Tobago Chamber of Commerce, the Tobago Hotel and Tourism Association and all other stakeholders who supported this initiative.

Great news for international visitors planning trips to Trinidad and Tobago. Also I did not know that Scotia Bank has a gateway that entities could use. And why do I have to print the ticket? Can they not scan it from my smartphone plus I do not have a printer. Yikes. Share your thoughts with us in the comments below.

    Scotia and at least Republic Bank and FCB (not sure about the others) use First Atlantic Caribbean as the actual payment gateway. Scotiabank used to have a high signup fee of about TT $30k plus they needed to have a 5-year relationship with you as a company before you could process credit card payments online with them. Don’t know if they still have those requirements, but the other banks are literally only now offering the facility.
