Fares and tickets
You can choose between single use tickets and travelcards valid for 5 or 30 days. Here is all the information you need about our tickets for Waxholmsbolaget's achipelago boat network.
Single use tickets
You purchase your ticket onboard the boat. Hang on to your ticket throughout the journey and hand it over to the crew when you disembark.
The fare for your journey depends on how far you travel. Single use one way tickets cost from 45 up to 130 SEK, or 30-80 SEK for children up to 19 and elderly over 65 years of age. Children up to 6 years old travel for free. Call +46 8 600 10 00 for price info. Return tickets are available. Please note that your ticket is only valid on the Waxholmsbolaget boats and not on other carriers' boats, e.g. Cinderella and Askungen.
New prices and ticket categories will be available from January 9, 2017.

There are two types of travelcards for unlimited travelling during a specific time period, one valid for 5 days and one valid for 30 days.
The 30 day travelcard costs 750 SEK or 450 SEK with reduced fee, plus 20 SEK for the ticket holding smart card, the Access Card (reusable). You must start using your ticket within 60 days of purchase.
The 5 day travelcard (also called the Island Hopping pass) costs 420 SEK (no discout available), plus 20 SEK for the ticket holding smart card, the Access Card (reusable).
You need to touch in at the ticket machine once you have boarded the boat, in order to print a receipt, which you hand over to the crew when you disembark. Use the selfservice machines, or ask the crew.
Access Cards with credit ("reskassa")
Get an Access Card and load it with credit ("reskassa") to buy tickets onboard the boats. There is a discount system effective after you have purchased tickets for 750 SEK, as you then get to travel for free to a value of 250 SEK. You top up your credit onboard the boats, at the customer service centers at Strömkajen, Stavsnäs and Vaxholm, or at SL Center and SL ticket machines located at Metro and rail stations.
Waxholmsbolaget has the same ticket holding smart card, the Access Card, as the public transport network on land in Stockholm County, SL. You can use your credit for both land and water journeys, as the credit system is the same, however the tickets are not. Fares and validity differ between Waxholmsbolaget and SL, and tickets are not transferable.
