Discounts and rebates

What does the residency discount entail?

It is a rebate on the regular maritime transportation service fares granted by the Spanish State and applicable to citizens who can provide proof of residency on the Balearic Islands (for inter-island crossings and routes between the Balearics and the mainland) in Ceuta (on Ceuta-Algeciras crossings) and in Melilla (on Melilla-Motril and Melilla-Almería crossings).

How much is the residency discount, and which fares does it apply to?

•    Mainland Spain - Balearic Islands: 50% for Balearic Island residents.
•    Mallorca - Menorca and Mallorca - Ibiza: 75% for Balearic Island residents.
•    Ibiza-Formentera: 75% for Majorca, Minorca and Ibiza residents, and 89% for Formentera residents.
•    Mainland - Ceuta: 50% for Ceuta residents.

•    Mainland - Melilla: 50% for Melilla residents.

These discounts are applied to the fee, except for the difference between higher category seats or berths occupied by a single person (Law 2/2012 of 29 June 2012 of subsidies for maritime transport). Discounts apply to passengers, but not to vehicles.

If I am an EU resident, what documentation do I need to show to obtain the residency rebate?

Baleària’s booking system is fully integrated into the Ministerio de Fomento’s telematic residency certification system, SARA, which allows your residency status to be checked automatically. The check will determine whether or nor you qualify for the resident discount applicable to residents of the Balearic Islands, Ceuta and Melilla. If the check confirms your status as a resident, you can check in online, only needing to produce your original, valid identity document on embarcation: DNI for Spanish citizens over 14 years of age, national identity document or passport for overseas citizens. 


If the check is unable to confirm your resident status, you must acquire your boarding pass at the ticket office, in accordance with Royal Decree 1/2014, producing an original and valid certificate of residency for travel purposes (Certificado de Residencia). The certificate must follow the model given in Annex I of Royal Decree 1316/2001, amended by Royal Decree 1340/2007*.


You will also be required to produce your original, valid identity document: DNI (National Identity Document) for Spanish citizens over 14 years of age, national identity document or passport for overseas citizens.


Children under the age of 14 who do not have a DNI (National Identity Document) are always required to produce the certificate.
Baleària recommends you obtain and carry your residency certificate with you if you have not previously checked your residency status using the telematic system, if you have recently changed your place of residence, or if the telematic system has been unable to confirm your residency on previous occasions.

* You are reminded that you must present one document per ticket. In accordance with guidelines issued by the Dirección General de la Marina Mercante del Ministerio de Fomento (Directorate-General for Merchant Shipping of the Ministry for Development), shipping companies “must store and keep safe copies of supporting documents supplied as proof of residency”. We therefore request your permission to photocopy or scan the original of your document (you can help us to process your application more quickly by supplying us with a copy of the document).

I have a large family card. What discount am I entitled to?

If you are classified as a large family in the general category, you are entitled to a 20% rebate on the standard accommodation fare, while special category large families enjoy a 50% discount. Remember that this rebate applies to the Standard accommodation fare, and that if you are travelling in a Superior class lounge seat or a cabin occupied by just one person, you will need to pay the difference in price, as established in Maritime Transportation Subsidies Act 2/2012, of 29 June 2012.

You need to show two documents. First of all, the Large Family Entitlement (issued by a Spanish public authority) or the individual ID card for each passenger; in both cases this must be the original, valid documentation. You are also required to present photocopies of the pages of the Large Family Entitlement containing the following details (which must be legible): entitlement category, passenger name, and validity and expiry.

Meanwhile, like all passengers you must provide proof of identity by means of your Spanish National Identity Card, passport, your ID card from your country of origin or a driving licence. The document must be a valid original (if it has expired, it must be accompanied by a photocopy of a valid renewal receipt).

I am a Club Baleària Ceuta member. What discounts can I obtain? What documentation do I need to show?

When you travel with Baleària you will build up points every time you travel, which can be exchanged for gifts, along with entitlement to discounts and gifts at partner establishments.

For ticket bookings you simply need to show your national identity card, although if you wish to obtain discounts at partner establishments, you will need to show your Club membership card.

I have a Youth Card (Carné Joven). What discounts am I entitled to?

This discount cannot be accumulated with any other prior offers or the large-family discount. Please remember that in order to receive the discount, you must request it upon booking; and you must get your boarding card at the ticket window (online check-in is not possible) where you must show your Youth Card.

On the other hand, all passengers must prove their identity with a valid national identity document, passport, identity card from their country of origin or driver's licence. The document must be an original and valid (if expired, you must attach a photocopy of valid proof of renewal).

On the other hand, all passengers must prove their identity with a valid national identity document, passport, identity card from their country of origin or driver's licence. The document must be an original and valid (if expired, you must attach a photocopy of valid proof of renewal).

What discount applies to Eurail/Interail passes?

You are entitled to a 20% discount on the official passenger fare. This discount cannot be combined with advance booking discounts or offers. Remember that to obtain the discount you will need to indicate this when you make your booking, and you will need to have your boarding card issued at the ticket office (online check-in is not possible), where you will need to show your Eurail/Interail pass. Meanwhile, all passengers must provide proof of identity by means of your Spanish National Identity Card, passport, your ID card from your country of origin or a driving licence. The document must be a valid original (if it has expired, it must be accompanied by a photocopy of a valid renewal receipt).

How do I obtain my discounts under the La Caixa schemes?

If you are a member of any of these La Caixa programs, you may obtain a 20% discount: LKXA program for young people, Family, ClubAhora or Imaginbank. The discount, which is applicable only for passenger fares and excludes emission fees, is valid for any of our lines (except Algeciras-Ceuta, Algeciras-Tánger Med, Melilla-Málaga, Melilla-Almería and Valencia-Mostaganem), for all accommodations.  This discount may not be combined with other discounts or promotions.   In the case of the Family program, the discount is also valid for the children of program members upon presenting ID or family register book. 

Likewise, members of the program and their children may benefit from a 50% discount on the total reservation price by using coupons that are valid for lines between the Peninsula and the Balearic Islands, when presented at the boarding office. These coupons are subject to availability and not applicable for Easter Week (April 7-23), Saint John festivities (from June 20-25 in Menorca), summer (July 15 to September 10) and Christmas (December 15 to January 15).
