AutoPASS payment solution

From January 1st 2017 we will start using AutoPASS-chip (OBE) as payment on our ferries. All use of current discount cards will be terminated from this date.

From this day on we will also increase the transport capacity by approx. 30%, and the traffic flow will be considerably better. We will insert 3 newly built, modern and comfortable ferries. In total we will operate with 5 ferries in the Moss-Horten connection, and we will also have a sixth ferry standby.

For English customers who own our current discount card "verdikort" (filled up in the ticket office), we will transfer the rest amount back to your bank account.
Please, contact us by e-mail to get information about how to get the refund: bastohorten@fosen.no

For existing company customers:
The current “kontokunde”-agreement with use of "kontokort" (cards), will be ended when the last invoice from 2016 has been paid. The deposit will be returned to your bank account, and if you have a bank guarantee, this will be returned as well. If there are any differences on the customer account (for instance currency differences), we will adjust the amount that will be returned. We will send you an e-mail to inform you about the amount that will be refunded. Due to the huge workload around the liquidation of the current discount agreement, we ask for your understanding that there might be some processing time. The customer relationship is terminated as soon as the deposit is refunded, or the eventual Bank guarantee is returned. Reminder: When you bought your “kontokort” (cards), you paid a card fee. This card fee will not be refunded.
Important: We kindly ask you to send us your updated bank account number for the deposit return. IBAN and BIC/Swift code is required. Please, refer to your customer number.

For both existing and new customers:
There will be a change regarding the payment. Today you have a deposit or a bank guarantee as a financial security, and you pay the invoices after each month for all the crossings in the previous month. With the AutoPASS agreement, you have to prepay for each vehicle which is connected to the agreement. The prepayment is relative to each vehicle's length. The price for each crossing is deducted from the prepayment with 30 % discount. A new invoice will be sent when there is approx. 25 % left of the prepaid amount. There will be no other invoices from us besides the prepayment invoice.

Prepayment amounts:
Vehicles in category AP1 - AP2 (up to 8 meter length): 3.600 NOK for each vehicle incl. cargo.
Vehicles in category AP3 – AP6 (8, 01 – 17, 5 meter length): 12000 NOK for each vehicle incl. cargo.
Vehicles in category AP7 – AP9 (over 17, 5 meter length): 20.
000 NOK for each vehicle incl. cargo.

Note! - New change in rules:

After a review of the earlier rules in the AutoPASS regulation, the Government has decided to change the rules of the prepayment for each vehicle. The change will affect company with many vehicles which use our ferry connection.

This means that large users with more than 2 vehicles in length group AP3- AP6 (8 – 17,5 meter) or length group AP7 – AP9 (17,51 meter and upward), can ask for calculation of the prepayment invoice based on average expected monthly use/invoice size multiplied by 1,5. The amount is in total for all vehicles that has been registered in the supplementary agreement with Bastø Fosen.

The prepayment amounts in these groups are also reduced from 14.200 NOK to 12.000 NOK (AP3 - AP6) and from 27.000 NOK to 20.000 NOK (AP7 – AP9).


The table below applies to companies with «MORE THAN 2 VEHICLES» in the supplementary contract:









Per vehicle

Minimum number of vehicles which must pay full prepayment amount



Minimum amount



8 meter to17,5 meter





17,51 meter and upward





From the third vehicle and upward, following rules will apply:
The prepayment will be the highest amount of following:
- Minimum payment for 2 vehicles (24.000 NOK up to AP6) or (40.000 NOK for AP7 and upward).
- Minimum payment for expected use for 1,5 month for all vehicles which are registered in the contract.

This means that the calculation of the prepayment when you have over 2 vehicles must be done in the following way:
Discount price (in the right length group) per crossing multiplied by expected number of trips each month in total for all vehicles in the contract. The calculated amount per month must be multiplied by 1,5.

To achieve 30 % discount, the total length of the vehicle incl. cargo must be within the same or lower category of length which has been prepaid. To have this discount from day 1, January 1st 2017, it is important to sign a new AUTOPASS agreement with Bastø Fosen before the end of the year. Without an agreement, you will get 10 % discount when using an AutoPASS-chip (OBE). In addition to the Norwegian AutoPASS-chip (OBE), you can use chips from foreign services providers which are included in the EasyGo- cooperation, for instance BroBizz®, ØresundBizz®, AutoBizz or Go-Box.
