Sponsorship & Discounts

Return Foot Passenger

We offer a 50% discount scheme to benefit adult foot passengers accompanying children on the ferry or making an immediate return journey from St Margaret’s Hope.

Terms and Conditions:
The discount will only apply to adult foot passengers travelling from St. Margaret’s Hope to Gills Bay and back on the next immediate sailing. The discount does not apply to passengers starting a return journey from Gills Bay.
Full payment will be taken on the outward journey and the return trip will be free.
The discount cannot be applied to a child fare but they can still use a Loyalty Card.
Please inform the Purser or Customer Services staff when paying on the outward journey that you intend to claim the discount on the return part of your journey.
Normal Conditions of Carriage will apply. Please contact our Booking Office on 0800 688 8998 to make your reservation.
