Family & Friends Discount

Following a public statement from the First Minister on Sunday 22nd March 2020 regarding travel we have had to make some changes to the way people book, and indeed who can travel. The First Minister stated, ‘from now on ferries will be for those who live on our islands, who have an essential need to travel to or from the mainland and for essential supplies or business.’

The Family and Friends nomination form is currently disabled for this reason. We look forward to welcoming Family and Friends on board again soon.
