Over 600 pairs of free ferry tickets are up for grabs this month, including tickets to cross the Solent with Red Funnel, Wightlink and Hovertravel.
The tickets are being made available through a ballot and are for a range of ferry trips, from short island-hopping routes across Scotland and escapes to the Isle of Wight, Isle of Man, Channel Islands and Isles of Scilly, to cruise-style ferry journeys across the North and Irish Seas, as well as cross-Channel trips and even river journeys with spectacular views across London.
Entrants can apply for as many tickets as they like at www.bigferryfortnight.com when the ballot opens on Thursday 27th February 2020. People can also pre-register their interest in tickets now and will get exclusive early access. The ballot will close at midnight on Thursday 12th March 2020.
The ballot is only open to residents of Great Britain, Northern Ireland and the Isle of Man. Winners will be selected by random ballot and will receive a maximum of a pair of tickets per household.
Big Ferry Fortnight has evolved from National Ferry Fortnight, which was first launched in 2008 to showcase Britain’s extensive network of ferry routes and the benefits of travel by sea. The annual event is organised by Discover Ferries, the industry body representing 13 ferry companies operating in the UK, Ireland and British Islands.
Emma Batchelor, director of Discover Ferries, says:
“Holidaymakers look for richer holiday experiences that enable them to see a more authentic side of their destination and capture memories along the way – a trend we see widely on social media where #travel has been tagged more than 470 million times on Instagram alone.”
“The Big Ferry Fortnight Ballot is a great opportunity for people who may never have travelled by ferry before, offering them the chance to experience the benefits of travelling on the water and reaching some of the world’s most beautiful destinations – for free!”
