If you book directly with us either via our own website and therefore ‘MyUK.Travel‘, or by telephone we offer discounted ferry tickets for those who are travelling by car.
This is to incentivize you not to book through the big online booking agents e.g. Booking.com, Laterooms, Expedia etc since they take anything from 15-20% commission from us for the value of your booking.
I pass on large savings that can be on offer from the ferry companies to make your visit cheaper and encourage you to come! By booking directly with us we save paying the booking agents’ commission and that compensates me for the time spent organising your ferry tickets. Once I have all your travel requirements I will get a quote for the nearest ferry crossing to your desired times and clear the cost with you before booking. I will then forward the etickets to you for you to print and travel with. The trade tickets are normally cheaper and the equivalent of a full standard ticket with its more lenient cancellation and modification conditions.
We add the charge to your accommodation and you can pay on arrival here. We generally find that people are very pleased with the speed and simplicity of the service we offer.
The companies operate from Portsmouth and Lymington (Wightlink) and Southampton (Red Funnel). Foot passengers can also travel from Southampton by hi speed catamaran (Red Jet) or similar craft with Wightlink from Portsmouth .
