2,400 chances to win a pair of ferry tickets in the Big Ferry Fortnight Ballot

The Big Ferry Fortnight public ballot opens on Saturday (23 March) with more than 2,400 free pairs of ferry tickets up for grabs.

Residents from the UK and the Isle of Man can apply for tickets via the online ballot system where they will need to register in order to apply for free tickets on more than 50 routes across the UK, Ireland and British Islands, before the closing date of 6 April.

DFDS are among 13 ferry companies offering tickets in the ballot

The tickets, which are allocated in pairs are for trips ranging from short island-hopping routes across Scotland, larger island escapes such as the Isle of Wight, Isle of Man, Channel Islands and Isles of Scilly, to cruise-style ferries across the North and Irish Seas, as well as cross-Channel trips and even river journeys.

The ballot is part of a celebration of ferry travel, developed by ferry industry body, Discover Ferries, and includes tickets from all 13 of its ferry members.

Latest industry figures show that in 2018 more than 38 million passenger journeys were made by ferry within the UK and to the British Islands, Ireland, France, Spain and Holland.

And a recent survey by IRN Research also revealed that 92 per cent of ferry travellers were overwhelming happy with their experience last year.

Says Emma Batchelor, Director of Discover Ferries: “We are inviting residents from the UK and the Isle of Man to discover ferry travel for themselves by offering them the chance to win a pair of free tickets on a route of their choice.

“I am delighted to say we have already seen over 1,300 people pre-register for the ballot, which is fantastic, and with over 2,400 pairs of tickets up for grabs, there is a good chance you will be able to bag tickets on one of your chosen routes.”

Discover Ferries members taking part in the Big Ferry Fortnight ballot are: Brittany Ferries, Caledonian MacBrayne, Condor Ferries, DFDS, Hovertravel, Irish Ferries, Isle of Man Steam Packet Company, Isles of Scilly Travel, MBNA Thames Clippers, P&O Ferries, Red Funnel, Stena Line and Wightlink.
