The Isle of Man Steam Packet Company has announced a new discount for ‘Friends & Family’ looking to visit the Island during 2012.

The offer, launched in the latest edition of Steam Packet Times, sees friends and family receive 50% off Standard Vehicle Fares for journeys between now and the end of 2012.

However, to take advantage of the discount, bookings must be made by your friends and family between Friday, April 20 and Friday, May 11 using the following codes:
•       CVFF – 50% off* Standard Return Fare Car + Driver and any Additional Passengers
•       DVFF – 50% off* 5-day Standard Return Fare Car + Driver and any Additional Passengers

Marketing and Online Manager Renée Caley explained: ‘Many of us have friends and family who live off-Island, who we don’t get to see as often as we’d like. The “Friends & Family” offer means they can enjoy a break in the Island, perhaps for a summer holiday or a Christmas gathering, or for a special occasion such as a wedding or birthday. We want to make it easier for friends and family to visit the Island – so please pass on the codes to your friends and relatives so they don’t miss out!’

Renée added: ‘We previewed “Friends & Family” at last month’s On Your Doorstep Exhibition at the Villa Marina and it was very well received by visitors on the day.’

To take advantage of the offer, your friends and relatives need to visit and enter the relevant fare code when making a booking.

*Terms and conditions apply and subject to availability. Valid for Standard Vehicle Fare bookings made between 20/04/2012 and 11/05/2012 for travel up until 31/12/2012.
