Free crossings to celebrate 5th anniversary of redfunnel.co.uk

To celebrate the fifth anniversary of its website, Red Funnel is offering free Hi-Speed crossings to those making vehicle bookings online. Off peak return vehicle crossings from Southampton to the Isle of Wight start from £45. For reservations and further details please book online at www.redfunnel.co.uk/travel.

With its stunning scenery and excellent selection of accommodation, the Isle of Wight is a perfect destination for both short breaks and day trips, and in the autumn months it is a fantastic place for those wanting to enjoy some of the UK’s best walking trails. After a day spent exploring the coastal paths, there are some superb pubs and restaurants where you can sit by roaring fires sampling a selection of beers and good food. Keen golfers can also enjoy a round at one of the Island’s courses.

As well as satisfying those with a love for the outdoors, the Isle of Wight boasts many visitor attractions such as Osborne House, Carisbrooke Castle and Dinosaur Isle. Dinosaur Isle is open all year and most other attractions remain open until mid October.

To qualify for the offer, tickets must be booked in September for travel before December 31, 2002. Those booking a trip originating in Southampton must spend a minimum of £45 in one single transaction and those booking a trip originating on the Island must spend a minimum of £35 in a single transaction.
