Red Funnel launches Twizy Car Hire Packages

06-04-2016 Red Funnel has announced pricing for its Twizy electric car hire packages for foot passengers travelling to the Isle of Wight via Southampton. 

Red Funnel customers can now explore the beautiful Isle of Wight by hiring Renault’s fun electric 2-seater Twizy cars from “Hire a Twizy” as part of a great value package which includes return foot passenger travel from Southampton to West Cowes (with East Cowes coming later).

A pre-booked Twizy will be waiting on arrival, giving customers a novel, fun and environmentally friendly way to explore every corner of the Island. So whether it’s a day trip to the beach or a visit to an attraction with a leisurely stop-off at a pub for lunch, a Twizy is the perfect travel companion.

Day Package Prices – available to pre-book online
1 Twizy Day Package     £49.00
Package includes day return foot passenger ferry travel for 1 person from Southampton to West Cowes, hire of a Twizy for a day from “Hire a Twizy” and a Satnav pre-loaded with the location of all charging points. The cost for an additional person is £9.

2 Twizy Day Package     £79.00
Package includes day return foot passenger ferry travel for two people from Southampton to West Cowes, hire of two Twizy’s for a day from “Hire a Twizy”, each fitted with a Satnav pre-loaded with the location of all charging points. The cost for an additional person is £9.00

Note: Red Funnel’s Twizy packages must be booked at least the day before travelling. The driver must be 21-75 years old and hold a full UK driving licence which must be shown to “Hire a Twizy” on arrival. A refundable damage deposit of £150 per vehicle is payable on collection.

Each Twizy has sufficient battery range to circumnavigate the Island’s coastline on a single charge but there are charging points conveniently located across the Island. For peace of mind each Twizy comes with a Satnav which is pre-loaded with points of interest and the places to recharge the battery.

Jonathan Green, Red Funnel’s marketing and communications director commented “We are delighted to announce our new Twizy Packages which are likely to prove extremely popular with visitors seeking a fun and environmentally friendly day-out on the Island this spring.”

Red Funnel’s Twizy Packages are on sale now from www.redfunnel.co.uk/twizy
