Tenner offer for National Ferry Fortnight

04-03-2016 Red Funnel Ferries has announced its 2016 National Ferry Fortnight offer in a musical crescendo, with Tenor singer Richard Knight giving away £10 vouchers to lucky customers on board a ferry sailing from Southampton to East Cowes. Customers had a great time deciding what to buy from the exciting range of locally sourced food and drinks available on board.

Red Funnel’s National Ferry Fortnight £10 voucher offer is aimed at ferry first-timers but is available to anyone who books a private vehicle via www.redfunnel.co.uk/NFF  between 5 and 19 March 2016. The offer applies to staying visits taken this year, excluding just two weekends.

The Isle of Wight is a perfect place for a relaxing holiday or short-break and getting there by car is easy with no limits on luggage, pets, bikes, kayaks and other essential holiday items. Drive aboard one of Red Funnel’s frequent sailings from Southampton for a scenic cruise across the Solent and enjoy a great range of superb facilities onboard. For early-birds, Red Funnel’s famous full English breakfast is a great way to start the day and if travelling later on there’s delicious hot dishes, fresh salads, deep-filled baguettes and tasty sandwiches available to eat on board or take-away. Similarly, there’s a wide range of hot and cold drinks and alcohol beverages on offer - if the sun’s out there’s no better place than the promenade deck to enjoy a glass of wine or an ice cream. There’s also plenty to keep the kids occupied with touch-screen games and entertainment and free Wi-Fi throughout the ship. Pet owners also have their own luxury, contemporary designed lounge on the top deck with lift access and magnificent sea views.  

Whether you are looking for adventure or relaxation, the Isle of Wight offers a huge range of places to stay from posh boutique hotels, friendly seaside B&B’s and beautiful self-catering cottages. If you like camping you’ll love Glamping with proper beds, a wood stove and a relaxing hot tub! There’s also no shortage of yurts, tepees, tree houses or airstream caravans if you are looking for that retro cool holiday vibe.

With miles of safe golden beaches, unspoilt countryside, a beautiful rugged coastline and quaint villages with real-ale pubs serving delicious home-grown food, the Isle of Wight is an adventure playground for thrill seekers whilst for many it’s the place to relax from the pace of city life, enjoy some sun and breathe in the fresh air.

Red Funnel’s Marketing and Communications Director Jonathan Green said, “Customers were delighted with their tenner from a Tenor to mark the launch of our 2016 National Ferry Fortnight campaign. The Isle of Wight is the perfect destination for ferry first timers seeking fun and relaxation on their doorstep - with vehicle crossings every hour from Southampton, the Island is accessible in just over two hours from London”.
