How to amend/cancel IOW Festival & Event bookings

In response to the news that the Isle of Wight Festival 2020 will not go ahead, due to the developing situation with COVID-19 (Coronavirus), we have made temporary changes to the way we process bookings for cancelled / postponed events.

For customers with a ferry booking for a specific event which has been cancelled, or postponed to a date they can no longer attend, we have the following flexible options for amending or cancelling:

1. Free Amendments

Amend your current booking to a future date, with no amendment fee. This can be any date in the future, including the 2021 Isle of Wight Festival dates when they are announced - so you can pre-book your preferred sailing for next year’s event. Your amended dates can be changed again free of charge, at your convenience. Fare differences will apply where applicable.

If you have purchased IOW Festival tickets with Red Funnel, these can also be deferred to the 2021 event.


2. Booking Credit

Put your booking on hold with a credit. You will then have until 31 December 2020 to decide what to do with your credit. You can either choose to put it towards a future booking or if you’d prefer you can cancel it (see option 3).


3. Cancellation

If you’d prefer to simply cancel your ferry booking with Red Funnel you can. We are temporarily waiving cancellation fees on ferry bookings for customers holding tickets for cancelled events, so you will receive a full refund.

If you purchased Isle of Wight Festival tickets from Red Funnel along with travel, and you choose to cancel, those will also be refunded at the same time.
