Red Funnel has confirmed that its annual Black Friday sale is back again for another consecutive year, with one-third off vehicle ferry travel.

The offer is the ferry operator’s biggest and most flexible sale of the year and is available online:

The sale runs from 18 November to 2 December 2022 and allows customers to book for travel dates from now up to 30 October 2023, including throughout all school holidays and peak travel times, with the exception of 15 to 19 June.

The offer applies to travel of any duration in any direction, including day returns, long and short stays, and applies to all private vehicle bookings including cars, minibuses, motorhomes, motorcycles, caravans and other towed vehicles. Customers are welcome to make as many bookings as they wish, with no minimum spend required to obtain the savings.

Island residents should also look out for Red Funnel’s next ‘Big Book of Savings’ which includes a bonus offer, extending the duration of the sale.

Fran Collins, Chief Executive Officer at Red Funnel, said: “We’re thrilled to announce that our Black Friday sale is returning for another year. We hope this offer allows Islanders to book ahead and enjoy some extra travel occasions in 2023.

“This is also a great time for visiting family and friends to book their travel, so we hope anyone expecting visitors between now and next October will spread the word and help pass on some great savings.

“The sale presents a big opportunity for us to engage with holidaymakers from across the UK and get the Island on travel bucket lists for 2023, which is important as we continue to support the Island economy.”
