Isles of Scilly Travel has revealed details of its 2018 Locals’ Offer, giving Devon and Cornwall residents sizeable discounts on day trip sailing to the islands.

After the success of last year’s offer, which ran throughout March to June, the 2018 Locals’ Offer has now been extended to run from March until the end of October, covering the whole duration of Scillonian III’s sailing season, and offering savings of more than 40% on brochure fares.

Marketing and communications manager, Sharon Sandercock, said: “After running our popular Locals’ Offer over the last few years, we are thrilled to be able to extend the duration of the offer.

“We hope this will encourage those living closest to this stunning archipelago to visit Scilly and see for themselves just how beautiful the islands are – and we’re happy to enable them to do so for less cost, as part of our ongoing commitment to supporting the communities we serve and work within.”

The Locals’ Offer is valid for day trips on the Scillonian III throughout March to October excluding Saturdays, Bank Holidays and during busy events such as the Gig Weekend from May 2-8.

Tickets cost £25pp for adults (15+), £15pp for children (2-15) and £10pp for infants (0-2) and include return same-day travel on Scillonian III. Tickets can be booked by calling the Travel Centre on 01736 334220 quoting ‘Local18’.

This offer is only open to full-time residents of Devon and Cornwall, and for new day trip bookings made for Scillonian III. Passengers will need to provide proof of address when collecting their tickets or the offer will be void.
