Steamship Company Want Accommodation Providers To Meet Them Half Way On Offer

scillonian gangwayThe Isles of Scilly Steamship Company is offering reduced fares for visitors this June. But they’re asking accommodation providers to meet them halfway.

Amada Pender from the Island’s Partnership says they’ve been listening to business owners on the islands who are say that June is not as busy as it used to be.

They’ve negotiated a special rate with the Steamship Company that will allow visitors to get 25% of an outward flight from Land’s End, with 50% off their return on the Scillonian III.

All they’re asking is that accommodation providers also offer a deal to visitors booking and holidaying in June. It could be a straight discount or offering 4 nights for the price of 3.

Amanda says there’s still a myth that the islands are hard to get to, which is totally wrong, and she says it’s important that everyone knows that.

The June holiday offer will be promoted on the Simply Scilly website and they’ll also be taking out adverts in the regional press.

Amanda says she’s already had a fantastic response, with 25 businesses coming back to her yesterday afternoon with offers up to 50% off.

She says the Islands Partnership is about people working together and this is a great chance for businesses to show they can do that for the good of the islands.

Anyone who wants to be part of the promotion needs to contact Amy or Amanda at the Islands Partnership, on 424036, before midday Monday, letting them know the discount they’re offering.

They’ll get a code which their customers can then use on the Steamship Company’s website.

The Steamship Company have also reduced the cost of a day return on the Scillonian III to £25 per adult in June.
