Travel Club members can book online
Members of the Isles of Scilly Steamship Group’s Travel Club are now able to make discounted bookings online for the first time.
The company has launched a dedicated portal on www.islesofscilly-travel.co.uk after 78% of responders in a December survey of island residents said they wanted to be able to book travel online.
Steamship Group Chief Executive Rob Goldsmith said: “Earlier this year we significantly increased air travel discounts for island residents in winter months in response to the survey of views, so we are delighted to deliver another key benefit that was requested by a large number of people. We look forward to working on a range of further improvements to our services this year.”
Residents' portal www.islesofscilly-travel.co.uk/islander-news-and-booking also includes a live vessel tracker for Scillonian III and Gry Maritha, real-time travel updates for Scillonian III and Skybus, freight information, downloadable forms, and free images and videos.
The company said that it is hoping to 'expand the online service with additional freight functionality and a facility for islanders to amend their travel arrangements'.
The Steamship Group will shortly be writing to all Travel Club members with information on how to access their online accounts and a guide to the booking process.
