Residents of Cornwall and parts of Devon could save 35% on day trip sailings to the Isles of Scilly this summer thanks to a new Locals’ Offer for 2017.

Isles of Scilly Travel has brought back its extremely popular deal for Westcountry residents, allowing people living in the TR, PL, EX22 and EX23 postcode areas to enjoy a day trip like no other so they can discover the destination on their doorstep.

The offer covers all of Cornwall and areas of Devon including Plymouth, Tavistock, Holsworthy and Ivybridge, enabling residents to take advantage of reduced day sailing tickets for midweek visits, with a saving of more than 35% on the brochure fares.

Rob Goldsmith, Chief Executive of the Isles of Scilly Steamship Group, said: “Following the huge success of two locals’ offer we ran last summer and autumn, we are delighted to be extending the offer from March to June for 2017, giving residents of Cornwall and parts of Devon a significant discount on midweek day tickets to the island.

“The offer allows those living closest to the stunning Isles of Scilly to visit for less, as part of our ongoing commitment to supporting the communities we serve and work within.”

The day trip offer will be available on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday throughout March, April, May and June.

Return tickets cost £25pp for adults, £15pp for children and £10pp for infants, and proof of residency in the TR, PL, EX22 and EX23 postcode areas will be required on collection.

The offer is only open to full-time residents of the areas, and for new day trip bookings made for Scillonian III for the days listed. Exclusions apply during peak periods around event weekends, including the weekdays immediately prior to and after Gig Weekend, and on some specific dates.
