Transferring luggage to other islands
If you’re staying on Tresco, St. Martin’s, Bryher or St. Agnes, please also attach the relevant, coloured ‘Off Island’ label from Penzance Quay. This will help to ensure your luggage comes with you on the next part of your journey. Off island luggage if often loaded onto the inter-island boats through the side door of the Scillonian by our staff (to save you carrying it down the steps), please ensure your luggage is secure, and each individual piece of luggage weighs no more than 20kg.
The fare you’ve paid applies to your booking and luggage from Penzance to St. Mary’s Quay only. If you are going to an off-island, there will be a further charge from St. Marys to your destination island by the local inter-island boats. When checking your luggage in at Penzance, please ensure that the correct coloured label is applied to your luggage and that it is placed into the relevant off-island container.
If you would like to ship large freight items to an off island, please contact the Travel Centre in advance on 01736 334220 to arrange onward travel(please note that due to tides, we do not guarantee delivery the same day). Please do not leave your luggage unattended.
