Families travelling to the Isle of Wight can look forward to huge savings next year, with Wightlink extending its ‘Kids Go Free’ promotion across all school holidays and half terms in 2020. For the first time next year, the offer will also be valid for seniors, so grandparents can join in the family fun.
Under five aged kids always travel free with the ferry operator but when the schools take a break, families can take up to two children aged 5-15 for free with every adult or senior foot passenger day return ticket. With no need for a passport and a great deal on a family day out, the Isle of Wight should be on everyone’s school holiday agenda next year.
Commenting on the Kids Go Free offer, Keith Greenfield, CEO of Wightlink said: “At Wightlink, we know how difficult and expensive it can be for parents to keep their kids occupied during the school breaks. Organising activities and holidays can be time consuming and stressful, so we’re determined to take the hassle out of what should be an exciting family activity.”
When it comes to planning a day trip to the Isle of Wight in 2020, families are spoilt for choice; from sporting events to music and food festivals, there’s something for every age and interest. In February half term, families can celebrate Chinese New Year at the popular spirit of the Orient event at Robin Hill (14-22 February), get hands on with history at Carisbrooke Castle (15-23 February) or go on one of dinosaur isle’s guided fossil walks which run throughout the school holidays.
