Wightlink supports military and emergency service personnel with discounts

Wightlink has signed up with the Defence Discount Service and Blue Light Card to offer discounts for serving and retired military personnel as well as people working in the emergency services.

More than a million people who hold these membership cards can now enjoy discounts off Wightlink vehicle and foot passenger fares. They can make bookings online through the Defence Discount Service and Blue Light Card or show their cards at ticket offices, if travelling as foot passengers.

Wightlink Chief Executive Keith Greenfield says:

“We are all indebted to military personnel and emergency service workers who often go far beyond the call of duty to keep us safe. Offering them a discount on travel to and from the Isle of Wight is Wightlink’s way of saying thank you.”

Tom Dalby, Head of the Defence Discount Service adds:

“We are delighted to be working with Wightlink and feel that this gives members a great saving opportunity.  Many of our members already visit the Isle of Wight each year and we feel that this opportunity will encourage many more to take the ferry and save along the way.”
