As the main ferry operator covering the route between the Isle of Wight and the UK mainland, Wightlink carries over 4.6 million passengers a year, making it one of the largest domestic ferry companies in the country. These passengers include Isle of Wight residents travelling to work as well as holidaymakers and travellers visiting the island. Wightlink offers three different routes: two car ferry routes from Portsmouth and Lymington, and a speedy catamaran service from Portsmouth. With a regular timetable running throughout the day and cheaper prices with Wightlink voucher codes, it’s never been more convenient to get between the two destinations.
Aside from operating quick and easy ferries, Wightlink can also help you with where to stay once you get to the Isle of Wight: the company has teamed up with LateRooms.com, making it easier to book a hotel at the same time as you book your ferry ticket. And if you’re stuck with ideas of what to do once you get there, Wighlink has plenty of ideas, including attractions, outdoor activities like walking and cycling and information on events and festivals.
