With the number of motorcycles booked for TT2012 currently running 10% ahead of the same period last year, the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company is looking to boost visitor numbers even more by again introducing its popular ‘TT Taster Offer’.
The offer allows visiting fans to attend the TT Festival during the quieter Practice Week period for just £99 for a motorcycle and rider. This offer price has been held for the third consecutive year and can be booked online at www.steam-packet.com
For people also requiring accommodation, Steam Packet Holidays has joined forces with a number of Isle of Man hotels and have 3-night packages available from just £175 per person, which includes ferry travel with motorcycle and 3 nights’ bed and breakfast.
Enquiries and bookings can be made by calling 01624 645777.
The TT Taster products will be promoted at the Motorcycle Live Show at the NEC in Birmingham from 19-27 November. The Steam Packet Company will be represented at the show during the final weekend, when the Sunday is dedicated to the TT.
Steam Packet Company Chief Executive Mark Woodward said: ‘It is great that advance bookings for motorcycles are ahead of the same period last year and are indicative of the event’s increase in popularity. The TT Taster Offers have proved popular in the last couple of years and have helped boost visitor numbers during the festival’s quieter periods, therefore making a vital contribution to the local economy.’
