It’s the biggest promotion BC Ferries has ever run, and it could save travellers a bundle.
The company has announced a major fleetwide pricing promotion of 50% savings on vehicle fares.
It starts mid-November and on the busy South Coast routes, the promotion will be in effect on select Monday through Thursday and Saturday sailings.
President Mike Corrigan says its to encourage people to use the service during off-peak times.
“What we’re trying to do is really to test the concept that can we at least break even on the Ferry system if we incentivize people to travel at different times of the day and of the week.”
Corrigan also says ferry travel is up 4% this year over last thanks to the low Canadian dollar vs. the U.S. greenback.
