BC Ferries offers discounts for over-height vehicles
Select sailings on the Tsawwassen – Swartz Bay and Tsawwassen – Duke Point routes from June 23 to Oct. 13
VICTORIA –Just in time for local summer vacation planning, BC Ferries has announced a new promotion for over-height vehicles like RVs, campers and motorhomes. Customers in private passenger vehicles over seven feet in height who book in advance can save on select sailings on the Tsawwassen – Swartz Bay and Tsawwassen – Duke Point routes for travel from June 23 through Oct. 13.
Over-height vehicle Saver fares are now available for $76.10, including a free reservation. With the purchase of a Saver fare, over-height vehicles can also save 50 per cent per additional foot in length (over 20 feet). To take advantage of the over-height vehicles promotion, travellers must book and pay for their fares in advance. The special offer is not available at drive up terminal ticket booths.
“As travel restrictions are lifted, we are ensuring fares are affordable for families who plan to travel with their over-height recreational vehicles this summer,” said Janet Carson, BC Ferries’ Vice President of Marketing & Customer Experience. “This Saver fare on over-height vehicles should help ease traffic on our more popular sailings between Metro Vancouver and Vancouver Island by rewarding customers that travel at less busy times. Shifting traffic on these routes will reduce overall sailing waits and provide greater travel certainly for all customers.”
The over-height vehicles promotion is specifically for over-height passenger vehicles and over-height vehicles towing a boat or trailer. It is not applicable to commercial vehicles or buses.
