SANDBANKS Ferry has extended discounts for bulk purchases of car passes following the launch of the ferry's Ticket Card.

The Sandbanks Ferry Ticket Card (SFTC) was launched last year.

Following the launch, customers can now purchase 100 passes at the new higher discounted rate of 38 per cent, which equates to just £2.95 per crossing.

Holders of any unused paper book tickets for motor cars will also be able to convert them into Passes and have them transferred to their SFTC.

Managing Director of the Sandbanks Ferry Company, Mike Kean said: "We strive to accommodate customer requests, such as more than one card per account, to enable travellers to get the best value from bulk purchases and enjoy the convenience of using the ferry on a regular basis.

"We are pleased to announce these latest offerings for locals which will allow them to enjoy the continued use of the ferry and provide more of them with even greater savings than before."

To be eligible for the above offers, SFTC's must be registered to a BH postcode before March 31 2021.

Customers will also be able to benefit from two cards per account as an extra bonus.

SFTC’s are available free of charge from the Ferry Office and the Toll Booths on Ferry Road.
