Plus, ferry company the Steam Packet has announced deposits for the 2013 will be accepted from Monday (May 28).
The 2013 TT deposit will be £10 for foot passengers and £30 for a vehicle, an increase on the vehicle deposit amount required for the previous 17 years.
Steam Packet Company Chief Executive Mark Woodward said:
“The deposit system is intended to help TT fans secure a place on the ferry and book accommodation a year in advance.”
“However, in recent years, as the deposit has become so cheap in real terms, there is evidence that some people are obtaining deposit bookings to secure an “option” for a place – or to sell it on – but without a firm commitment to coming to the TT.”
“What happens is that these reservations can in turn discourage genuine visitors from booking as they cannot obtain their preferred sailings. Ultimately, such action is not in the best interests of fans or the event.”
“To help promote committed bookings, we are increasing the deposit for vehicles to £30 for TT2013, which is still less than long-term inflation. Indeed, TT fare increases have been below inflation every year for the last 17 years.”
“As foot passenger space is more widely available throughout TT, this deposit will remain at only £10. And, of course, while the deposit for vehicle bookings is increasing by £10, the final balance will conversely be reduced by £10.”
