Isle of Wight ferry fare slammed as ‘daylight robbery’


Regarding the letter from Maureen Mansell who had been charged £125 by Wightlink for a single journey (CP 24-12-23).

I can trump that by £50 having been charged £175 for a single journey from Portsmouth to Fishbourne on December 23.

I had booked for the previous day using a Multilink pass but thanks to a cancelled BA flight from Poland arrived 24 hours late.

As a consequence, in order to get back to pick up my dogs from care, I was forced to pay a rate that was frankly daylight robbery.

I thought piracy had been outlawed but obviously it continues to be practiced unchallenged on the Solent.

Perhaps the ferry companies should fly the Jolly Roger on their vessels!
