(10 March 2021) The Isle of Man Steam Packet Company has confirmed that passengers affected will be contacted following the cancellation of the 2021 Isle of Man Classic TT and Manx Grand Prix.
Any customers booked to travel from 21stAugust – 4th September inclusive will be offered the option to transfer their booking to next year’s event, retain their 2021 booking in the hope that travel restrictions will be relaxed or, alternatively, receive a full refund. Staff will be in contact with passengers affected by 20th March with an automated rebooking/refund process, and are advising that that there is no need to directly contact the Company at this time.
Isle of Man Steam Packet Company Chief Executive Mark Woodward said: ‘Of course it is disappointing that there will be no Classic TT and Manx Grand Prix, but we understand the difficulties in organising events this year.
‘We will be offering the same process as we did for the Isle of Man TT, so customers will be able to seamlessly transfer to the equivalent sailings for 2022, opt to retain their 2021 booking or receive a full refund. We thank passengers for their patience and understanding while our Reservations Team works through this period of high demand.’
Booked passengers will be able to transfer to 2022 at the same rates as 2021 and 2020. Amendment fees have also been waived to allow passengers to book alternative services.
