MIFC firmly rejects CalMac’s penalty charging proposals

In a meeting with CalMac management this week, the company’s proposed ticket cancellation charges were discussed. We firmly rejected the proposals as punitive, unjust, misguided, disproportionate and damaging to the islands. The manner of the proposal was also completely contrary to the Islands Act.

CalMac had proposed to levy a charge of £10 for making vehicle reservation changes, and in addition, passengers would forfeit up to 100% of the ticket value should they change plans and travel on a different sailing to that originally intended.

  2. The ferry journey to the Isle of Wight from Southampton is about the same distance as Oban to Mull – a flexible return ticket for the former costs more than £100 while to Mull, a fully flexible return with car is just £37.
