VICTORIA–BC Ferries has announced the ‘Size up the Savings’ promotion is back this year, just in time for summer vacation planning. On select sailings from June 17 through Sept. 13, customers with vehicles longer than 20 feet will pay only $2 per foot additional length charge (regularly $6.35) on the Tsawwassen/Swartz Bay and the Tsawwassen /Duke Point routes. The promotion applies to Wednesday and Saturday sailings starting at 4 p.m. and Sunday sailings before 9 a.m. for both routes, departing from either terminal.

“The Size up the Savings promotion provides customers with extra length vehicles an opportunity to save on select sailings this summer,” said Janet Carson, BC Ferries’ Vice President of Marketing and Travel Services. “This discount promotion is designed to shift traffic from busier sailings between Metro Vancouver and Vancouver Island and reward customers for travelling at off-peak times.” The Size up the Savings promotion is specifically for extra length private passenger vehicles and recreational vehicles. It is not applicable to commercial vehicles or buses.

Space on the selected sailings is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Reservations are recommended to ensure a spot on the sailing of choice. For more details about the Size up the Savings promotion as well as BC Ferries Vacations packages, visit bcferries.com.
