Isle of Man TT Circuit
Isle of Man
Getting the Isle of Man is not as difficult as people seem to think!
This is definitely the way to go.
There are many direct flights to the Castletown airport, IOM. Most popular routes are direct from Dublin, Liverpool, Manchester and London; check http://skyscanner.net for ideas.
If you are on one of our packages (apart from the Essentials -- you just walk to the hotel!), we will collect you from the airport. Be sure to tell us your flight details.
If you want to bring a vehicle, you will need to book your ferry a LONG time in advance.
There is only one operator, the Steam Packet Company: https://www.steam-packet.com/
Spaces usually sell out within a day of launch, although you might find places on less popular times and routes, especially returning on say Sunday or Monday rather than the super-poplar Saturday. If your ferry bookings don't match our package dates, contact us and we will see if we can squeeze you in somewhere -- may mean a hotel switch but probably better than sleeping in your car or bike!
Ferry slots are re-opened briefly sometime in March where they sell the places reserved and not paid for.
If you are really desperate we may be able to help, but we don't have any bookings "in our pockets". We would normally only attempt this for a very difficult booking -- such as a motorhome or supercar. If you are coming by sedan car or motorcycle, and can't get a berth, strongly recommend you fly!
Well everyone wants to ride their bike on the TT circuit, especially the closed Mountain section! If you are having trouble with ferry berths as noted above, try different dates. However if it doesn't have to be YOUR motorcycle, there are a couple of agencies on the island who rent bikes. Again you want to contact them sooner rather than later; we may be able to help a bit, but we don't have any bikes on provisional reserve.
If you DO manage to get your bike over (or rent) please BE CAREFUL! Every year there are many more spectator fatalities than participant. Respect the speed limits, do not overestimate your abilities.
Remember: assume half the bikes & cars you pass won't see you and will swerve into you at the last moment; the other half WILL see you and swerve into you at the last moment!
Drive on the left.
We take no responsibility for you on the road and our travel liability does not extend to activities you participate in on your own.
