Nearly 70% of all visitors to the TT in 2019 came by sea, but we’re here to tell you spending four hours on a boat isn’t the only way to reach the Isle of Man. For fans with access to five of the British Isles most prominent regional airports the Isle of Man is less than an hour’s flying time away, and you might be surprised just how cheap you can pick up tickets.
Low cost airline easyJet have released their schedule for summer 2021 giving you plenty of time to plan your trip to the home of real road racing.
A point to bear in mind when you are thinking about your TT adventure is that ferries are often scheduled for less convenient times, can require more of a journey time on the UK side and the crossings themselves eat up to four hours of your precious holiday time.
Whilst the ferries will continue to remain the most popular option for visitors wanting to bring cars, bikes or vans, flying is increasingly being seen as a viable option, especially in conjunction with the Isle of Man’s excellent public transport network. “Go Explore” cards allow travel on all Isle of Man Transport bus and rail routes for up to seven days giving fans the ability to really get the most out of the island and the TT Races. For those who prefer to remain in control of their travel arrangements there are car and bike hire options available.
