RE: 2017 booking
I've got through, circa 300 phone calls 1hr 20 mins and all done. Got the bookings I wanted as well. Such a painful process but all sorted now, glamping next year taking camper van Mrs not happy to camp after last year hence having to sit it out this year.
Going across for the classic ferry prices are so much more reasonable for that - old story supply and demand

Always wonder why the Racket don't wait until the TT is at least underway before opening next years bookings. Just chews up the system for those looking to sort/re-arrange this years ticket.
Like me ;-(

RE: 2017 booking
Ah well lucky you. Both me and my son have been online for around 3hrs and keep getting the old "booking system is busy please try again later message". Telephone no joy either. Permanently engaged or transfers to another line then goes dead. Total rubbish!! they know perfectly well this is going to happen eveyr year so why don't they do something about it!!

RE: 2017 booking
I just got through on the booking system.

For info. I was booking 3 with bikes. Got 02:15 Heysham to IOM on 2nd June
and back 9th June 15:00 IOM to Liverpool

Friday 2nd Jun to the island is sold out apart from that 2 am sailing. |
Sat 10th is sold our leaving the island.

So I will have to get there a bit earlier than I wanted and leave a bit earlier as well missing the end of racing but it's better than nothing.

What a palaver!!!

RE: 2017 booking
Logged in last night and booked the slots I wanted.. Boat leaves in two days time cos it's for this TT, 2016.
TT2017? There's not a chance I'll queue up or wait on the phone for hours, I'll book that next May, about a week before I go like I usually do. ;-)

It's unlikely you have been missed if you qualify for priority booking. Have you checked your junk folder?

RE: 2017 booking
Having posted earlier in this thread I thought I would update it.

If you read it I was growling about missing out on booking a ferry for next year even though I had qualified to book early as I had marshalled last year.
Well today I am pleased to say that I received a confirmation of my booking with an apology for not contacting me sooner.
Apparently because of the heavy work flow my booking was lost. Although annoyed I can understand that so not something I wanted to give either the staff or SP a rocket for.
I wanted Liverpool crossings but unfortunately they could only give me Heysham so an even longer journey for me then from down South.
Still its now nice to sit here listening to Manx Radio knowing I will be back there next year.
Next hurdle is to get somewhere to stay now.
