“Low cost” ferry
From 2010, a new shipping company began making service on the route to Elba: The “Blue Navy.”
The Travel Agency “Ilva”, main reference for Hotel accommodations, reached an agreement with “Blue Navy” and the Hotel Capo Sud adhered.
This agreement consists in a fixed amount of tickets at “low cost” price (in case “low cost ” tickets are already sold out, the available rates are anyhow interesting).
Guests who book their stay directly with us (via e-mail or phone) can request a discount code for the purchasing of the ferry ticket for low cost price with Blunavy.
If you don’t have a credit card, you can send us the money by bank transfer, we will buy the ticket for you through agency ILVA and we’ll send you the ticket per e mail.
Please consider that choosing the bank deposit way of payment, the “low cost” tickets might be all sold out during the period that elapses between the request and the availability of bank credit in our favor. Further “Blue Navy” should change prices in the meanwhile.
Hoping that this initiative meet Your needs, also for “low season” vacancies, exploiting a ferry transition at advantageous cost.
