GENERAL TRAVEL INFORMATION
I have been asked to provide details of travel and accommodation to the Island.

I think I can do no better than refer you to the Isle of Man Tourist Board on TEL: +01624 686801 and their web site at www.gov.im which is pretty comprehensive and covers just about every aspect of the Isle of Man - and they'll send you a Tourist Guide Book for free too.

The following web sites should also be of interest to people coming to the Island for the Fest. or at any other time:
www.iomtt.com
www.mcb.net
www.isle-of-man.com

Believe it or not the CIA Fact Book has some fascinating info about the Island. You can find it at;
www.cia.com



ACCOMMODATION
Accommodation on the Island is reasonably plentiful and, on the whole, not too expensive - but shop around. Quite a few of the above web site links will give you a lot of blurb about hotels, phone numbers, rates and so on.

The quality varies enormously and it it will pay you to make an effort to ring first or check the rooms before parting with your cash.



TRAVEL INFORMATION
The cheapest way to get here is probably by Ferry from Heysham, Liverpool, Dublin Belfast or Troon in Scotland.
To check ferries and book online (and save a bit too) click Isle of Man Seacat .

Flights are available from Heathrow, City of London Airport, Gatwick, Manchester, Liverpool, Blackpool as well as other airports. If you book in advance tickets are definitely cheaper as usual but probably the best price, if you are travelling fom the South anyway, is from Luton airport - again, booked in advance.

Click the following links for airline info:

or the icons to the left to check timetables, fares and to book online. But note that, so far, my experience with BA since they took over from Manx Airlines has not been entirely without problems. However their web site booking arrangements seem to work well and you save 10.00 per ticket. I don't know of any problems with British European (also known as Flybe) or Euromanx.
