Year of Young People Logo Young Scot Logo

2018 is the Year of Young People and in order to show our support and celebrate this fantastic opportunity, CalMac are offering the following 2 initiatives to YOYP *Ambassadors to travel on our services at a discounted rate.

* "YoYP 2018 Ambassadors are involved in making sure that young people and organisations in local communities know about YoYP 2018 activities, and together with other Ambassadors, will support projects and activity with local authorities, third sector partners and other organisations to showcase opportunities for young people to shine locally, nationally and globally" ~ Young Scot

 


Terms and Conditions:  CalMac Year of Young People (YOYP) Ticketing Initiative.

Offer 1: 50% off YOYP Ambassadors 

Participants must be a YOYP Ambassador. 

Travel is for 1x island, mainland or inter-island return

The offer will run for 1 year, from 01/06/2018 - 31/05/2019.  This will support the idea of legacy building and will allow for young ambassadors who are finding their feet to continue to improve, grow and spread the good word throughout our communities.

Tickets for this offer are available to purchase from routes with port offices only; purchases via non-manned slipways, on-board & online are unavailable for these offers

Tickets are for foot passengers only and are given on a first come, first serve basis.

Upon arrival at the terminal, Ambassadors will be asked to provide ID and their CalMac YOYP Ambassador voucher.  Once their details have been confirmed by the ticket clerk, a discounted 'Adult/Ambasr.50% YYP' or 'Child/Ambasr.50%YYP' return ticket can then be sold in exchange of the voucher

Offer 2: Free travel for YOYP Island Ambassadors to YOYP Events.

Participants must be a YOYP 'Island' Ambassador (e.g. be an island resident, living specifically within our West Coast network).

Travel is for 5x Island to mainland return, or inter-island returns travel only.

Travel reduction is only permitted if the participant is travelling for a YOYP Event. 

The offer will run for 1 year, from 01/06/2018 - 31/05/2019.  This will support the idea of legacy building and will allow for young ambassadors who are finding their feet to continue to improve, grow and spread the good word throughout our communities.

Tickets for this offer are available to purchase from routes with port offices only; purchases via non-manned slipways, on-board & online are unavailable for these offers

Tickets are for foot passengers only and are given on a first come, first serve basis.

Upon arrival at the terminal, Island Ambassadors will be asked to provide ID and their CalMac YOYP Island Ambassador voucher.  Once their details have been confirmed by the ticket clerk, an 'Island Ambassador YOYP' return ticket can then be issued in exchange of the voucher.

 

Additional factors to be aware of:

YOYP Ambassador vouchers are in addition to any vouchers an ambassador may have as part of being a Young Scot card holder. 

Young Scot card allows travel with vouchers if you are aged 16 to 18; YOYP covers ages 8 to 26.  Due to this, you may be issued an adult ticket ( for ages 16-26) or child ticket (for ages 8-15) for the 50% off offer.

Ambassadors will be provided with their YOYP CalMac vouchers via post.
