Dear Mr Wilkinson
Please find confirmation letter with regard to the cancellation of

Dear Customer,
Please accept my deepest personal apologies for having to cancel your
motorcycle booking with SpeedFerries. Unfortunately, we will have to
stop carrying all kinds of motorcycles from 1 May 2007. I am really
sorry to have to take this step, which I sincerely hope will be a
temporary measure only. However, with the present concept of port
turnaround time and loading/discharge and even more importantly the lack
of safe lashing for the bikes onboard I have to take this decision. At
the moment carrying motorcycles is loss making for SpeedFerries due to
the above mentioned problems and due to a vast number of huge claims for
damages. I ask for your understanding as the present concept is
unacceptable for our motorcycle customers as well as for the company and
I promise to revisit the options again as soon as possible.

Chief Executive Officer
*Alternative options*
SpeedFerries has prepared the following alternatives for your cancelled
motorcycle booking. Please select one of the below options by replying

ticket will be upgraded to a SuperTicket at no extra cost and

booking fee, but the price will remain the same – even if you book
the most expensive peak departures.

outbound journey takes place before 30 April, but the inbound
journey takes place after the 30 April you are able to receive a
refund for your inbound journey, but still travel as scheduled on
