St Agnes Boating App - St. Agnes
Why not download St. Agnes Boating's brand new app? At the touch of a few buttons, you can book your transfer to the island, plan your island-hopping holiday trips, and sign up to our special discounted weekly passes for all the family.
Scillonian boating company St. Agnes Boating has launched a new app for visitors to the islands and the residents of St. Agnes seeking to view all its boating services, and to book and pay for their boating tickets via their smartphones. It is the first local boating app to be launched in the southwest of England, and represents a significant innovation for the regional marine industry.
Downloadable on both Android and Apple devices, the St. Agnes Boating app enables users to pre-book and pre-pay for all their boating needs – both scheduled services and “taxi” services - up to two months in advance (and soon to be year-round). The whole process is quick and easy to use, and is greener too, with no requirement for paper tickets and no more trawling of boating schedules,week by week or even day by day.
The “taxi” boating options are particularly useful, as passengers can view, via the app, every taxi trip that’s been requested so that they can opt to “share” the same taxi and hence lower the unit cost of the booking.
“This is ground-breaking for the islands as it is the first time anyone visiting the Isles of Scilly or living here will have, at their fingertips via their mobile, the exact departure times for all our boating services at any time of the year. Everything yo need - from getting to and from St Agnes or planning your island hopping trips, to purchasing your daily tickets and weekly passes - can be done directly via the St Agnes Boating app or our website,” says John Peacock, owner and skipper at St. Agnes Boating. “Already, with more than 50% of our payments now taken online or by card, and many visitors wishing to plan ahead for their holidays, we see the launch of our App as a natural digital extension to our customers offer.”
