Travel Card Booking

After much demand and some extensive development work we’re now delighted to offer a booking facility to all Travelcard holders. The booking facility is available by simply calling Hovertravel and providing your Travelcard number.

Here’s how it works:

- Call Hovertravel with Travel Card Number and your card will be reduced by one trip per booking, at the time of the booking as long as there are sufficient journeys available. You will receive a booking confirmation sheet.
- When you travel at your booked time a further journey will not be taken from your card at the boarding gate – you will need to show your card and the booking confirmation sheet in order to travel.
- If you cancel your trip before you board, by calling Hovertravel to cancel, the journey will go back onto your card.
- If you arrive to travel up to 2 hours either side of your booked time the system will transfer your original booking to your travel time and not create a new booking.
- However if you arrive to travel over 2 hours before or after your booked time, the system will create a new booking and both the booked and actual journey will be taken from your card (2 journeys).

We hope you will find the new booking facility useful.
