Try Before You Fly Events

Following the success of these events in previous years, Hovertravel is organising another ‘try before you fly’ date. We are opening our terminals and hovercraft to people who want to understand our specific journey experience without having to commit to travelling.


These events are free to attend and as well as showcasing our service, provide invaluable learning opportunities for our HoverCare team. We aim to answer all your questions and capture any feedback from each day.

9th October Time
Ryde Terminal  10:00 - 11:30
Southsea  Terminal  11:45 - 12:30

As well as discovering how easy it is to use our hovercraft for travel between Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight, all visitors will be given a free ticket for two people and be issued with a HoverCare card.

To help us manage the day and ensure the best experience for all our customers, we are asking for visitors to pre-register below
