HoverCare Card

Our HoverCare card is available for use so customers can receive any extra assistance they may need without even having to ask. It lets our staff know about any special requirements customer may have with their journey.

Customers may request a HoverCare card which will indicate whether they require help with luggage, are a lip reader, whether they need to be seated, or would like help boarding the hovercraft. The HoverCare card can also, if the customer wishes, show that the holder has reduced mobility, autism, dementia, reduced vision or impaired hearing.

To Apply:

Simply come into our terminal with your NHS number/Letter/Id and we'll set up your card.
