Services are running with a delay of up to 15 minutes.

We want you to have the best possible experience when you travel with us and your safety will always be our top priority for your complete journey; from arrival through to disembarkation. The Government has lifted the Plan B restrictions while making some suggestions about how individuals can take responsibility for their own health and hygiene.


One of these suggestions is that you continue to wear a face covering in crowded and enclosed spaces where you may come into contact with other people you do not normally meet. At Hovertravel we will respect our customers’ individual decisions regarding these suggestions and passengers should be prepared to see some fellow travellers wearing face coverings alongside others who are not.



We understand that your travel plans might change, even at the last minute, and our  HoverFlexibility policy gives you the confidence to book now and change your dates and times later, if needed.


We are also able to offer an alternative travel option, in those rare instances when our services are cancelled, through our ticket acceptance agreement with other ferry operators.

If you are travelling by train, you can secure your seat on your chosen flight by either filling out a short form, 48 hours before travel,  or plan to arrive at our terminal at least 15 minutes before your preferred flight’s departure time.

If we can provide extra help or if you feel uncomfortable at any time during your journey please speak to a member of our team.
