Try Before You Fly Events

Following the success of these events earlier this year, Hovertravel is organising another ‘try before you fly’ date for autumn 2019. 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.


World Sight Day

In recognition of World Sight Day, the annual day of awareness to focus global attention on blindness and vision impairment, Hovertravel will be inviting customers onboard their craft and in their terminals so they can better understand how easy it is to travel with Hovertravel.

There will also be the opportunity meet our staff, crew and pilots, whilst being hosted by our HoverCare Ambassadors. Our teams have been trained in guided boarding and providing assistance for the partially sighted, so we are keen to exchange information on how we could continue to evolve our approach.

10th October
11:00 - 12:30
Southsea Terminal

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
