Try Before You Fly Events

During these events we open our terminals and hovercraft to people who want to understand our journey experience without having to commit to travelling.

These free events are an excellent opportunity for anyone who thinks they might need a little extra assistance with their journey and to ask us what we can do to make Hovertravel more accessible.

We also want to learn from the attendees on the day and hear about their experience of travelling with us or why they might not have considered using our services. We aim to answer all your questions and capture any feedback from each day.

Our future Try Before You Fly are as follows:

  • Saturday 16th March for NHS patients, hospital visitors
  • Spring 2024 (date TBC) for specialist schools
  • Saturday 14th September – (theme TBC)

This page will be updated as other events and themes are confirmed.
