Hovertravel - Isle of Wight Ferry



For seven days each week, Hovertravel operates an average of 450 crossings with two hovercraft. The frequency of service increases at commuter times in the morning and in the evening, with fewer crossings available in the middle of the day. Connections to onward travel on the mainland are made very easy with the HoverBus service which takes customers to the attractions and shopping centres in Portsmouth city centre and to the rail stations.  


Hovertravel’s smartphone app, which tracks the craft, and shows the location of the Hoverbus, has also added push notification functionality for customers, giving them real-time insight on the status of the service This is an efficient way for customers to keep up to date with their Hovertravel journey. The App also gives customers the opportunity to see the latest special offers, find out more about the bus and rail connections available from the Isle of Wight and Portsmouth, check fares and provides the contact information for Hovertravel. As bookings are made increasingly online, Hovertravel continues to build a highly engaged community across several social media networks.
