Half price hovercraft travel for dog owners in March
To demonstrate their dog-friendly approach, Hovertravel is dedicating a weekend in March to encouraging dog owners to try the fastest ferry across the Solent. All dogs always travel free on Hovertravel and for Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 March, adult dog owners can also benefit from half price Day Return tickets.
Hovertravel connects Southsea in Portsmouth with Ryde on the Isle of Wight in just ten minutes and dogs stay with their owners throughout the journey. Our current fleet are much quieter than our previous craft, so there is less noise to disturb dogs or their owners and water bowls are available in both our terminals.
Loretta Lale, Head of Commercial at Hovertravel, adds: “We welcome all well-behaved dogs on our hovercraft and we are using this weekend offer to show just how easy and simple Hovertravel is for dogs and their owners. The Isle of Wight has superb walking opportunities, from a straightforward stroll along the sand at Appley Beach to a strenuous scramble up Culver Down where the dog-friendly Culver Haven Inn even offers a free dog biscuit for all customers.”
Customers can only book this offer in Hovertravel’s terminals at Southsea and Ryde on the day of travel with a dog present.
