Hovertravel supports World Sight Day
Hovertravel is supporting World Sight Day 2019 by hosting a Try Before You Fly event at its Southsea terminal designed specifically for those who are blind or partially sighted. This free event will run from 11am to 1230 on Thursday 10 October.
HoverCare Ambassador Andy Parnell explains: “In recognition of World Sight Day, we are inviting customers onboard our craft and to our terminals so they can better understand how easy it is to travel on a hovercraft with us.

Additionally, all visitors will be given a free ticket for two people and be issued with a HoverCare card. To help manage the day and ensure the best experience for all customers, visitors are asked to
