“We want to support children who need to travel to develop their talent, whether that talent is in sports, music or the arts. We appreciate that embryonic talent needs to be nurtured and have created some deeply discounted fares to help students pursue their passion.”

Hovertravel is asking prospective students to apply in writing to Hovertravel via email or post, indicating why they should be eligible for the discounted fares, and to include a letter/email with the logo and contact details of the establishment providing the coaching as proof of the student’s training.

Loretta adds:

“To kick start Hovertalent we are going to select 10 applicants to each receive a free 50 journey travel card and we will be announcing these names at the end of the month, so make sure we receive your application in the next couple of weeks.”
