hovertravelbluecardHovertravel, the fastest Isle of Wight passenger service across the Solent, has launched its annual Escape the Bestival £5 fare for Island residents.

Between Friday 11th September and Sunday 13th September only, day return tickets from Ryde to Southsea will be available at a discounted price of £5 for adults/children/seniors.  These special fares can only be booked online.

As during previous festival periods, Hovertravel will operate their highly effective priority boarding system which will fast-track commuters and regular Island customers, including  NHS patients, onto the hovercraft, essentially allowing these customers to automatically jump to the front of any queue.

Loretta Lale, Commercial and Marketing manager at Hovertravel, explains:

“Hovertravel has made a commitment to give island customers access to standard price fares and to provide some special offers during the festival weekends. By creating an exclusive Blue Card web-only booking fare, we can offer a fabulous deal targeted to those customers who may not wish to go to the event”.

Full terms and conditions, along with the promo code, have been emailed to all Hovertravel Blue Card holders.
