A new discount scheme has been launched by Hovertravel for all NHS and primary care workers commuting across the Solent.

It’s part of Hovertravel’s HoverCare initiative, which promotes better access for all.

Head of Commercial at Hovertravel, Loretta Lale, said:

“We have listened to the local community about the requirement for discounted ticket prices for NHS workers.

“We want to ensure Hovertravel is the first choice of travel for NHS staff who need to travel to and from the Isle of Wight at short notice, and also to assist the NHS Trust with its recruitment drive.”

As well as a 20% reduction on the standard day return price, there are also discounts for NHS staff who wish to buy travel cards.

Proof of NHS employment must be shown at the time of purchase and all customers will be given a HoverCare card which can be shown when requested in the terminals.
