HoverTravel named one of the best travel experiences in the world

Readers of UK newspaper The Guardian have submitted their tips for the best public transport rides in the world and Hovertravel is featured as the second tip.

Loretta Lale, Head of Commercial at Hovertravel, says: “We know from our customers that the love and affection for Hovertravel reaches around the world and we are very proud to be featured in a list of such iconic public transport rides. With a journey time of under ten minutes, we are certainly not a lengthy experience, but we do work hard to make every minute with us enjoyable.”

The tip from Guardian reader Matthew highlights the speed of the hovercraft and the exciting moment when the craft transitions from land to water, before skimming across the Solent at speeds of up 45 knots, just 1.5 metres above the waves.

There are nine other readers tips featured in the article, ranging from cable cars in Columbia to water buses in Venice – see the complete list here.
