Hovertravel, the fastest way to travel between the Isle of Wight and Portsmouth, has improved its School Academic Year Season card and opened it up to adults. The card gives customers unlimited travel between 01 September and 31 July, including the Christmas and Easter holidays.
Neil Chapman, managing director at Hovertravel, said: “An increasing proportion of our commuter travellers are school children and teachers, therefore it is important to us that our season ticket accommodates their needs.
“We have improved the academic season card because after speaking with parents and teachers, we have discovered that the card should be made available to adults as well as children, the school holidays should not be excluded and monthly direct debits are preferred.”
The adult card costs £1080 for those paying by cash or £1100 if a monthly direct debit is set up. The child card is £705 in cash or £720 for direct debit. Six and 12 month season cards are no longer available for children.
