Visitor Information

Reduced ferry Fares

If you are coming for the day, Wightlink and Red Funnel discount vouchers may be available at certain times of the year, so please contact us before you book your journey.

On the day of travel, you must have a physical discount voucher with you, which we can send to you if you let us know your requirements, and provide a postal address in good time.

Wightlink do not currently have any suitable discounts for Island visitors without an inclusive travel/accommodation package.

The Hovercraft is for passengers only and travels from Southsea to Ryde Esplanade. Club members are usually able to meet the Hovercraft and bring visitors to the Club for matches when required.
