Hovertravel - Pet Booking Information
As you are travelling within the UK, Pets do NOT require a Pet Passport.
You can take your pet on your Hovertravel crossing free of charge. You can add your pet to your booking online. Simply select the route you want and add the number of pets you will be travelling with.
Pets must be carried in RSPCA approved pet carriers or restrained by a harness/collar and lead whilst on board. They must be kept on the floor in the passenger area - not on the passenger seats. Owners are also requested to please ensure that their pet does not cause a nuisance to other passengers.
Customers are advised to allow sufficient time to exercise their pet before boarding the hovercraft.
