Lucketts Travel has expanded its potential market by forming a new partnership with Isle of Wight ferry service Hovertravel.

As part of the deal coaches will stop at the Hovertravel Terminal on Clarence Esplanade in Southsea, allowing passengers to transfer from hovercraft to coach with ease. Hovertravel will also act as an agent for the entire range of Lucketts Travel holidays and day trips. To celebrate the agreement Hovertravel is offering a 20% discount on crossings when purchased with a Lucketts Travel booking.

Director Ian Luckett said: “We’re always looking at ways to make it easier for people to enjoy an excursion or short break. Teaming up with Hovertravel makes sense for both companies, allowing customers to book ferry and coach tickets in one place. The deal opens up a world of travel opportunities for people living on the Island, and hopefully will allow us to expand our business too.”

Loretta Lale, Marketing Manager of Hovertravel, said: “Hovertravel has a great reputation for creating strong partnerships with other travel suppliers. This deal with Lucketts enables us to develop better onward travel experiences for our local customers.”
