HOVERTRAVEL is celebrating more than 50 years of continuous operation by offering half-price travel on Tuesday.

Managing director of Hovertravel Neil Chapman said: ‘Fifty years is a fabulous achievement for any business and we want to celebrate with our customers 
by giving them 50 per cent off all 
travel to mark this extraordinary occasion.

The service is the longest-established hovercraft service in the world and the only scheduled passenger service in Europe, taking just under 10 minutes to cross the Solent.
