  • This is F***ing Awesome!
    Thanks man.

    Ronan Keating - Boyzone - IOW Festival 2012 & 2013

  • Really good service, enjoyable but wet crossing, fitted in brilliantly with my work commitments, would book again like a shot. But may miss next year as the festival itself was a washout - we ended up leaving early and it may be a while before we pluck up the courage to brave the mud.
    Best of luck with the venture.

    Martin Bush - IOW Festival 2012

  • Dear Urban Truant,
    That’s three years on the bounce you have managed to get my family and I to and from the festival without a hitch and not a queue in sight.

    See you next year and thanks again.

  • Hello Russ
    It was so cool to travel to my first festival with Urban Truant. I loved the thrill of the ride and my Mum appreciated not having to queue for hours too. We were really well looked after and felt in good hands.
