  • Hey Russ,

    Me and my mate had a sick time with you guys. Getting there and back was a massive highlight. Not only the most fun, but also the fastest, easiest, and cheapest way by far! Couldn't have picked a better option.

    We won't be taking the ferry any time soon.

  • Having used the Urban Truant IOW transfer for the 2012 IOW Festival I can recommend this to anyone going to the festival in 2013+ The service has proven itself to be the quickest and easiest way to get to and from the festival site - bringing us in within walking distance of the entrance and beating the queues and traffic problems - not to mention being great fun so we all had a blast - great value and a terrific service.

  • 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.

  • What can I say? It was brilliant journey in terms of convenience and fun thanks to the choppy seas. Will definitely use it again next time.
