  • 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.

  • The service was fantastic turning the trip across to the island (and back) one of the highlights of the weekend.

    It was easy to park and so we had no worries arriving and leaving at either end.

    We didn’t get stuck crossing despite the bad weather.

    The crossing was fun.

    You were flexible (we switched to a later time).

    All in all great and would definitely use u again....
