  • Used Urban Truant for iow festival 2018. Absolutely brilliant service, easy check in and relax with a beer while you wait for the RIB. Return Journey was exactly the same, check in and then get some breakfast while you wait. Organisation was spot on and the RIB crossing just added to the whole experience. Won't hesitate to book again, no queues and delivered pretty much to the door. Thanks Urban Truant.
