Isle of Wight Hassle Free passenger day trips

Bicycles are carried free of charge on Red Funnel's vehicle ferry service between Southampton and East Cowes.

Unfortunately due to the design of the vessels, cycles cannot be carried on the Red Jet Hi-Speed service unless they are of the folding type and carried in a purpose designed bag.

There are dedicated cycle stands areas along Town Quay near the entrance to Red Funnel's Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 in Southampton. At Red Funnel's East and West Cowes terminals there are areas suitable for securing cycles - please ask local staff for details.
