Luggage and Bicycles Policy

Please read the information below relating to the carriage of luggage and bicycles on our cross-Solent services.


Unfortunately due to limited luggage space we can only accept a maximum of two suitcases per person (no sails or sail boards) and 1 peice of hand luggage.

Larger quantities or bigger items can be carried on the Vehicle Ferry parcel service provided by our partners Acclaim.

Southampton < > East Cowes: we make no charge for the carriage of bicycles on this service and there is no need to pre-book. Cyclists just need to be in posession of a valid foot passenger ticket. Cyclists are boarded via the lower car deck (Deck E) and should check-in and wait in the designated area for further instructions.

Southampton < > West Cowes: Unfortunately due to limited space, only fold-up cycles in a cycle bag can be carried on the Red Jet service. There are cycle rack facilities at Terminal 2, Southampton and at the West Cowes terminal.
