Can I bring a bicycle on my rail and sail journey?

You cannot book a bicycle as part of the Dutchflyer Rail and Sail service. If you wish to travel with a bicycle via rail and on the Harwich - Hook of Holland route you must book your rail travel directly with the rail company and book your ferry travel separately. On other routes you are advised to check with the relevant railway operator that your bicycle can be carried on the train. 

 

When travelling to/from London there are restrictions for non-folding bikes on peak rail services for the comfort and safety of all passengers. Only folded bikes can be accommodated during busy times. This applies to the following Stratford and London Liverpool Street station services:

 

These restrictions apply Monday to Friday, except Bank Holidays.
