TRAVELLING WITH YOUR BICYCLE
Because there’s nothing like exploring on two wheels
Whether you want to tackle the cobbled streets of France and Belgium or take a more leisurely European route, travelling with a bicycle is the perfect way to hit the ground running as soon as you reach the port. And best of all, it couldn’t be simpler. Here’s everything you need to know before boarding the ferry.
TAKING BICYCLES ON YOUR VEHICLE
You can travel with bicycles attached to your vehicle. You just need to include any attached racks or boxes in the height and length of your vehicle when booking.
Ensure that everything is securely fastened before boarding. You may want to consider buying a rack that attaches to the back of your vehicle.
Your bicycle counts as a vehicle and needs to be booked in advance before it can be taken on board. Only one bicycle is allowed per booking.
You can take your bicycle on board any P&O Ferry route except Liverpool-Dublin.
BEFORE YOU TRAVEL
Check local laws and make a note of places to stop on your route in case of injury. Consider letting your accommodation know when you plan to arrive and leave an emergency contact number.
BE SURE TO PACK
Reflective clothing, a puncture repair kit and a portable phone charger. Check local cycling laws carefully, as you could get fined for something that is legal in the UK.
BOARDING THE FERRY
Passengers travelling with bicycles should check in at the same time as foot passengers. You must place your bicycle below deck yourself, following vehicles up the ramp on foot.
There is no need to pack up your bicycle before travel. All bicycles are stored on the vehicle decks.
