Luggage on the coach

Travelling by coach is a means of transport which allows you to bring a fairly large quantity of luggage on board for free. However, there are some restrictions, which is also related to the fact that there is a limited amount of space on a coach. Knowing the general rules of regulation about different coach companies will help you avoid unnecessary issues before departure and allows you to enjoy a pleasant and hassle-free coach journey. CheckMyBus will give you some useful tips here.

What Kind of Luggage can I Bring?

If you travel by coach quite regularly, you’ve probably noticed that one great advantage the intercity bus offers over other modes of transportation is the enormous capacity for luggage that you are allowed to take on board for free. Nevertheless – as holds true for airlines – the maximum luggage size, weight and even what is allowed to be carried in your luggage differs amongst the UK’s bus providers. There are also strict rules about special items, such as musical instruments and sports equipment. Hence it’s always good to know the basics beforehand in order to avoid hassle. A good idea is to inform the respective bus provider beforehand if you’re planning on bringing a surfboard, bicycle or wheelchair – this ensures that there’s enough space on the coach and that your luggage is not refused.

For instance, you can send them an e-mail with your exact travel details and the item you’d like to take on board. This is also how you can ensure that there’s enough space on the bus.

    1. I am travelling by National Express from Port Talbot to Heathrow airport.
      1. I have two luggages, one may be a little oversized, but both of these are weighing around 20 Kg each. Do I need to pay extra ?
      2. I have one extra luggage of 20 Kg. How much I have to pay ? Can I pay while boarding the bus ? Shall I get the money receipt for the extra payment ?

      1. Hi Ray,

        You’re allowed to take with you 2 medium cases of 70cm x 45 cm x 30 cm each with a max. weight of 20kg. each or 1 large case of 75cm x 50cm x 32cm with also a max. weight of 20kg. So as long as you don’t overpass this measurements by too much or just stick to them, you should be on the safe side. If you have one extra luggage you’ll have to pay £10 extra, you can purchase this directly from your driver on the day of travel but please note that this is subject to availability or you can also do it from any of their ticket offices.

      1. Dear Drishti,

        Thank you for your message. Different bus providers have different policies regarding the amount of luggage you can bring on your trip. For example, megabus allows once piece of luggage per passenger reservation which cannot exceed 62 inches or weigh more than 50 pounds. With National Express, you can bring two pieces of luggage 20 kg each and one carry-on. For any extra luggage, you’re likely to need to pay an extra fee and should contact the company you plan to travel with prior to your trip so they can accommodate the extra luggage and make sure there’s enough room.

      1. Dear Jason,

        Thank you for your message. You can generally bring your bicycle with most bus providers, such as National Express and megabus, however you generally need to disassemble the bike and carry it as extra luggage. With National Express, if your bicycle can fold in half by means of a special link in the main frame and is carried in a padded bag or hard case, it can be brought. This is a similar case with megabus, where normal adult bicycles are unlikely to meet the luggage requirements however folding bikes and children’s bicycles. Generally, we suggest contacting the bus provider you’d like to travel with to make sure you can bring your bike.

    9. My airline allows 2 pcs baggage for checkin with each bag limits to 23 kg. Apart from this, they also allow hand baggage. I wanted to travel from Reading to Heathrow using railair services. Will they allow the luggage also which is allowed by airline?

      1. Dear Mitesh,

        With rail air, the luggage you carry should not exceed normal airline allowances. Any item that cannot be lifted easily in and out of the coach’s under-floor compartment by the member of staff may be refused on grounds of safety.

      1. Dear Ana,

        Thank you for your message. Whether or not you can pay an extra for the weight depends on the bus company you plan to travel with. Many allow customers to do just that, however some companies may be stricter due to there being limited space on the coach. We suggest directly contacting the coach provider you plan to travel with to let them know that you are planning on bringing a larger suitcase so that you can get confirmation if that’s allowed and also let the bus driver know prior to your departure.

      1. Hello Ling,

        Thank you for your message. The luggage policy depends on which company you’ve booked your trip with. Your backpack may still be considered hand luggage, in which case you would likely have to pay a small fee depending on its size. This price would vary from carrier to carrier. For example, National express charges £10/item for a one-way trip and £15/item for a round trip. If you book online, however, these prices are reduced. Should you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us again.

      1. Hey Raymond,

        on National Express coaches you are allowed to take two pieces of luggage (in addition to hand-luggage) when both items are less than 20 kg. This means that you should be perfectly fine on your trip.

      1. Hey Amanda,

        on National Express coaches you are allowed two items of luggage (maximum size H 70cm x W 30cm x D 45cm), which have to weigh less than 20kg. National Express is not obliged to transport oversized items such as your guitar. However, the coach company will allow you to take it with you if there is enough space. However, an additional fee of £10 will be charged. In order to guarantee for enough space, we recommend you be at the coach station as early as possible. Another option would be to contact National Express directly and to ask whether it’s possible to reserve space for your luggage.

        the coach company National Express allows you to take one larger suitcase under 20 kg for free. Since your luggage is heavier, you might be asked to pay an additional fee of £10.

    20. Dear Dee, instead of 2 medium rucksacks can I take one large one. Also with the overhead luggage racks on national express coaches are the same size as train companies?

      1. Dear Laura,

        if you have one larger rucksack, you might be asked to pay an extra fee of £10 (one-way) or £15 (return). This is true for pieces of luggage which are considerably heavier than 20 kg. Also please be aware that the transportation of overweight or oversized luggage is only possible if space permits and that priority is given to customers travelling with luggage that is within the free limits.

        The overhead luggage rack on National Express coaches is comparable in size to that on standard trains.

    21. I’m going to Heathrow airport terminal 4 and have luggages…2 weighing more than 20kg each and a 3rd box weighing less than 12kg. What suggestions can you give for coaches

      1. Dear Dee,

        from where do you want to travel to Heathrow airport? There’s different bus operators providing services to and from Heathrow and they have different luggage policies. On National Express, for instance, you are allowed to take two pieces of luggage (in addition to hand luggage), which are not allowed to exceed a maximum weight of 20 kg. Overweight luggage is usually charged £10 for a one-way trip and £15 on return journeys. All in all, you are allowed to take three items, which can be oversized or overweight, so that taking all of your luggage should not be a problem, but additional fees for the two overweight items will most likely be charged.

      Is there a way to ensure I can bring it onboard? It fits overhead on all train/plane journeys I have made in the past.

      1. Dear Christine,

        the Eurolines Terms and Conditions state that you are allowed to take a smaller piece of hand luggage with you as long as it fits in the overhead departments. However, since services on individual connections can vary, we recommend you contact the coach company directly under +44 (0)8717 818177 or via the contact form on their website.

    23. I am planning to travel by National Express / Eurolines from Birmingham UK to Budapest, Hungary. I wish to take the maximum luggage allowed, including paying extra for any luggage in excess of the free allowance.

      I believe Eurolines are stricter thanNational Express on luggage.

      Can you please confirm the maximum luggage I can take on the journey from Birmingham to Budapest, including the number of bags and maximum dimensions and weight of each bag?

      (I will have less luggage on the return journey so returning should not pose any luggage problem).

      Thank you,

      Peter Burns.

      1. Dear Peter,

        on Eurolines journeys you are allowed to take two medium-sized bags, weighing no more than 20kg each, for free. Also, one peace of hand luggage is free of charge. If you want to take an additional bag or a larger item of luggage, you will be asked to pay £10 per item. Width, height and depth of the additional piece of luggage should not exceed 85cm. However, it is advisable to contact Eurolines prior to the journey and to inform them about any excess luggage. The reason for this is that Eurolines cannot guarantee that additional luggage can be taken on board as this depends on the space that is left on the coach.

        Since Eurolines and National Express cooperate on your selected route, the luggage allowance is the same.

      I have seen on the website that the 22nd of July at 11-15 pm – 5.45am, from Amsterdam Amstelstation to Hannover , it is possible to take dogs.
      How can I buy the ticket for my dog?
      The dog must go inside a case or it can go under the seat with me inside the bus? How does it work? Please, could you kindly provide me this information? Thank you.

      1. Dear Shama,

        Your selected route from Amsterdam to Hannover is operated by Eurolines Germany. Unfortunately, this bus provider does not allow the transport of pets on its national and international bus lines.

        In general, it is rarely possible to take dogs on board due to hygiene regulations unless these are assistance dogs accompanying visually impaired passengers.

    25. Tertiary student travelling from London to Bristol. I will have two pieces of luggage with me in addition to a backpack. Is this allowed free of charge or does a fee apply?

      1. Dear Talisa,

        I have just checked your route and currently, you can travel from London to Bristol with megabus, National Express or Eurolines UK – all three bus providers have different specifications on their baggage allowance:
        With megabus, you can take up to three small bags with a maximum total weight of 20 kg and the size of your luggage should not exceed 200 cm (width x height x length). National Express allows you to bring two medium-sized pieces of luggage, weighing 20 kg each. Eurolines UK also limits the luggage to two medium-sized pieces, but with a total weight of 30 kg.

        Additionally, you can always take one small hand-luggage, which has to be stored either beneath your seat or in the overhead rack.

    26. Hello,

      I have a group of 8 that need to go from the Pier in Basel to Zurich. They will have luggage. What is the most cost effective and reliable way to transport them by bus?

      1. Dear Daniel,

        unfortunately there is no direct bus connection from Basel to Zurich. However, you can use the bus operated by MeinFernbus which departs in the nearby German city Lörrach. Prices for this connection start at 8 Euros. Regarding luggage every passenger is allowed one small piece of hand luggage and two larger pieces of baggage with a maximum size of 67x50x27 cm. This service is free of charge.
