How much hand luggage am I allowed to bring on board?

As a passenger or bicyclist, you can bring a maximum of 30 kilos of hand luggage. This is as much as you can carry at one time through the ticket checkpoint. Hand luggage is understood to be:

  • Suitcases
  • Bags
  • Duffle bags
  • Rucksacks

Other items (such as crates, tools, and suchlike) are not considered to be hand luggage.

Baggage service
After passing through the ticket checkpoint, you may place your hand luggage in the baggage cars. Once you have arrived on Ameland, you can retrieve your hand luggage at the exit of the premises. This baggage service is free of charge. Please note: baggage space is limited and cannot be reserved.

More than 30 kilos of hand luggage?
If you want to bring more than 30 kilos of hand luggage or transport other goods, you have to use a transport company. You can contact Ridder & de Vries Transporten on +31 (0)519 554366.
