Questions and answers

Where do I find notifications about departures?

  • On our website you will see current notifications in the bar at the top of the screen. Via notifications we inform you about details such as dropouts or delays.
  • You can read the same information in the terminals and on our ships on Wagenborg TV.
  • In the terminals you will see screens that show the next departures from that location. If your departure is delayed, you will see this immediately on these screens.
  • We use the departure overview on our website to communicate the expected departure time in the case of a delay.

Luggage

On our ferries, you can take a maximum of 30 kg of hand luggage with you. This is the maximum you can carry through the control gates in one passing. By "hand luggage", we mean the following:

  • Suitcases
  • Bags
  • Duffel bags
  • Backpacks

Luggage, such as chests, tools, surfboards and the like are not considered hand luggage.

After check-in, please place your hand luggage in one of the baggage carts. The carts will await your arrival at the exit of our premises. This service is free. Please note that the luggage compartment is limited in space and that you cannot reserve space. 

If you have more than 30 kilograms of luggage or other goods, we advise you to hire a transport company.  Please contact  Ridder & de Vries Transporten or Visser Transport B.V.

What can I bring along on board of the Fast Ferry Service?

The Fast Ferries have limited room for luggage. For that reasons, different rules apply compared to the regular ferry. We only allow hand luggage on board the Fast Ferries; similar to the type of luggage you can take with you on board of an airplane.

Our luggage guidelines 

  • 2 pieces of hand luggage (max. approx. 55x35x25 cm), such as backpacks, small trolley cases, handbags or shoulder bags. The hand luggage cannot occupy a seat. Where possible, keep your luggage on your lap or store it under your seat.
  • You can bring a preferably foldable buggy/stroller (to transport a child), a wheelchair or walker on board of the Fast Ferry.

Want to bring larger pieces or more luggage?

Are you travelling with larger pieces or more luggage? We advise you to take the regular ferry or to contact Ridder & de Vries Transporten or Visser Transport B.V. If you decide to travel by ferry, you can use the (limited) luggage service provided.

Is a dog allowed on board of the Fast Ferry Service?

If the situation allows, you can bring your dog along on of board the Fast Ferry. You do need to buy a dog ticket for the ferry. It may however be the case that the captain decides your dog cannot travel on the Fast Ferry and asks/advises you to take the regular ferry.

Bicycles, carts, tricyles or mobility scooters
