Baggage & Luggage Allowance

Baggage Allowance


With Greyhound Australia’s generous baggage allowance, you can bring more with you and leave less behind!

How much luggage can I bring with me?

You can bring two pieces of checked baggage weighing a maximum of 20kg each (44lb). You’re also entitled to bring one additional piece of carry-on luggage on the bus, at a maximum of 8kg (17.6lb).


Carry-on baggage

Checked baggage

✓ Bring onto the bus

✓ Stored under the bus

✓ One bag up to 8kg (17.6lb)

Can I bring more than two pieces of checked baggage?

Yes, but a charge will apply. You can bring one additional item for $10 or two additional items for $15, weighing a maximum of 20kg (44lb) each. After those additional two items, extra baggage will be charged at our standard freight rates.

Can I bring my bike / surfboard?

Yes! You can bring your bike or surfboard, subject to room. A charge of $15 per surfboard, surf-ski or sailboard and $49 per pushbike will apply. Surfboards, surf-skis and sailboards need to be packed well in damage-absorbent material, and can’t be any longer than 2m (6.6ft).

Can I bring a pram or a wheelchair?

Definitely! Prams and wheelchairs can be brought on board the bus free of charge, regardless of how much baggage you have.

Can I bring whatever I want?

No – some items are prohibited in your luggage when you travel with Greyhound. Prohibited items include:

Flammable Goods 



Dry Ice


Any Dangerous or Illegal Goods

Transporting fruit and vegetables between some states is also prohibited under state quarantine laws; it’s your responsibility to make sure you comply with these laws.

What should I do if I lose my luggage?

Any baggage that is left aboard a bus or in our terminal will be carried to a central point, where it will be stored for no more than three months. To reclaim your lost luggage, contact our friendly call centre on 1300 473 946.
