During the spring and summer months - March through to September - we operate a daily baggage transfer service along the South Downs Way.
Your bags and cycle gear are moved between hotels, inns, B&Bs and hostels leaving you to enjoy each day without a heavy pack or cycle panniers.
By arranging all your baggage transfers with us rather than booking individual taxi transfers each day:
- You benefit from huge cost savings
- We take all the hassle out of organising the transfers
- You have peace of mind knowing that a local specialist company is managing the whole service
Prices are for distances of 25 trail miles or less, i.e. walkers. For cyclists and groups of 3 or more please tell us your plans and we will provide a quotation.
Please note that our bag transfer service is only available to customers booking one of our walking or cycling holidays or using our group transport services.
If you need luggage transfers only we recommend the specialist bag transfer company South Downs Discovery.
Walk & Cycle offers a unique transfer service. We collect passengers, luggage and bicycles from Winchester and Eastbourne and transport them along the South Downs Way. The service can be booked in one of two ways:
You book and pay for the transfers in advance. The bus departs Winchester and Eastbourne at the stated time. There may be other passengers in the vehicle as the service will be advertised to the general public.
You book and pay for the group transfers plus one other service, e.g. bag transfers or cycle hire, or you book one of our holidays.
In both cases, prices are charged per person with a small additional charge for each bicycle and item of luggage. For prices and availability of service, seats and bicycle places on our trailers please contact us.
Please note that if you are booking transport only, it will be provided as a bus service that is open to the general public. Departure times will be fixed and drop off points will be along the South Downs Way only.
If you need transport to other destinations and you are not booking one of our holidays or a second service, bag transfers or cycle hire for example, then you need private vehicle hire. For journeys starting in Eastbourne we recommend the taxi operator Sussex Cars.
