There’s a limit on the size of checked baggage, to make sure we can fit everything into our baggage compartment. So checked baggage can’t be more than 62 inches (157 cm) when you add the dimensions together (length + width + height). Anything larger than this will need to go with our logistics or take a seat or two.
What kind of baggage can I bring?
It’s important to pack your belongings securely so they don’t get damaged or lost. We’ve put together a few simple guidelines for your checked baggage so that everything arrives in one piece:
We can provide shipping containers for a nominal fee at most Eagle Line stations (the amount you pay will depend on the type of container and the city you’re in).
We don’t charge for bringing a stroller on board an Eagle Line bus. You can bring a stroller in addition to your maximum checked baggage allowance to your carry-on baggage.
There are a few items that need a little extra care when it comes to packing them for your trip:
- Bicycles, golf clubs, skis and ski poles must be packed in a wood, canvas or other substantial containers, and securely fastened (you’ll need to pay an oversized item charge too).
- Fragile items need to be wrapped in bubble-wrap, packed in styrofoam (molded, pellets or sheets), or placed in cardboard containers with corrugated partitions. Please don’t pack fragile items in clothing, bedding or newspaper as baggage may move about while on the road.
What items can I bring onto the bus?
Before you travel with us, it’s a good idea to check what you can and can’t take onto an Eagle Line bus.
Here is an overview of what you can bring on board or in checked baggage.
Medications & special needs devices: Allowed on board and in checked baggage, but we recommend you keep your medication in your carry on baggage.
Food, drinks and accessories: Alcohol is not permitted at all – on board or in checked baggage. Snacks, drinks and plastic cutlery are ok on-board. Any glass containers or metal cutlery must be in checked baggage.
Sharp objects: Most aren’t allowed on board but can be packed in checked baggage. Check the full list for details.
Sporting goods: Not permitted on board but can be brought in checked baggage.
Guns, firearms, explosives and dangerous chemicals: Not allowed at all anywhere on the bus or in baggage.
Flammable items: Mostly not allowed, except for lighters and matches.
Tools: Not allowed on board, but can be in checked baggage.
Martial arts items: Not allowed on board or in checked baggage.
Hoverboards: Not allowed at all anywhere on the bus or in baggage.
Boarding the bus and help with baggage
Once you’ve got your issued baggage tag from the ticket counter, we can load your checked baggage onto the bus. Here are a few simple pointers to make the process even easier.
- Before you board, just give your checked baggage to the bus side baggage handler (or the driver in some cases) who will load it in the luggage compartment underneath the bus.
- It’s up to you to collect your baggage when you get off the bus.
- If you’re transferring from one bus to another, you need to collect your bags from the first bus and bring them to the next.
Need a hand?
If you need help with your baggage when you get on the bus, just let us know. We have special baggage handling available for customers that need extra help such as elderly passengers, customers with disabilities or those traveling with small children. You can ask an agent at the ticket counter to give you special handling tags so we know that you need some help.
Left Baggage Service
If you want to explore the city without lugging a big bag around with you, we can store your baggage for 24 hours at Eagle line stations. Leave it with us: All stored baggage needs to follow the same restrictions listed above and you’ll need to collect it within 24 hours. Ask a customer service agent for pricing details at your chosen location.
Lost or damaged baggage
We’ll do what we can to help reunite you with your stuff. And if we can’t find it, or it’s damaged, you may be eligible for compensation.
Eagle’s Line responsibility
If Eagle Line is responsible (or liable) for your baggage getting lost or damaged, you should be able to claim compensation. See how much you can claim, depending on your type of baggage and our limitations of liability:
Have a look at our dedicated page for lost and damaged baggage. We’ll tell you what you need to do to get your bags back, and fill out a claim.
You can apply for compensation if any of your baggage gets lost or damaged when you travel with us (see our Lost or damaged baggage page to find out more about this). But, if your stuff is more valuable than the amount of compensation you can claim, you might want to take out insurance to cover it.
Your carry-on baggage should be with you throughout your trip, so it’s up to you to keep it safe (this includes taking your belongings with you when you step off the bus for a rest break). Eagle Line can’t accept any responsibility for any carry-on baggage that gets lost or damaged.
If any of your checked baggage goes missing or is damaged while being stored in the baggage compartment under the bus, you can apply for compensation. You’ll need the baggage tag that was given to you when you checked your bag to process the claim.
We offer a maximum value of N10,000 per adult ticket and N5,000 per child ticket. If you have anything in your checked baggage that’s worth more than this amount, we can’t pay any more, unless you bought insurance. This doesn’t include baggage checked as overweight, oversized or excess baggage.
Oversized, overweight and excess baggage
If you want to make a claim on overweight, oversized or excess baggage, there’s a free value allowance of N10,000. If you have anything in your baggage that’s worth more than this amount, we can’t pay any more.
We don’t offer insurance for excess baggage. Instead, you can pay a declared baggage charge for your overweight, oversized or excess baggage. This means that in the event of claim, we will need to see proof of the value or depreciated value of the item or items you are claiming for.
Getting your baggage back
If we find your baggage, we can send it back to you as long as you live within our operating cities. If you live outside our operating cities, you’ll need to make your own arrangements for your baggage to be shipped to you.
Making a claim
If you want to make a claim for lost baggage, you’ll need to fill in a claim form and send it to us within 30 days of the date you arrived at your destination. You can fill out a claim form at any Eagle Line station.
Here are a few important things to know if you’re making a claim:

If your baggage is lost
We’ll do our best to find your lost baggage, and find it as fast as we can (you need those clean socks!). But if we haven’t found it within 15 days of receiving your form, we’ll treat it as a claim and get things moving. Don’t worry though, we won’t stop looking for your baggage. It just means we can start the claims process quicker. In any case, we’ll write to you to let you know what’s happening.
If your baggage is damaged or something’s missing
If we return your baggage to you and it’s damaged on the outside or inside, or something’s missing, you can submit a claim. You’ll need to do this in writing using our online form within 7 days of receiving your baggage. You’ll also need to give us an opportunity to inspect it before we process your claim.
