Travelling to Lyon, Avignon or Marseille?

You can use First Luggage, our door to door luggage partner. They’ll collect your bikes (and bags, and whatever else you’d like to take) from home and have them waiting for you at your destination when you arrive. And, since you’re travelling with us, you’ll get exclusive discounts – just ask First Luggage for details.

Onward connections

These requirements only apply to Eurostar so, if your trip involves a connecting train with another train company, it’s best to check with them before you book.

Travelling with your bike in summer?

With le Tour de France, summer is one of the busiest times in the Eurostar calendar. So, to make sure that your bike travels on the same train as you during that time, you'll need to book a space for it with our registered luggage service.

If you'd prefer not to pre-book, just keep in mind that we can't guarantee when your bike will arrive at your destination, because we'll have to wait for a train that has enough space for it.
