LUGGAGE ALLOWANCES

New regulations apply after 1 January 2021

Read our Brexit page for more info about passport checks, customs regulations, visas and other changes.

Please find more details on our luggage allowance on this page. Make sure you haven’t packed more than you’re allowed to bring as you may be refused travel if you bring additional items with you.

On Eurostar there’s no weight limit for your luggage, but you should be able to carry and lift your bags safely. Each bag can be up to 85cm long at its widest point

There's no restriction on liquids so you can take your favourite toiletries or even bring back some Parisian perfume. We do have some restrictions on alcohol and you can find these here.

Luggage allowances by ticket type

Adults

If you’re travelling with an adult ticket, you can take:

  • 2 pieces of luggage (up to 85cm long) including rucksacks, bags, suitcases or ski equipment
  • 1 small piece of hand luggage, e.g. handbag, laptop bag or briefcase

Pushchairs and prams travel for free in addition to your individual allowance. You’ll just need to fold your pram and store it in the luggage rack above your seat.

Business Premier

If you’re travelling with a Business Premier ticket, you can take:

  • 3 pieces of luggage (up to 85cm long) including rucksacks, bags, suitcases or ski equipment
  • 1 small piece of hand luggage, e.g. handbag, laptop bag or briefcase

Child luggage allowance

Kids travelling on a children’s ticket can take:

  • 1 piece of luggage (up to 85cm long)
  • 1 piece of hand luggage

Extra luggage

If you’d like to take more than the standard luggage allowance with you, or items over 85cm long, you’ll need to use EuroDespatch, our registered luggage service. We can send items to or from London, Paris, Lille and Brussels. The maximum size for registered luggage is 2m long.

Can I send it on ahead of me?

You can send your luggage up to a week before you travel, then collect it when you arrive. We’ll keep it at the luggage office at your destination for 14 days.

Unfortunately, we can’t accept any registered items, or those over 85cm long, to or from Ashford, Ebbsfleet, Calais, Disneyland® Paris, Lyon, Avignon, Marseille, Rotterdam, Amsterdam or any of our ski destinations.
