LUGGAGE ALLOWANCES

On Eurostar there’s no weight limit for your luggage, but you should be able 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 pack a bottle of bubbly for the train, or bring back some Parisian perfume or a bottle or two from a château-hopping trip. 

Luggage allowances by ticket type

Adult

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.

  • 3 pieces of luggage (up to 85cm long) including rucksacks, bags, suitcases or ski equipment

Children

Kids travelling on a children’s ticket can take:

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

 

Children under 4 travel free with Eurostar, so they don’t need a ticket . They have no luggage allowance and they’ll need to sit on a grown-up’s lap as they have no allocated seat.

Need help with your luggage?

If you’re travelling alone with little ones, simply ask one of our team at the station and we’ll do our best to help you get everything from check-in to the train. Just bear in mind that we may have to help people with reduced mobility first.

If you’ll need help at your destination too, please let us know before you board.

Extra luggage

If your bags are over 85cm long or you want to take more than your allowance, you’ll need to use EuroDespatch, our registered luggage service. You can send items up to 2m long from London, Paris, Lille and Brussels. 

Exceptions to the rule

  • Golf bags up to 120 x 35 x 35cm count as part of your luggage allowance
  • Skis or a snowboard are included on top of your normal two-bag allowance on the direct ski train

 

Can I send my luggage on ahead of me?

Yes, 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 in Paris, Lille, Brussels or London for 14 days.

Is the registered luggage service available at all Eurostar stations?

No, 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.
