Luggage on Eurostar


Whether you’re off to a concert or just taking your guitar on your travels,
here’s everything you need to know.

Sorry, we’re no longer able to relaunch our bike service this summer. This is due to security and customs issues which are out of our control. Our teams are still working toward a relaunch and hope to have better news in September. 


Musical instruments

Guitars, violins and other small instruments
Musical instruments smaller than 85 cm long and guitars can travel with you as part of your luggage allowance. Guitars must be in a case.

Cellos and other medium sized instruments
If your instrument is between 85cm and 136cm long and in a case, you can call our contact centre to book your journey and an accompanying ticket for your instrument (subject to availability) so it can travel on the seat beside you. Or you can book a courier service to take it onto your destination.

Our contact centre is open from 08:00 to 17:00 Monday to Friday and closed at weekends. Our phone lines are closed during UK bank holidays.

Harps, double basses and other large instruments
If your instrument is longer than 136 cm, you'll need to send it by courier, as you won't be able to travel with it.
