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.

Important: Due to current travel restrictions, we're unable to provide our usual EuroDespatch luggage service and our bike on board service. Please check latest info here.



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 85 cm and 136 cm long and in a case, you can't take it as regular luggage. You should either buy a companion ticket (subject to availability) so it can travel on the seat beside you, or contact a courier service to take it to your destination. You can book a companion ticket by contacting our contact centre.

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.
