Checked baggage

Verify that your train offers a checked baggage service: A checked baggage service is available at some stations and on a certain number of trains. Before travelling, be sure to confirm that this service is offered on your train.

In stations where this service is offered, baggage must be checked at least 45 minutes before departure at terminal stations and 30 minutes at intermediate stations. Also, be sure to confirm at what time your station opens.

Trains without baggage cars: If your train does not have a baggage car, the checked baggage service will not be offered. You will therefore have to comply with the carry-on baggage policy.

*For security reasons, baggage is not allowed on board without its owner.

Alternatively, please refer to the Checked baggage section on our website.
