Passengers are allowed to take two large bags and one small bag on trains. Unless you have booked assistance you need to be able to carry your own luggage – so don’t take too much or you might be refused.

If you do have a lot of luggage it may be easier to get it delivered via Carry My Luggage who offer a door-to-door service. Students can get a 15% discount.

Larger bulkier items such as skis are subject to an extra charge. Read about taking your bike on the train.
