Can I travel by train with my bike? Is it free? Do I need to book?
Depending on the types of train (TGV, OuiGo, TER), the conditions for travelling with a bike vary:
by TGV high-speed train
Dismantled and transported in a specific cover with maximum dimensions of 120 x 90 cm, your bike is considered as hand luggage. You can therefore take it with you free of charge and without booking.
Not dismantled, your bike can be transported in specific places on some TGV lines. This service is charged (10 €) and only available by booking on sncf-connect.com
- Enter your journey
- Select the section: “Add a bike”
Dismantled bikes stored in a cover can be transported on OUIGO trains. You need to subscribe to the “additional luggage” option when buying your ticket. This option will cost €5 at the time of purchase, or €10 if you decide to add it later.
by TER regional train
On these trains, the bike zone will be identifiable with “Service TER BreizhGo + vélo” stickers and by agents dedicated to managing bicycles. More information
