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 www.oui.sncf
- Access the page “Book a train ticket
- 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 TER trains, your bike travels free, suspended or positioned in the area specifically for this purpose. These positions are accessible subject to space and cannot be reserved in advance.
If you are travelling as a group, call ahead to be sure you can access the train.
TER Bretagne contact: 0 800 880 562 – Free service and phone call from Monday to Friday, 6:15am to 8pm, Saturday from 9am to 4pm and Sunday and holidays from 1pm to 8pm.
