Many European trains have bike spaces on board. Or, if it can be folded up and placed in a bike bag, you can simply carry it on as a normal item of luggage.
See our European routes and trains sections for any specific restrictions or rules around bikes on individual train services.
Bicycle spaces need to be booked at the same time as you book your seat. To make your booking, phone the Rail Europe call centre or visit our London Travel Centre as bike spaces can’t be booked online.
In many cases, it may be easier to simply hire a bike at your destination. Many major cities have convenient bike rental schemes where you can pick up and deposit a bike at various points across the city. And there are always numerous private operators to choose from as well.
