Your rights

European regulations do not specifically govern the carriage of pets, with the exception of guide and assistance dogs.


Our advice

Prior to leave, check the conditions for transporting pets for each railway company and type of train you will be using.


For dogs, the rules will vary from carrier to carrier and according to the size of the dog. Dogs often require their own ticket at a special rate. Please note that you may need a separate ticket for each train journey.


Cats and other pets (rabbits, ferrets, etc.) generally have to travel in a crate. Ask the carrier if you need to buy a ticket for your pet.
