  • Boxed bike?

  • Bikes go for €10 on some TGV & Intercité trains, advance reservation required: Some high-speed TGV trains & some Intercité trains have special bike spaces and will take bikes for a fee of €10 if you book a bike space in advance. This includes some TGV-Atlantique (Paris-Brittany, Paris-Bordeaux-Biarritz-Lourdes), all Paris-Limoges-Cahors-Toulouse & Paris-Vichy-Clermont Ferrand Intercités, some TGV-Nord (Paris-Lille), some TGV-Est (Paris-Reims-Strasbourg). There are a maximum of 4 bike spaces per train, on the routes and trains that offer this feature.

  • Sounds good thanks. As far as I can tell you need to box your bike up for the Eurostar (and bring your own box) and use a bag or box for the TGV to Girona?

  • Yep, I'm travelling all boxed up with my own. There are different (more straightforward) bike rules for 'international' TGVs. It must be boxed, but doesn't need booking or extra €, as far as I understand, the trains have extra luggage space, you just stick it in there.

    *Bringing your bicycle with you on international trains
    International TGV trains*
    Your bicycle must be folded or disassembled and stored in a bicycle bag no larger than 1.30 m x 0.90 m, then stored in a regular luggage area. Fully assembled bicycles are not allowed on international TGV trains.
