These bikes must be stored in a bag to comply with Eurostar’s baggage allowance criteria.  If you need to send your bike ahead of you while travelling with Eurostar, you can book our reliable shipping services.

For sports equipment or musical instruments, Eurostar’s policy varies depending on the specific item. Musical instruments smaller than 85cm long can travel as part of your luggage allowance. Musical instruments up to 136cm can be sent through Eurostar’s luggage service. If your musical instrument or items don’t fit Eurostar’s policy or require urgent shipping to your travel destination, trust our official partners, First Luggage, for secure and efficient delivery.
