I’m concerned

Does travelling with a stroller exceed our baggage allowance on train from Lisbon to Faro?

Hi, from reading the comments about bringing strollers onboard the trains, I notice that they are allowed on the train as long as they are stored. My question is does the stroller count as a piece of luggage in our allowance? On the site I read that luggage allwances are 2 bags/luggage per passenger plus a little carry on bag. If I bring a stroller does that mean I will only be allowed 1 bag/luggage plus carry on? I will be travelling with husband and my 9 month old daughter from Lisbon Oriente to Faro. Thank you!!

    Hi Farana,

    Rest assured, you can bring the stroller. While a typical amount is "2 bags plus one carry-on", in actuality you can generally bring as much as you can carry.

    There is no checked luggage on trains from Lisbon to Faro. With the exception of the Eurostar (the train connecting London with France or the Benelux countries), there is no checked luggage on trains in Europe. However, trains do provide sufficient space to store luggage. There is space between seats or in the overhead racks. In many cases, there is also space at the ends of each train car. Luggage is the responsibility of the passengers.

    You would purchase tickets from Lisbon to Faro by searching the route under 'BOOK TRAIN TICKETS' on the homepage of our website, www.raileurope.com.

    It is also important to point out that the trains between Lisbon and Faro require reservations as a supplement to the ticket; however, the Portuguese national rail network has not enabled their trains to be reserved from anywhere outside the country. Reservations for trains in Portugal can only be purchased at the CP offices in the stations. The cost would only be a small cost in addition to the ticket. When you go to purchase your reservation, just be sure to mention that you already have the ticket.
