Can I take my Dog on the train from Barcelona to Paris?

I would like to travel from Barcelona to Paris by train with my dog. She weighs about 11 kilos. Is she allowed on with me and if so do you know how the fares for her work?

    Hi Lori,

    The direct train from Barcelona to Paris is a France-Spain High Speed train. On these trains, dogs can be taken on board in a carrier; however, the carrier would need to have a maximum weight of 10kg and a maximum size of 45x30x25 cm.

    While the rules state that only dogs under 10 kg are allowed to be taken on board, there is no way to know if they would actively enforce this policy locally. I would have to suspect that you would not have any issue traveling with your 11 kg dog in a carrier on one of these trains.

    You would also have to purchase a special ticket for your dog locally at the station before boarding. Since the dog ticket is one that is assessed locally, we would not have any information about how much it would be.

    You would purchase your own ticket from Barcelona to Paris by doing a search for the route under 'Find Train Tickets' on the homepage of our website, www.raileurope.com.
