Luggage Size Restrictions for my trip. Are there any issues with storing a large hard suitcase from London to Paris?

Most web sites tell you to bring small collapsible luggage because there is no storage on train for large suitcase. Our suitcases are hard. We will be in Europe for 2 weeks and have one suitcase each. Are there any issues with storing a large hard suitcase from London to Paris?

    Hi Denise,

    On trains in Europe, a typical amount of luggage is 2 large items per person, plus one smaller item. Trains provide sufficient space to store luggage. There would be space between seats or in the overhead racks, as well as at the end of each train car in many cases.

    The Eurostar (the train between London and Paris) is one of the only train types in Europe that imposes specific luggage restrictions. On the Eurostar, adult passengers are allowed up to 2 large pieces of luggage (measuring no more than 85cm in length apiece), plus one smaller item (i.e. hand luggage such as a laptop bag or a briefcase); and child passengers (traveling with a ticket purchased at the child rate) would be allowed 1 large piece of luggage (measuring no more than 85cm in length apiece), plus one smaller item/piece of hand luggage.

    However, the Eurostar is unique from other trains in that it does allow passengers to check luggage. The fee to check additional luggage on the Eurostar is set locally, but I believe it ranges from about £20 to £40 per item.

    With regard to other trains, the general rule is that passengers can take as much luggage on board as they can carry, and there would be no checked luggage option.
