Getting your car
there—by train

Want to take your car with you and use it at your destination? With SNCF’s Auto/Train service, your car can hit the rails too.

It’s easy. Book Auto/Train services up to seven months in advance, then simply drop your vehicle at your Auto/Train station. Your vehicle will travel by night, and you or any person you choose can pick it up at its destination. Auto/Train carries no passengers, so you can choose your own mode of travel. 

Got lots of luggage? With Auto/Train, you can travel light—just leave your luggage in your car.

Bicycle on board

Your bicycle is welcome on the SNCF network. Fold it to 90 cm x 120 cm or smaller, and you can take it on any train at no charge. Otherwise, you'll need to remove the wheels and pack them in a carrying bag with the frame. But your bike still travels for free—and it doesn’t need a reservation.

And with our door-to-door delivery service, you can ship your bicycle without ever going to the station. Delivery within France is €80*, and you can track your shipment at all times.
