Animals on board
Travelling with pets on an Italo train? No problem. Simply bring your pet’s registration certificate when you travel and you’re ready to go. But wait -- there are a few things you need to know before you travel with your dog, cat or other pets. Read on!
Taking animals on the Italo train is just fine, and if they’re under 10 kg, pets travel for free! Place dogs, cats and other small pets in a carrier or basket for easy transport and to respect your fellow passenger.
You must have your pet’s registration certificate with you when you travel. In the case of foreign travellers, animals must have an ID tag and passport (required by EC Reg. no. 998/2003, where applicable). Dangerous or sick pets may not board the train.
Guide dogs for visually impaired passengers can travel for free on Italo, without any size or weight restrictions.
Dogs over 10 Kg
How to travel with a large dog, you ask? You can take dogs weighing more than 10 kg on the train, but they must wear a muzzle and be kept on a leash for the duration of the journey.
If you’re travelling with a large dog, you must book your ticket at least 24 hours before your trip. The fare for pet transport is set at 30 percent of Base or Economy tickets in Smart and Prima carriages (subject to availability), and a fixed price of 20 euros for those travelling in a Club Salotto (private compartment).
For large dogs, please carry its registration certificate with you. In the case of foreign travellers, animals must have an ID tag and passport (required by EC Reg. no. 998/2003, where applicable). Dangerous or sick pets may not board the train.
If you’ll be travelling with a large dog, please contact the Pronto Italo Contact Center (060708) at least 24 hours before your planned travel date to book your ticket.
