Jewel of the south west
1. Drop off your car or motorcycle at the AutoTrain station in Paris
2. Your vehicle travels overnight to your destination
3. Pick up your vehicle and enjoy the rest of your holiday
Please note: AutoTrain does not carry passengers. Make your own way to your destination on a separate daytime or overnight train, avoiding the traffic jams, the road tolls, and the stress.
CLASS OF SERVICE
As AutoTrain only carries vehicles and not people, there are no classes as such. But fares do vary according to the type of vehicle you wish to transport, as well as the flexibility you want with your ticket.
Whatever you can fit in your car you can take. There are no additional supplements so compared to flying out and then hiring a car, it can work out to be very good value.
Want to take your pet with you? Animals can't be left on the AutoTrain however, you can take some pets with you on French passenger trains.
Fancy taking your own bike? You're in luck! If you have a rear mounted bicycle carrier you can take two adult bikes and one child bike per car, for no extra charge.
(1) Fare quoted based on a one-way journey per car.
