Travelling with a Dog

Valid from 15 December 2013

You can take your four-legged friend with you even on your trip aboard a ČD train...

With a dog aboard ČD trains

With a dog on a leash, it is possible to travel on all ČD trains in 2nd carriage class only. The dog must always wear a safety muzzle and must be kept on a short leash. The dog may not be transported in a seat. The transport of dogs, except for the guide dogs of blind holders of a ZTP/P card and assistance dogs, is excluded in 1st class carriages (here it is possible to transport a small dog in a closed container), in restaurant carriages, in carriages (compartments) reserved for transporting passengers with children under 10 years of age and in quiet compartments, and is restricted in sleeper and couchette carriages. In 1st carriage class, you can also travel with a small dog in a closed container which cannot occupy a separate seat. In sleeper and couchette carriages, you can travel with a dog only if you purchase the entire compartment for yourself (e.g. the category Single in a sleeper carriage, or if purchasing the entire compartment for one’s family). In Finland, Norway, Sweden, Great Britain, Ireland, Hungary and Italy, dogs cannot be transported in sleeper or couchette carriages under any circumstances.

Schedule of carriage fees for dogs

The transport of a small dog in a closed container is free of charge (just like the transport of hand luggage), but this container must not occupy a separate seat. For the transport on the train of a dog not in a container, it is necessary to pay a carriage fee for a dog according to the distance travelled. No seat reservation is paid for a dog on required reservation trains (e.g. SC Pendolino trains).

Guide dogs for the blind and assistance dogs may travel together with passengers in 1st class.
