Travelling by Train with Infant

Jump to last reply

Hi there,

My husband and I are travelling throughout Europe for a month, with an 8 month old son. I have already booked the majority of our transportation- ranging from flights, cars and one train.

Then, a moment of panic set in.

I have read areas where the train webpage says "must make reservation of children, even though they travel for free":

"Seat, couchette and other reservations must be made even for a child traveling for free and still requires a reservation fee" -- Trenilita webpage

Now, I know it refers to a 'child' but, similar to a flight, you always put in the infants information-- there is no area for this for infants on the Italian Trains (where I have been focusing my efforts)

I am hoping someone can put me at ease: since infants travel for free-- is there any 'reservation' I have to make for him? Or, can we easily take him aboard with a purchased adult ticket?

Also, if you have travelled with an infant and care to share any tips... that is always appreciated.

Thanks again,
