Travel train in Czech Republic

Hello Everybody,

Do you know whether it is required to buy the Luggage ticket when travelling by the train ??

I saw some forum said that people were fine for forgot to buy the luggage tickets when travelling train.

Any idea ??

Hope to hear your experience.

Thanks.

Gavin

You should give a link to that information. I've never heard of buying a luggage ticket when traveling by train and I've been on a lot of trains with luggage. I've traveled by train to and from the Czech Republic and have never needed a luggage ticket.

The only place I had to buy a ticket for my bags was on the Venice vaporetto.

There is no such thing as a luggage ticket. You take the luggage on board the train yourself and are responsible for it for the entire trip - but you can;t put it in someone else's seat - it has to go on the overhead rack (small bags) or at the end of the car (big bags).

Are you sure you're not asking about a seat reservation?

Yes, some systems require tickets for luggage. Milan subway requires a ticket for your luggage, but I don't think anyone pays attention to it.
***Luggage Ticket
Price: € 1.50
Validity: 90 minutes after stamping. Ticket is valid for the transport of a single piece of luggage for which a ticket is required. On the Milan city network a standard Milan ticket may be used in place of a luggage ticket. As for all tickets, luggage tickets should be stamped at the start of the journey; luggage tickets should be presented to ticket inspectors alongside your ticket or travel card if requested.***

It seems the Czech system has tickets for oversized luggage and for luggage storage.

Thanks for the above replies.

After fully inspected, luggage tickets are required in the Bus.

However, How about when travelling in Metro with Luggages ??

thanks.
