Take your bike abroad

When travelling abroad, you can take your bicycle with you. In train timetables for domestic and foreign travel, trains allowing transport of bicycles are marked with a framed bicycle symbol. 

Certain provisions apply when combining bike and train:

  • Passengers must travel by the same train as their bicycle.
  • Passengers may transport only one bicycle.
  • Passengers load the bicycle by themselves, keep an eye on the bicycle during transport and unload the bicycle at the final destination.
  • Passengers travelling to a foreign country purchase a ticket for bicycle transport in Slovenia.
  • Passengers travelling to Slovenia from abroad purchase a ticket for bicycle transport abroad. The price for combining bike and train may vary according to the direction of travel. The stated prices for bicycle transport apply for the whole route, i.e. in Slovenia and abroad.

  • EC 134/135 Maribor/Celje/Ljubljana – Trieste and vice versa,

Bicycle fares

The price of a bicycle ticket may vary depending on the direction of travel. The ticket price is calculated on the basis of the ticket price for the journey of an adult with a discount approved by the individual transport company.

The exceptions are Croatia and Hungary, for which a flat rate of EUR 5.00 applies. The prices apply to transporting the bike along the entire route, i.e. along the Slovenian and foreign part of the route.

Restrictions when combining bike and train

Construction work on tracks may occasionally involve changed regimes for train travel. In such cases, a replacement bus service is arranged for certain scheduled trains. As transport of bicycles can also be disrupted, please check all possibilities for combining bike and train before travel.
