Transport of items (including baby prams/pushchairs)
You may take as your hand luggage at no additional charge objects which are easy to move – those which may be freely placed above and under the space occupied by you in train.
So, pack your luggage wisely: you will not pay extra, if you transport your bicycle or baby pram in a dedicated cover. Items of that size are then deemed hand luggage too. Also, people who are travelling with children do not need to pay extra charges - they may bring their baby pram/pushchair on board unfolded.
When I have to pay for my luggage?
- If you transport objects which are easy to move but cannot be freely placed above and under the space occupied by you on train. In that event an extra fee of PLN 5.10 is charged for each oversize item;
- When transporting one unfolded and unpackaged bicycle (details and instructions on the transport of bicycles can be found in our "Guide for bicycle owners").
Note! Remember: objects to be brought to a railway car cannot pose a threat to the safety and order of transport, cause nuisance to other passengers or cause harm to their property. If these rules are observed, the journey will be pleasant and comfortable for all.
I don't have a ticket for the transport of an item – what should I do?
In the event that a passenger has not paid a fare at a ticket window for the transport of an item, the intention that this be transported should be reported to the conductor prior to the journey beginning, i.e. before entering or immediately after entering the train. A ticket for the transport of an item on an EIP train may be purchased at a ticket window only.
Please be reminded that an additional charge of PLN 10 is made for the issue of a ticket from a conductor on a train.
In the event that a passenger has not forewarned the conductor of the intention that an item be transported, then – besides the charge for item transport of PLN 5.10 – an additional charge is also made, set on the basis of the directive of the Ministry of Infrastructure of 20 January 2005. The charge at this point amounts to PLN 52, and in the event that settlement of the amount due is refused a summons is issued – a protocol with an additional charge of PLN 260. If the passenger pays the charge within seven days of the date of issue of the summons, the charge amounts to PLN 65.
