Eurostar London Routes

Only trained and registered Assistance & Service Dogs are permitted on Eurostar train services between London and EU destinations. No other animals are allowed to travel on the Eurostar London trains, including Emotional Support Animals (ESAs), as they are not trained to perform a specific task for their owner. You can check out reviews for Eurostar trains for those who’ve travelled with an Assistance or Service Dog. If you want to cross The Channel with your cat or dog, European Sleeper has an exciting new option between London and Berlin for 2023. There are also many pet friendly ferries that offer this service. Otherwise, you may decide to choose from the pet friendly airlines that transport your pet in the cabin or hold, or one of the pet couriers that offer specialised animal travel.

Assistance & Service Dogs on Eurostar London Trains

For your dog to travel under the Eurostar Assistance & Service Dog policy, they must have been trained by an organisation that’s either a member, or affiliated with, one of the following:

  • Assistance Dogs (UK)
  • The International Guide Dog Federation
  • Assistance Dogs International

Permitted Eurostar Routes for Assistance & Service Dogs

Registered Assistance & Service Dogs are welcome on these Eurostar London routes:

  • London St Pancras International or Ebbsfleet – Paris
  • London St Pancras International or Ebbsfleet – Brussels
  • London St Pancras International or Ebbsfleet – Lille
  • London St Pancras International or Ebbsfleet – Calais
  • London St Pancras International – Rotterdam/Amsterdam

Note that travel from Holland to England, is sold as 2 segments. One by Thalys Trains, and the other by Eurostar. Trains between France and England are operated solely by Eurostar.

Also be aware that you can board the train at Ashford International but you’ll only be able to return to the UK via St Pancras International or Ebbsfleet International. This is due to the authorities only being able to carry out their checks on your dog’s documents in London and Ebbsfleet at the moment.

For safety reasons, only four Assistance or Service Dogs can travel on each Eurostar train. So, remember to let Eurostar know at the time of booking that your Guide or Assistance Dog is travelling too, to ensure there is enough space.

When travelling to the UK, your dog needs a Tapeworm Treatment, and all pet travel documentation should be in order.

Always protect your dog against vector-borne diseases in a foreign country, and remember to leave a review if you have travelled on the Eurostar with your Assistance or Service Dog!
