    Default Travelling with Luggage

    Can I travel with luggage in the Paris Metro and buses?

    Hi Lulusky,

    You can bring luggage with you on buses & Metro. The rule of thumb is as long as it doesn't block passage of riders (due to luggage size) then you can bring it onto the Metro/Bus/RER trains.

    On Metro/RER trains, I tend to stay at either end of the train car and take up the space of the folding chairs to be the least bothersome to other passengers.

    Dear lulusky,

    I personally do not encourage anyone who is carrying a luggage bag to take a train in Paris
    because by doing so, you're telling others that you are a tourist and you'll expose yourself
    to risks.

    The metro trains and stations are reported to have a high number of pickpocketing activities,
    according to local police statistics! One thing to take note is that the station platform is lower
    than the train, which means that you'll need to lift your luggage bag up onto the arriving train.

    If possible, contact your hotel to arrange for a shuttle van to pick you up. It is safer this way.
    And the cost is reasonable. Otherwise, take a taxi.

    Be aware of your surroundings at all times when in Paris.

    Take care.
