Italian railway Trenitalia allows passengers to bring pets for free this summer

 Friday, June 24, 2022 


The principal rail company in Italy, Trenitalia is allowing passengers to bring their dogs on trains for free this summer. Trenitalia is country’s main operator, recently announced that small pets including cats and dogs do not need to pay for the next few months. Trenitalia is giving passengers the chance to bring their small pets with them without paying this summer.

The dogs, cats and other pets can travel on the house if they fit within a carrier measuring a maximum of 70x30x50 centimetres. Animals must be placed within the carrier throughout the journey and passengers can only bring one pet per person.

This new offer is valid for journeys on Trenitalia’s Freccia e Intercity trains. It is available for passengers travelling first and second class, as well as on Executive, Business, Premium and Standard tickets.

The rail company is allowing pets to travel for free until 15 September 2022.

Italo, another rail company in Italy, also permits dogs weighing up to 5 kilograms to travel for free inside a carrier. The bigger dogs are permitted to travel on Trenitalia trains. However, they must pay the pet ticket price which varies depending on the passenger ticket.

They are also required to be kept on a leash and wear a muzzle. To buy a pet ticket, passengers should select the “travel with your dog” option on the Trenitalia website, application or at ticket machines in stations before purchasing. The cost of the ticket is half the price of a regular fare for a second class or standard ticket.

Larger dogs are not permitted in Executive or Premium service levels, in the Working Area, Quiet Zone or Private seating areas. They are also not allowed on regional trains from 7am to 9am Monday to Friday. On Italo trains, larger dogs also need a ticket, priced depending on the journey. The operator allows large dogs to travel in a “reserved space” next to passengers.
