Passengers can book their ticket or pets at the same time as they book their own ticket, regardless of the ordering method. There are two different rates for animals.

If the pet weighs less than 6 kilos, it travels in a bag or basket (45 cm x 30 cm x 25 cm maximum). In this case, the animal may travel on the lap or at the foot of the passenger with whom it is travelling. For a small animal a fee of 7.5 euros is applicable.

If the pet weighs more than 6 kilos, it travels by being muzzled all the way. In this case, the animal travels at the foot of the passenger. For a large animal, the fare is equivalent to 50% of the full fare price of a 2nd class ticket, calculated on the basis of the kilometer scale.
