Is there help and special access for disabled travellers on trains?
Most railway companies in Europe offer facilities for disabled passengers. Standards vary between countries and railway companies, but in many cases disabled travellers can expect the following:
- Special train compartments for wheelchair users
- Lifts or mobile ramps to access the train
- Assistance boarding the train by trained staff
- Toilets suitable for disabled travellers
You usually need to request assistance in advance. The best way to find out about the arrangements per country on the railway companies' websites or on the guide created by Interrail. You can also get information below, and contact the DiscoverEU Travel Team for any questions you may have.
