Luggage aboard the Mont-Blanc Express

Hi,

I was just wondering if it is a good idea to bring luggages on board the Mont-Blanc Express? Would it be very inconvenient due to tight spaces on the train, or for any other reasons?

Thanks!

It shouldn't be a problem as long as your luggage is reasonable.

It is a very small train. No 1st class. And not all that much room for luggage because of the high windows (better views!) which mean no overhead luggage racks. You would have to fit your luggage between the seats or leave it at the end of the carriage. You also have to change trains once in this journey Martigny to Chamonix or VV at Vallorcine. Not a hard change but still don't have huge suitcases.

You can bring anything you like, nobody weighs or measures it. As large a suitcase as you like.

But you have to handle it, as on any bus, train or metro, so pack sensibly.

It goes on the racks, or on the floor, Simple as that! No worries!

There are no overhead racks on the train Martigny/Vallorcine... not any that would take a large suitcase anyway.
