Caledonian Sleeper (Serco)

Tel: 0330 060 0500

Animals are welcome on board the Caledonian Sleeper. Assistance dogs can travel free of charge – and if you have a room and want to bring a domestic pet with you, we charge £30 on top of your train ticket price. That cost pays for a deep clean of the room, which reassures other guests – especially those with allergies.

Add one pet to your booking within the journey planner to purchase.

Note if you are travelling in a seat, or a standard room as a solo passenger you are not permitted to take a pet.
