Belgrade to Thessaloniki with bikes that do not fold

Is this is a possible journey for a date around the 8-10th of May 2016 and without dismantling the bikes? A blog post said this line is no longer operational but I'm not sure. If so is it possible to provide dates, times and prices?

Hello Barry,

Thanks for the question.

As there are no direct trains from Belgrade to Thessaloniki, you will have to break and book.

You can book and travel as follows:

- Belgrade to Sofia – Eurocities train.

- Sofia to Thessaloniki – Not bookable on the website.

Kindly note that there is no special indication while processing your booking in case you wish to take your bike on the train. In some cases, normally, your bicycle must be boxed and placed in a separate car, or it might have to be transported on a separate train. Extra charges may apply, and you must arrange bike transport locally. However, bikes are allowed as checked luggage on the EC, IC, ICE, and TGV trains. The bike must be wrapped, with the wheels and pedals detached, and the handlebars parallel to the frame.

However, request you to check locally about bikes once at the train station.

In order to book tickets, please visit our website.

You would need to feed in the Departure city and the Arrival city along with the travel date and preferred time & the number of passengers (Senior, adults, youth and children), and then click on “search tickets”. Once you do so, you would find the schedules along with the fares. You need to select the fare which is preferable to you and then add it to Cart. Once added, you need to mention the names of the passengers to make the payment on the next page.

Hope this helps!!!

Best Regards,
