Travelling with Children

If you’re planning on taking your little ones on their first Caledonian Sleeper adventure or you’re a regular traveller, you’ll find everything you need to know about our family tickets and interconnecting room options here.

Travelling with Infants aged 0-4

Infants aged between 0 and 4 are permitted to travel free of charge with a paying accompanying adult.

One infant is permitted for each paying adult. The infant must share a seat or bed with the paying adult. If you would like your infant to have their own seat or bed you must purchase a child ticket.

Travelling with Children under the age of 12

Children aged under 12 must travel in the same room or interconnecting room (Classic Room) with their accompanying adult.

Travelling with Children aged 12 to 15

Children aged between 12 and 15 are welcome to travel in a room by themselves. Please note that the children must travel in a room directly next to an accompanying adult.

Travelling with Children under the age of 12 in the top bunk

We advise that children under 12 should not sleep in an upper bed whilst travelling on our services.

Family tickets

Our family tickets are available to all our guests travelling with children on any route. Our family tickets offer a saving of up to 33%, making your Caledonian Sleeper experience more affordable.

To book a Family Ticket online, choose the number of adults and children in the booking widget. The system will apply the family ticket discount automatically.

Travel Cots

Please note when travelling with infants and younger children, our rooms are too narrow for standard travel cots.

Interconnecting or Adjacent Rooms

Our service provides a unique offering of interconnecting rooms so that you can keep the family close by when you travel. Interconnecting rooms are available in our Classic Rooms only and are perfect for snuggling down and sharing bedtime stories together.

Booking an interconnecting room online

Select the number of adults and children required on your chosen route and date of travel.

Select Classic Room from the main booking page (Club En-Suite and Caledonian Double En-Suite rooms do not have interconnecting rooms).

The booking system will automatically allocate rooms for you. Check your rooms are in the same coach, and the room numbers are consecutive numbers.

You can change rooms and coach by clicking on ‘Select Rooms’ on the review order page as shown below to choose your room from our train diagram.

If you are unable to find the correct rooms, contact or Guest Ambassadors via our live chat or on by calling 0330 060 0500 or +44 141 555 0888 if calling from outside the UK
