Travelling with children
Planning on booking some Caledonian Sleeper tickets for yourself and your children and want to know what to expect on your adventure? Well, you’ve come to the right place! We’ve included all of the information that you may like to know right here, so that you and your little one’s can prepare for all of the excitement!
|Travelling with Infants aged 0-4||Whether you are taking a little person on their first Caledonian Sleeper journey or a returning regular, we’ve got you all covered! Infants aged between 0 and 4 are permitted to travel free of charge with a paying accompanying adult!
Please note that a maximum of one infant only is permitted per one adult ticket, and the infant must share your seat or bed. If you would like for your infant to have their own seat or bed, you may be interested in purchasing a Child Ticket or our Family Ticket option.
|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 between 12 to 15||Children aged between 12 and 15 are welcome to travel in a room by themselves, for that ultimate grown up feeling! 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.|

Interconnecting or Adjacent Rooms
Our service provides a unique offering of interconnecting rooms so that you can travel in peace of mind that your children will be right there with you. The interconnecting rooms are available in our Classic Rooms only and are perfect for snuggling down and sharing bedtime stories with a hot chocolate altogether!
To book 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 and Caledonian Doubles do not have interconnecting rooms).
- The rooms will be pre-selected for you. Check your rooms are all in the same coach and the room numbers are consecutive numbers.
- You can change rooms and coach by clicking on ‘Select Rooms’ as shown below to choose your room from our train diagram.
If you are unable to find the rooms, don’t worry, just give our Guest Service centre a call on 0330 060 0500 (if calling from overseas, please call +44 141 555 0888) and one of our helpful Guest Ambassadors will be happy to assist you!
Our bespoke family tickets are available to all of our guests travelling with children on any route! The ticket offers a saving of up to 33%, making your Caledonian Sleeper experience even more affordable for all the family. To book a Family Ticket online, simply select the number of adults and children required on your chosen route and date of travel and the option will display on the next window!
Please note when travelling with infants and younger children, our rooms are too narrow for standard travel cots.
