strike- 10th september

Note that there is a strike planned for the 10th september, so if you are planning train travel, especially long distance travel, you may experience delays and cancellations.

Exact effects will not be known till nearer the time.

The strike may also concern Air France flights

My husband has changed his train ticket to the monday rather than wait to see what happens on the tuesday since trying to change tickets on a strike day can be chaos

Selkie, can you provide more details? You mention train travel, and Air France, who exactly is going on strike?

We were caught in a rail strike in June. My only advice is don't take what SNCF posts as affected trains as gospel truth. Their website told us our train was running; it wasn't and so we were caught in the schmozzle at Nice train station with everyone else.

If you have reserved tickets for that day, take a bus or rent a car and cash in your train ticket at your destination.

Not all tickets will alolow a refund after the train is expected to have run. so you are best sorting things out in advance, travelling the day before or after if necessary .
