To all our customers who may be travelling to France during the strikes this weekend…
France 24 have published a fantastic survival guide and seem to be the first in posting the latest travel updates too. Click here to read the survival guide in full.
A summary of travel disruptions and advice are as follows:
For Uk customers travelling to France via air during the strikes:
From today, Friday 22nd October, flights into Paris Charles De Gaulle and Orly will be operating as normal. We find the most useful website for air travel information in France is ww.aeroportsdeparis.fr.
For UK customers travelling to France via rail during the strikes:
Eurostar service from London to France is running normally.But, major services such as TGV and TER are affected by the strikes. TGV are operating eight of ten trains in and out of Paris normally whilst TER are operating just six.
We recommend you visit visit www.sncf.com, for more information.
How the strikes are affecting trams and buses:
Trams in Paris are running normally, but due to disruption elsewhere there are delays and over crowding.
Again, we recommend you speak to staff at your residence or hotel for the best tips of how to get around on your arrival.
