We’re aware of planned strike action in France on Thursday 29 September.

We will run a full timetable, however, public transport and connecting journeys in France may be disrupted. 

Please plan ahead and allow extra time for your journey. Traffic info can be found on the following websites: 

  • SNCF.com for connecting journeys in France

UK rail strikes on 01 and 05 October

Travelling on 01 October? 

There will be a national strike across the UK railway network on that day. Although the strike doesn’t involve Eurostar staff, it will have an impact on our timetable as running hours have been reduced on UK rail lines, including the high-speed line we use.  
 
This means we’ll be running a reduced timetable on 01 October.  
 
Check our revised timetable to find out if your train is cancelled or the departure and arrival times have changed.  
 
If your Eurostar train is cancelled, you can: 
 

  • Exchange your booking for free to travel at a different time/date in the same travel class, subject to availability OR 
  • Cancel your booking and claim a Eurostar e-voucher valid for 12 months OR 
  • Cancel your booking and claim a refund from where you originally bought your ticket. 

 
Find out more about your options.  
 
If your train is now departing at a different time, please download your ticket again for up-to-date information and arrive at the station at the recommended time shown on your updated ticket. 
 
If your train is scheduled to run, there will still be major disruption to local railway traffic in the UK, which may affect connecting journeys. Please plan your journey to/from St Pancras International carefully and allow extra time. 


Travelling on 05 October? 

Eurostar will operate as normal and the London Underground will remain open. However, disruption is to be expected on other trains in the UK, including London Overground trains. 

Please allow extra time to travel to/from London and check for updates if you’re taking a connecting train in the UK.
