Current disruptions

1. RENFE-SNCF: France national rail strike on July 6th


After sales:

For trips scheduled for July 6, you will be able to choose: 

  • The cancellation of your trip and the full refund of the initial ticket by contacting Rail Europe through the usual channel for exceptional requests..
  • Free exchange of your ticket for any other travel date within the limits of available seats. 
  • If the exchange is made before the departure of the initial train, you must go to the station where your ticket will be exchanged free of charge for another train, with issuance of a replacement fare. 

    Travellers with a return ticket who decide to cancel their trip may also request a refund of the journey not affected by the cancellation if it is not used

    What to do if you experience a delay

    Please speak to staff on the train or at the station if you are delayed. They will have the most up to date information and can tell you what to do. Also, ask the staff to stamp your ticket with proof of delay. This will make it easier for you to travel on later trains.

    Keep all of your tickets until you return home. They can be used to submit a claim to the rail operator if you incur any unavoidable additional costs (new tickets, taxis).

    For more information, please see our Help article: What happens if I miss my connection. If you need to submit a claim, see: Submitting a claim to Renfe.

    If you have tickets for onward travel on trains which are scheduled to run as normal, refunds and exchanges are only permitted as per fare conditions.
