Holidaymakers to France are being advised to double check travel arrangements with their operator after French unions announced further strike days.

Eurostar has already announced that it has stopped selling any more tickets on trains from Paris to London on Thursday due to cross-sector strikes.

The cross-Channel rail operator said it will contact clients whose journeys might be affected by any forced changes to its timetable this week.

Workers across France have held several one-day strikes already this year, but Paris’s public transport system is set to be hit by rolling strikes, starting on 7 March.

In an update to its France travel advice, the Foreign Office said: “Several unions have called for cross-sector strike action and demonstrations on Thursday 16 February and Tuesday 7 March.

“Industrial action may start the evening before a strike day and run until the morning after. Localised or sector-specific strikes could also occur outside these dates.

“Industrial action may lead to disruption to services. Please check the latest advice with operators before travelling, avoid demonstrations and follow the advice of local authorities.”
