Train strikes in the United Kingdom may impact passengers taking the Eurostar between London and the European mainland this week.

On Tuesday 21 June, Thursday 23 June and Saturday 25 June, railway workers will go on strike in the United Kingdom over salary and job redundancies.

As a result, Eurostar will be running a reduced timetable between 21 and 25 June, with fewer trains travelling between Brussels and London and vice versa.

If your Eurostar train is cancelled, you can either reschedule your booking for free and travel at a later time/date, claim a Eurostar e-voucher that is valid for 12 months after the cancellation, or seek a refund of your ticket at a point of sale, the railway company told passengers on their website.

The company also warned passengers of significant disruption to local rail traffic in the UK, which might affect connecting journeys, especially on the London Underground

All scheduled Eurostar trains should run normally on the two days (Wednesday and Friday) between the strike.
