Anyone driving / looking for a car share from Paris to Switzerland on Monday?

Hello fellow EFers, I'm posting this for the lovely Nanda who is also sidetracked because of the ash.

She is arriving in Paris on Monday, 19th of April via Eurostar at 2pm (more specifically 13.17 @ Paris Nord train station, but there will probably be delays) and is looking to just get anywhere close to Switzerland, with extra bonus points for Zurich. Since the French have been on train strike for 11 days, as they would, booking TGV tickets is currently not an option. Update on the strike situation is Sunday 5pm but there will probably be a backlog of people wanting to travel.

So either:
  • someone is driving from Paris to Switzerland on Monday afternoon and would let Nanda join
  • someone/several people is/are also stuck in Paris and would be prepared to rent a car together with Nanda to drive back on the Monday
  • some other variant on this theme that I have not thought of during my stint as an amateur travel agent for a truly awesome person who really has to be home by Tuesday morning
Costs will obviously be shared. Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.

Here is a fellow EF member driving from England on Monday and offering transport. There could be possibilities. Heading to Zurich as well

Stuck in England? Need to get to Zurich/Basel?

I saw that (brilliant idea, gave him a load of green blobs) but unless he is driving through Paris and arriving before 9am on Tuesday in Zurich, it's probably not an option for Nanda. Will forward her the thread though, if she chances upon teh interwebs and reckons it's an idea, she'll let me know, I'm sure... Thanks for the heads up!

Thankfully the Eurostar guys let Nanda get a refund on her ticket so this has worked out after all. Absolutely brilliant.

To all those stuck in Paris, the French have more or less stopped striking according to the SNCF website, but the seats are selling out really fast, so I would advise booking your ticket in advance, rather than just going to the train station and hoping for the best.
