French travel problems this weekend (26-29 August)

It seems that a Bank holiday weekend means that the French go on strike. Not to disappoint, this coming Bank Holiday is no exception.

Eurotunnel is expecting delays due to industrial action from Friday. French workers are demanding an 8% pay rise.

Eurotunnel are not taking new bookings at present. This is bound to have a knock-on effect for other transport to the UK.

I think it's part of the culture. They like a good strike. Normally what happens is the pilots strike then the cabin crew then the baggage handlers then the guy that brings the fuel and then the farmers. Talking helps.
