Strikes planned for 30th March and 1st April have been suspended. Train operators are expected to be able to run a normal service. If you have already refunded your ticket for these days and still wish to travel, you will need to re-book.
You may not need to refund your ticket. Validity easements have now been announced for the latest series of strikes in March and April. Customers holding valid tickets dates for a strike day are permitted to travel the day before the strike or on a few days after the strike. See full details.
Customers with tickets dated for a strike day who decide not to travel due to the disruption are eligible for a fee-free refund regardless of booked ticket type.
The information below is retained as an archive of the original ticket easements put in place. Due to the late-notice suspension of the strikes, if you have already made alternative arrangements on the basis of these ticket easements then it is likely that they will still be honoured by train companies.
If you hold a ticket dated on a strike day falling within the date ranges below, you can use it as-is on a number of alternative days. You do not need to replace your ticket or re-book.
|Date Range||Ticket Validity|
|16-18 March||On the day before the date on the ticket or up to and including Tuesday 21 March|
|30 March-1 April||On the day before the date on the ticket or up to and including Tuesday 4 April|
