French railway strike set to disrupt travel, including high-speed lines

According to SNCF, 60% of routes will be affected by the strike for higher wages, including high-speed TGV and Intercite lines.

Eurostar, Thalys, and suburban trains will not be disrupted, but rail travelers to Switzerland, Italy, Germany, and Spain will face disruption.

Normal transportation is expected to resume on Monday.

The strike ahead of Christmas and the New Year has left many travelers worried as the controllers have already given a strike notice for those busy holiday weekends.

Passengers who have booked tickets are advised to confirm the train is still running before heading to the station.
