Rail Strike in Britain
Strikes are expected on the entire national rail network in Scotland*, England and Wales on Saturday 13, Thursday 18 & Saturday 20 August. This will have an effect on rail & sail connections to and from Harwich, Holyhead, Cairnryan & Fishguard. London Underground staff will also go on strike. Services on the days after each strike day are likely to start up later than usual. Please be aware of potential delays when continuing your journey by public transport. Check your routing at www.nationalrail.co.uk before you travel. Please note it is no longer possible to make new Rail & Sail bookings for these dates and existing bookings may be changed to alternative dates.
* On 13 August only – ScotRail services within Scotland will operate as normal and so Rail & Sail via Cairnryan will be unaffected. However no connections will be available outside of Scotland on this day.
Rail & Sail is the affordable, convenient and comfortable way to travel, offering competitive, guaranteed fares and no luggage restrictions.
