The SNFC train strikes is the longest train strike in more than 30 years and it has been happening since April 2018. This will continue till summer causing problem to more travellers in France.




The strike is against planned modernization and permitting competition against the network. So, far the Eurostar remains unaffected and trains to and from Paris were not cancelled.



Britishers need to update themselves with strict laws for road users while driving through France, they will be required to carry full driving license all the time along with the proof of insurance and form of ID.



The road limits have also been changed recently and the alcohol limit for drivers is less than in the UK.
