  1. I need to travel from Argeles to Agde (or Beziers ) on Monday 18th June 2018 to fly to UK, but this is a “strike day”. Will ALL trains be affected, and is there a bus I can use? Can anyone give me this information please?

    Bus services in France seem very thinly spread and untourist friendly.

    1. From what I understand, in June, the strike days already scheduled are: Saturday 2nd, Sunday 3rd, Thursday 7th, Friday 8th, Tuesday 12th, Wednesday 13th, Sunday 17th, Monday 18th, Friday 22nd, Saturday 23rd, Wednesday 27th and Thursday 28th. The best option is to contact SNCF direct, either at the Station or on their website to try and find out locally what the situation will be.

      I imagine that some trains during the day will be running, as this seems the case across the whole of the country, although coverage is patchy. Some times SNCF is putting on bus services to help, but again this is generally localised and on popular routes.

      Hope this helps.
