Hi everyone :)
My partner and I are planning to travel from the UK to Germany on Friday 16th December but there will be rail strikes on that day. LNER trains to London will probably still be running but if their regular strike schedule is anything to go by there won’t be a train early enough for us to catch our Eurostar connection (since we are coming down from Scotland).
Now, National Rail says that if you have a ticket for a strike day you can also use on the day before or after - would the same be fine with the Interrail pass (i.e. can we activate our ticket for the whole way for Friday and then use that to travel the leg to London on Thursday just like you would do with a regular ticket?) I’m just a bit worried that the conductors but be a bit fussy about this since it’s technically a flexible ticket (even though we have already booked our Eurostar journeys out and back into the country and therefore don’t have any inbound/ountbound journey left to allocate)
Does anyone here have any thought or experience with this?
