Hi people, I am new here,
I am going away with my daughter, I live in the UK, so through my interrail pass I have booked us to Paris, for a couple of days ,a day trip to Belgium then back to Paris, then on the Friday of the 6 day trip a trip to Amsterdam staying at a hotel and returning to Paris on the Saturday 29th July Eurostar back to the UK on Sunday all accommodation booked all seat reservations made all arrangements made However Thalys have cancelled the part of the return journey from Amsterdam on the Saturday, the part that is cancelled is the Brussels to Paris part, I have tried and tried there are only 2 other trains that evening from Brussels (after we arrive at Brussels from Amsterdam) no availability to book seat reservations with our interrail passes. Even tried looking to see if I could take different train from Amsterdam, but again no availability to book with our interrail passes.
Is my only option to pay the nearly 200 euros for the full fares now ? which makes getting the passes a complete waste, I already had to compromise journey times etc to be able to use the pass so this seems absolutely terrible to me with the passes and all the seat reservations and accommodation this already turned into such an expensive break now this. the extra 2 hundred euros is putting everything at risk and I don't have the option of waiting a day or so because of our Eurostar to the UK on the Sunday ! It's devastating.and if I don't act fast the trains could sell out then we are stuffed!
Does anyone have any advice or ideas ?
Sorry for the long post
