The even more bad news is that -judging reports from here- all passholder quota seats are taken all the days around that 13/8



That £15 admin fee is a bit steep, bad pr for eurostar considering they are advertising unlimited and free ticket exchange for regular ticket holders - interrail pass holder being fleeced maybe?

How technically difficult is it to add an extra carriage?

Eurostar are operating most of their services on strike days. Refer to their website for more details. If they cancel your train they will transfer you free of charge or give a full refund. It is technically impossible to add an extra carriage to a Eurostar train. I won’t bore you with the details.
