Does anybody have a link to any sort of guide for IR/Eurail travellers on what to do if you miss the last train of the day because of a cancelled or delayed train?
I know it is supposedly the responsibility of the operator of the delayed train, but if the train has many passengers in the same situation and only one member of staff on duty (or even zero staff) what do you do?
What can you claim for and from who?
Do you have to stay calm and wait for them to attend to you or can you go and get a taxi or book a hotel?
What food will they cover?
I know IR/Eurail do give some return for delayed and cancelled trains but, when they say no claims for payments of less than 4 euro will be paid, that clearly shows the payment will be a pittance. It is simply a proportion of your pass cost, not reflecting the retail ticket price, and that they will forward any other costs to the carrier.
