Holidaymakers prepare for tomorrow’s rail strike

This Friday, Spain’s railway workers are downing tools and going on strike. As one of the busiest days of the year, holidaymakers are being warned of the promised long traffic jams and packed out trains.


As a date traditionally known as the start of the summer holidays, many holiday makers will experience major delays from the strike.


The CGT trade union are downing their tools between midnight tonight and 11pm on Friday. As a result, Renfe has cancelled 274 trains.


Those who use local Cercanias routes can expect a 75 percent of trains running during rush hours but only 50 percent of trains the rest of the day.


If you are one of the effected cancelled trains, Renfe are offering the option to change your ticket or claim a full refund.


The strike has been called after negotiations between the union, Renfe and Adif broke down.
