French Train strike question

Jump to last reply

We arrive on Wednesday the 25th of May and have plans for trekking to St. Lazare for a noon train to Caen, where I have a car rental reservation waiting. With the strike information I'm seeing, today, I've begun checking on alternatives. I do not relish renting from CDG and driving up to Caen after a long flight. The cost of the one-way car rental is about 35% higher than my existing reservation too. I assume my train tickets would be refundable, but that isn't really that big of a deal.

A couple of questions really. If I can't get to St. Lazare due to strikes, will I just lose out on the tickets to Caen refund if the train actually runs?

Other than making the rental car reservation from CDG for a pay later option, is there any alternatives that you might recommend?
