Rail – Industry strikes will affect 14 different rail operators throughout the UK, and are scheduled to take place on 20, 22 and 29 July 2023. Not all services will be cancelled during the strike, so check the National Rail website before travelling. Some train staff will also refuse to work overtime from July 31 to August 5 in a dispute over pay, which could cause rail disruption due to staff shortages.

International – Industrial action isn’t just limited to the UK. If you’re travelling to or from Spain, Portugal, France or Italy, various airline staff strikes are planned throughout the summer.
