Transport services across Europe are being affected by severe weather, with flights subject to delays and cancellations. Passengers should check directly with their airline or travel operator for the latest information before travelling.

Eurostar services are currently experiencing delays. Eurostar will be operating a significantly reduced timetable until Sunday 5 December. For further information, please see the Eurostar website.

Further disruption due to severe weather is likely. You should check for the latest travel information on the routes you are using, and that your travel insurance covers you for delays and cancellations.
