From the beginning of April, the SNCF has been strongly affected by the intermittently planned railway strike, with a well-organized and well-noted timetable. The railway workers decided to organize a strike of two days every five days for 3 months.

The fourth flow of the strikes has started this week and will affect several transport networks throughout France (TGV, Ouigo, TER, Intercités, RER, Transiliens and international lines). During these days of strikes, serious disturbances will occur and will negatively influence the daily lives of active people who need to move to go to work, to school or simply to move from one point to another. For example, in the region of Paris, the SNCF announces 2 trains out of 5.

Public transports most of the time are very comfortable, but sometimes using them can
become a real nightmare. Well, what alternatives do exist during these strikes? How to move easily and without depending on anything?

If you want to check the strike timetable, check out this link.

Cooltra Paris offers a service of scooter rental, per days or per months. The rental contracts are flexible and complete. Everything is included: your helmet, all-risk insurance with franchise, roadside assistance and maintenance. So, if you live in Paris and want to move around the city without problems, renting a scooter seems to be the best option.

If you want to rent a scooter during the days of the strike, book online at Cooltra.com. But if you want to feel the freedom of moving around all the time you can rent a scooter monthly. Contact our shop in Paris.

Living in one of the most beautiful cities in the world has its many perks. A wealth of galleries, museums, delicious food, beautiful walks and a melodic language under no matter what context.
