During bad weather, UK train operating companies often decide on ticket easements. For example, during Storm Emma, Virgin Trains declared:
Today (Friday 2 March), all ticket restrictions, inclusive of Advance tickets, have been lifted for all Virgin Trains routes.
Virgin Trains does have mandatory bicycle reservations, including with regular tickets. Do such easements apply to bicycle reservations as well?
On most Virgin Trains carriages, passengers require assistance from staff to open the door to the dedicated bicycle compartment, so one cannot simply hop on board and take any potential discussion from there.
