Visiting France just got easier for UK travellers, as all remaining Covid travel rules have been scrapped for visitors.

Until this change, visitors needed to show proof of vaccination or a negative Covid test, but France has now removed these requirements for Brits – just in time for the summer.

There’s no need to show vaccination status, take a test or sign ‘justification for travel’ documents, however there has been a change in regulation regarding passports. Your passport needs to have been issued less than ten years before the date you enter France (or any EU country), even if it is ‘in date’ when you travel.

Travel rules can change quickly and we always advise that you should check the FCDO website for the most up to date information on the place you’re planning to visit.

While the removal of restrictions might increase confidence to book a trip to France, it does not take away the risk of catching the virus while you’re abroad, or falling ill before you travel, meaning Travel Insurance remains crucial. In fact, our recent survey found that 97% of people consider Travel Insurance more important than ever.

Accidents and illness can happen anywhere and Travel Insurance can be a handy safety net, should you need treatment abroad. You’ll also be covered for trip cancellation, curtailment and loss, theft or damage to your baggage.
