Need Travel Insurance for France? We’ve got you covered

The nation known for its art, architecture and culture, France is on the top of many travellers’ bucket lists. With so much to explore, from the Alps in the North to the beaches in the South, France has something for everyone. Make sure you’ve packed your Travel Insurance to ensure you are protected against illness, injuries, loss of personal possessions or cancellations. As accidents can happen, Just Travel Cover aims to provide peace of mind that if something goes wrong, you’re covered. 

Travel Insurance is particularly important if you are over 65 or have a pre-existing medical condition. At Just Travel Cover we provide cover for all ages and offer cover for one holiday (single trip) and annual policies, if you’re a frequent flyer – these can be European or worldwide, for example if you’re going to France and the USA in the same 12 month period. 

 

Make the most out of your time in France

We’ve put together some insider tips on the culture, etiquette and how-to’s of travelling to France. The Just Travel Cover team wants to make sure you enjoy every second of the holiday, without any worries or surprises.

When in France learn French

While many French nationals speak English, learning French is the best way to experience the culture. Although English is widely spoken in major cities and tourist sites, we suggest making the effort to learn the language, even if it is just the basics.

Sample the local cuisine

When in Rome? Well, when in France eat like the French! French food is renowned all over the world and for good reason. From fresh produce from the local markets to Michelin-star meals, there are plenty of options for you to try delicious French cuisine.

Get to know the French schedule

Mealtimes are incredibly important to the French and time is dedicated to sitting down and savouring your meal. Breakfast is simple and eaten early in the morning, lunch is between 12 to 2 pm and dinner is often around 7:30/8pm. This can be difficult if you’re travelling with little ones.

There is no dress code

France is notable for its fashion, but not everyone is dressed head to toe in Chanel. The most important factors in planning and packing for France are the activities you’ll be doing on your trip AND the weather. The weather in France is dependent on the season, so our experts suggest dressing for comfort.

Keep an eye on your belongings

As a whole, Paris is a very safe city. Unfortunately, pickpocketing remains a prominent problem in the French capital, particularly in congested areas and around tourist landmarks.

How much is travel insurance to France?

The final cost of your travel insurance is dependent on how long you’re going for as well as factors like your age and medical history. Our travel insurance policies offer cover for hundreds of pre-existing medical conditions as well as certain activities while you’re away. Each insurer will typically offer a bronze, silver and gold price with different cover limits and excesses. As each policy is tailored to the individual’s health and travel needs, the final cost will be a reflection of this.

    What travel insurance do I need in France?

    Whether you are a frequent traveller or only travel once a year, we work with a panel of trusted insurance underwriters to find a policy that best reflects your travel and health needs. If you’re planning to travel more than once a year, then purchasing annual multi-trip travel insurance can save you time and money, whereas our single trip travel insurance is better suited for individuals of all ages with pre-existing conditions, who wish to travel once.
