Travel Insurance to France

You’re Off To France - Bon Voyage

Whether you’re enjoying a family camping trip, a relaxing beach holiday or an energising city break, France has got it all. Fabulous food, great hospitality and sunshine await you. It’s time to get excited about your trip away!

A simple getaway for UK holidaymakers, France is easily accessible by air, boat and train from Kent, London or a number of UK airports. In 2022, Paris was the world's most attractive tourism destination in the Top 100 City Destinations Index. 

France can be considered as a starting point for European holidays, with many travellers utilising the transport links to visit popular skiing and snowboarding destinations in the Alps. Not only that, Belgium is just a short drive from the Port of Calais, and for the Roadtrippers amongst us, the whole of mainland Europe is at your fingertips. 

Where to visit in France?

France doesn’t just open up opportunities to visit other European countries, it’s home to some wonderful places to visit, no matter what you’re looking for. Disneyland Paris – A magical place for young and old alike, Mickey and his mates have been a major part of French tourism since 1992.

  • French Alps – A major lure for skiiers and snowboarders alike in the winter months, the French Alps are home to some of the most prestigious ski areas in Europe. Not just for winter, when the snow thaws and the flowers blossom, they are the perfect base for hiking or adventure holidays at altitude. 
  • French Riviera – Or Côte d'Azur, many celebrities frequent the glorious sandy beaches, lured by the glamour of resorts such as St. Tropez and Cannes. You can find some gems along the coast if you’re looking to stray away from the popular resorts and find a bargain. 
  • Paris Landmarks – Trek to the top of the Eiffel Tower, Amble over to the Arc de Triomphe, look at the lavish artwork in the Louvre or sail on the Seine. There are plenty of things to see and do in the French capital. 
  • Historic points of interest – Spend some time paying your respects to the fallen soldiers of the world wars. There’s a lot to learn about French and American history at Omaha Beach, where the Normandy American Cemetery and Graveyard overlooks the scene of one of the deadliest battles in history
