France…. Perhaps one of the best culinary, fashion and cultural centres of the Europe world… what more reason do you need to visit this wonderful country? Extravagant expenses, perhaps. But once you have saved enough to purchase a luxury trip to France, it will be better if you also purchase a relevant travel insurance package to avoid any losses from trip cancellation or any misfortune that might befall you.
If possible, try to avoid French school holidays and Easter, hotels are very likely to be overbooked and road traffic awful. Once you have landed in this Mediterranean country, there are plenty of destinations to choose. Paris, the city of light and romance with its ever-famous Eiffel Tower; Bordeaux, offering you a range of famous winery productions, traditional stone mansions and smart terraces; Versailles, the famous glittering royal palace built by Louis XIV…. And millions and millions of other!
Crime-related emergencies can be reported to the toll-free number 17. Law enforcement forces are the National Police (Police Nationale) in urban area and the Gendarmerie in rural area, though for limited issues such as parking and traffic offenses some towns and villages also have a municipal police. France is a very low-crime area, and is one of the safest countries in the world, but large cities are plagued with the usual woes. Violent crime against tourists or strangers is very rare, but there is pickpocketing and purse-snatching. Just to be on the safe side, you should purchase a loss-of-valuables cover as part of your travel insurance package. Remember, it never hurts to be too safe!
