France is a country with vast regional differences in landscape, culture and climate. You can head to Paris for a romantic city break and try champagne tasting in Epernay; ski in the Alps or surf in Biarritz, and enjoy a camping holiday in Brittany.

For many, the luxurious Cote d’Azur is the place to see and be seen. Although it has no official borders, the Cote d’Azur is a stretch of coastline that’s generally considered to run from Cassis in the west, right up to the Italian border in the east. It’s comprised of world-famous resorts such as Saint Tropez, Cannes and Nice, and it includes the sovereign state of Monaco.

Then, of course, there’s Paris – the most romantic city in the world – and it’s many iconic landmarks. From the stunning Eiffel Tower to the impressive Arc de Triomphe, France’s capital city has more than its fair share of attractions (not to mention photo spots!).

Culturally, France is very similar to the UK. You can spend your days relaxing in café-lined streets, exploring village-square markets and eating in bistros. Although French is the national language, many locals in cities and popular tourist spots speak English, so communicating isn’t usually a problem for British tourists. Before you travel though, you’ll need to convert your money to euros.

Whatever you get up to, it's important that you buy travel insurance for France to help protect yourself against any unforeseen eventualities.

Although France is close to home, you’ll still need to protect yourself against unexpected eventualities by purchasing travel insurance for France. Even though it’s considered a safe place to visit, there are still things that could go wrong. Your flight could be cancelled due to bad weather, you may fall ill after eating food that disagrees with you, or you may have some of your valuables stolen. Of course, we hope that none of these things happen, but travel insurance for France is there to protect you, just in case they do.

Many sports and leisure activities are covered on our standard travel insurance policies at no additional premium.

This is only a temporary measure while we make improvements to our website. Please keep an eye on the Allianz Assistance website in the future so you are aware when we are able to offer this additional cover again.
