Whether you’re escaping to France for a weekend jaunt, or have an extended family holiday planned, don’t go away without travel insurance.
This essential financial safety net could be a lifesaver should you be unlucky enough to have a holiday disaster such as lost luggage, an accident or a medical emergency. And, if you buy it as soon as you book, travel insurance for France may pay out should something unexpected cause you to cancel your holiday before you travel.
As well as packing your holiday insurance for France, don’t forget to take a valid GHIC card too to benefit from subsidised healthcare while you’re away.
To find the best policy for you, it’s wise to compare travel insurance for France before you buy. We recommend that you look for at least the following cover in any policy:
If you’ve arranged your trip yourself, rather than booking a package holiday, you may want to look out for policies that include end supplier failure too. This will protect you financially should an element of your holiday, such as an airline or hotel, go bust.
Also pay attention to the excess on policies you are comparing – we recommend keeping this at £100 or less.
What's classed as a pre-existing condition? Can you extend your cover? If you're perplexed by your policy, our handy guide to all things travel insurance means you'll never get lost in the legalese again.Read moreabout Your travel insurance questions answered
