Travelling King - Helping people to turn their holiday dreams into a reality!

France is the most visited country in Europe, with nearly 90 million visitors each year. Most come to the capital city of Paris, with the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, Arc de Triomphe, and the Champs-Elysee. Other travelers choose to explore the Normandy Coast, the beaches of the French Riviera or the lavender fields of Provence. France shares borders with Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Luxembourg, and Belgium.


Currency: France uses he Euro as their currency which can be withdrawn from ATMs throughout France, however keep in mind that smaller cities or towns may not have access to ATMs and its recommended to withdraw cash and take it with you.

Power Points: Most power points are the same as most other European power points (2 circular prongs). Obviously I would recommend you take a Travel Adapter especially for non Europeans.

Official Language: The official language of France is French.

Health: There are no major health concerns in France for travellers, however measles outbreaks have been reported. I would recommend that you contact your doctor a few weeks before you travel as in some cases you need to start any medication a few days before your trip or you may need to get a vaccination. The tap water is generally safe to drink.
