Hi, I’m looking at driving to France next week in a yet-to-be-purchased vehicle. Possibly either a van (transit) or a mini bus, more likely a van the way things are looking.
I want to find out about insuring myself to drive the vehicle when we get to France though… is it best to get a separate policy, possibly from a specialist insurer, or should I be able to get such cover in with my UK policy?
Any advice would be great, I’ve not bought a van before or driven through europe. Thanks!
Thanks for your answers. It’s not practical for us to hire as we need something to live in on our return while we house hunt so we couldn’t afford to hire and then buy one when we got back (nor would we have the time). I didn’t know about the new law regarding yellow vests though so thanks for that, and the glasses thing (I’m shortsighted).
I am going on holiday to France later this year and I will be travelling by Ferry into Calais. I will be meeting up with friends who will be coming into Calais via the Eurotunnel and I am looking for somewhere on the outskirts of Calais (near A16/A26) where we could meet up for some breakfast before we head off together.
Ideally I am looking for some kind of motorway services – I’m not overly fussed, the French equivalent of a Little Chef (Le Petite Chef?) would do, it is just somewhere convenient to meet up and get on our holiday.
I know that there are places called ‘Aires’ but I cannot find any decent information such as what facilities they have in order to make plans.
I am thinking of driving to Caen to see the area where my relatives were killed and injured during WWII, but I am apprehensive about driving on the ‘wrong side of the road’, as the French do.
I have read a little about the French road signs but am still nervous. Does anyone know of some video or similar on the web, showing how the French drive, ie roundabouts, and with examples of the confusing signage which seems to allow drivers to come out onto main roads?
Adelpho U – Unfortunately, can’t view that, it says domain unobtainable.
Thanks Elmbeard – That info you posted ‘Priorite a droite – where a tractor pulling out of a blind side junction has right of way still operates on some D roads and some roads in town. They are much better signposted than they were, but just be aware that someone might pull in front of you from the right. ‘ is the big scary thing -I worry I’d be doing 56mph down a road and then suddenly I have a vehicle come out in front of me.
Dubbed “the city of lemons”, Menton, Alpes-Maritimes, celebrates annually the local product. The lemon feast is a unique event in the world, featuring giant patterns exclusively composed of citrus and floats decorated with oranges and lemons.
Since the 15th century, Chin is a major producer of lemons. Beginning of the 20th century, the Mediterranean town imposed as the leading producer on the continent. In 1929, a hotelier had the idea to organize an exhibition of flowers and citrus fruits. The success was such that the following year, party down streets with carts of shrubs planted oranges and lemons.
50 Iconic Thrones of various epochs and civilizations, are presented in large apartments of the Palace of Versailles and will help the public better understand the universality of the representation authority sitting, religious or political.
“Trônes Majesty” receives outstanding loans, such as those made by the Vatican, the forbidden city of Beijing, the European Royal residences (Madrid, Warsaw…). In an adapted staging, iconic, seating such as King Dagobert, Napoleon, Louis XVIII or sedia gestatoria (mobile Throne) of Pope Pius VII meet African, Chinese or Thai seats…
Between sobriety and faste, measure and immoderation, Thrones always refer to the same symbolic of authority “sitting”. This exhibit is unprecedented manner dialogue these objects, often masterpieces, with the decoration of the château de Versailles, place par excellence of exercise and the representation of power. Exposure is also included in the circuit of the great Royal apartments.
“The exercise of sovereignty associated with two distinct concepts: authority and power”, recall the exhibition designers. “The authority ensures to its owner a perennial character and legitimate, it”Theology”the holder on a basis more stable than those offered by the power.” It is ephemeral and acquired hardly by its holder, it draws its origins in the victory of the hero on his opponents. Thus, symbolically, images appear authority representative sitting and standing strong even in movement. »
