Are you planning on driving in France this summer? If so, here are some points to consider…. Before you go, check your car insurance policy includes European cover – many policies default to third-party only protection on the Continent unless you stipulate otherwise, so talk to your insurer if necessary.

Also make sure you’ve got European breakdown cover in case the gremlins strike – you don’t want to be stranded at the side of the road without access to help. And you need to be aware of French motoring regulations.

Driving on the right side of the road – which means the right side of the road! – is the main one, but there are others too. Here’s our video highlighting the key differences you’ll need to bear in mind when driving in France.
