There are several major differences between driving in France and driving in the UK. Driving on the right’ is the most common difference but one that is often forgotten is the need to pay a toll on certain roads and autoroutes (or motorways) in France. Tolls are avoidable in Brittany but sadly unavoidable in many other regions of France.
One thing that never crosses your mind until it’s too late is Gadget Insurance. It’s now very common for people to own more than one gadget but do we ever think about getting them insured? We’ve heard various stories over the past year involving families travelling to France on holiday who’ve taken their gadgets with them…keeping the children entertained in the car.
As summer approaches, those of us who have booked a family camping holiday in France begin to think of the good times that are to come. The beach, the pool, visiting the sights, relaxing and most important of all having fun with your family and forging wonderful memories for years to come.
There’s one danger that we’ve been hearing more about in recent years which is scary enough to anyone, let alone those of us with children and thats Carbon Monoxide Poisoning. A few sausages and burgers cooked on a portable BBQ can quite often provide the perfect family meal whilst camping in France however as with all type of cooking, portable BBQ’s can be more dangerous than you think.
With around 81.4 million international visitors arriving there in 2011 alone and packed full of history and culture there truly is something for everyone in and around Paris.

With lots of campsites to choose from we’ve compiled a selection of some of our favourites which we hope you’ll enjoy! Brittany lies just a short ferry ride across the English Channel and with a beautiful coastline, sandy beaches, picturesque and historic towns and villages and lots to do, it’s not difficult to see why it’s so popular with British tourists.
