Covering your trip to France against FCDO advice

Even with the FCDO advising against all but essential travel to France, our European FCDO Travel Advice Extension can give you a level of cover if you need to travel and feel it’s safe for you to go. That way, you can make the choice to travel based on how you feel, and feel confident that we’ll be there should you need us.

Please keep in mind that FCDO advice is different from government travel bans, and we can’t cover you if you travel against government restrictions.

How up-to-date travel insurance protects you from the word go

The day before Liz(1) was due to go on holiday, she was diagnosed with a new medical condition and sadly, her doctor advised her not to travel.

She contacted us and began to process her claim for cancelling her holiday. Three days later, Liz was thrilled that her claim had been successful and the cost of her holiday had been transferred straight into her account.

Nothing can take away the disappointment of not being able to travel, but having cancellation cover can soften the blow.

Why do I need travel insurance for France?

While France is the UK’s nearest neighbour things can go wrong on holiday when we least expect it, which makes good travel insurance essential.

As well as covering you against loss of personal possessions, you’ll be protected should you be forced to cancel or cut your holiday short due to an unexpected medical emergency.

The table below shows the other popular features of our travel insurance.

Do I still need travel insurance if I have a Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC)?

When the United Kingdom left the European Union on 1 January 2021, the GHIC replaced the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). You can still use your EHIC until it expires, though.

Your GHIC gives you access to free or subsidised healthcare while you’re abroad, in select European countries. It also covers your excess payment if you have a valid claim.

It’s important to have a good travel insurance policy as well as a GHIC. Your travel insurance offers you protection if you have to cancel your trip, cut your trip short, or if any of your personal possessions are lost or stolen.

Please remember that you must take a valid EHIC or GHIC with you if you’re travelling to Europe as a condition of our travel insurance.

Should I tell you about my pre-existing health conditions?

Yes, it’s really important to tell us about any health conditions you may have. When you get in touch for your quote, we’ll ask you a few questions about your health and how they impact your daily life. That way we can make sure you have a policy that’s right for you.

We understand that for some, health can be a sensitive subject, which is why we’ll take the time to talk you through the questions and explain anything that may be unclear. We’ll never rush you.

Forgetting to tell us about your health conditions may affect the validity of your policy, meaning you wouldn’t be covered if you needed our help later down the line.

Which policy is best for me?

Are you planning just the one trip to France? Then our single trip policy is ideal. There’s no age limit and you can be covered for over 80 sports and activities, including hiking and scuba diving. Just check your policy limits to see what you’re covered for.

But if you’re planning more than one holiday in the next year, our handy Annual Multi-Trip Travel Insurance policy may work out better value for money.

Still not sure? Give us a call to talk it through today, our friendly team are based right here in the UK.
