Single Trip or Annual Multi-Trip?

One of the best things about Paris is that it's nestled right in the north west of France in such a close proximity to the UK; the Eurostar only takes just over 2 hours from London St Pancras to Gare du Nord! Considering how easy it is to get there, you might consider making the trip more than once a year. If you fancy yourself a Francophile and a true Parisian at heart, then why not consider an annual multi-trip policy which covers you multiple times throughout the year. Below is another table giving you a taste of what both policies can offer you:

Single Trip Policies
Annual Multi-Trip Policies
Your trip can last up to 365 days but must start and end in the UK to be entirely valid Maximum trip duration varies depending on the policy: 22 days for Bronze, 31 days for Silver and Gold, 45 days for Platinum
Travel insurance must be bought on UK soil for it to be valid. So don't try to book a policy at the airport gate, on the runway or while abroad! Groups can benefit from an annual policy and do not have to live together to be valid — that's just for family policies!
All ages are accepted on single trip policies. However, age limits apply on our cruise policies. Under 18s must travel with an adult and you cannot travel on the policy if you are older than 79 years old at the date of booking

Do I need travel insurance for France?

While the UK is just about still in Europe and we still have access to the EHIC (read more on Brexit here), you still need the relevant travel insurance policy behind you as a safety net in case something wrong should happen along the way. Should you need cancellation cover, medical insurance or baggage insurance, sorting out the right policy is imperative. Tailored around the overall cost of your holiday and any medical conditions you might have, having travel insurance in your back pocket could end up saving you a small fortune should something happen to you travelling uninsured. Sacré bleu!

Top tourist attractions in Paris

The Eiffel Tower

Without a doubt the most iconic landmark in France, perhaps dare we say, in the world. Fair warning, if you intend to ascend la tour Eiffel during the prime summer months, be expected to be greeted with queues. Truly astonishingly, long queues. You'll undoubtedly see the Eiffel Tower whilst you're walking along the banks of the Seine, but at Holiday Extras we think that it's at its most impressive at night, up-close and personal.

Palais Garnier

Situated in the 9th arrondissement of Paris, designed by Charles Garnier and home to the Paris Opera, the Palais Garnier is one of the most elaborately adorned buildings in France. Built in the architectural style of the Second Empire, the opera house is perhaps rivalled only by Versailles in its gilded opulence. You might feel acquainted with its famous staircases and chandelier as the direct inspiration for Gaston Leroux's 1910 novel, The Phantom of the Opera. To have a look around the magnificent building, taking in Chagall's infamous fresco on the ceiling, will set you back around €14 and is free for under 12s.
