Travel Risks in France

Crime rates are low in France, and most trips are trouble free.

However, be aware of pickpockets in large cities, and be vigilant of scams such as fake charity donations in the street, the same as you would in any other populous area.

Travel risks in France are limited, but it is vital to protect yourself when doing more potentially dangerous activities such as Skiing and Trekking.

Make sure you have the correct cover if you are planning to carry out these ventures on your holiday.
