France Travel Questions & Answers



My husband and I are planning to visit Paris in September and I was wondering if it is absolutely necessary to get travel insurance for just 3-4 days? We are international students here in London and I do not want to spend extra money on travel insurance for such a short stay!

Assume that you'll only go once or twice in your lifetime. I live in Geneva, which is not very far from Paris, so I've been there lots of times....and some of my favorite things to do and see there are not very touristy, or are more popular with visitors from within France/nearby. My sister is going to visit, and now I find it difficult to recommend things to her because it's been so long since I did any of the really touristy stuff. (For example, if I went to Paris it would never occur to me to go to the top of the Eiffel tower. But maybe this is something she'd like to do?) So, if you're in this position, meaning, you took a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Paris, and travelled a long way to get there, what did you consider to be the best, most worthwhile things you did? Thanks!

Flying Myrtle Beach [MYR] to Atlanta [ATL] then ATL to Paris Charles De Gaulle [CDG] and CDG to Bristol, UK [BRS] MYR-ATL-CDG-BRS At what points do I need to check-in my baggage between connecting flights? Do I just leave it to the airlines to transfer it between carriers? I don't understand, they don't tell you these things when you're a first time flyer! For info - the MYR-ATL-CDG is with Delta Airlines. CDG-BRS is with Air France.
