France is undoubtedly the most accessible country from GB and can offer the best connections to reach the most diverse destinations for every budget.
Six ferry companies, from a two hour hop to Calais to a night cruise to Normandy, fourteen airline companies from the classic BA to a range of low-cost ones, the Eurostar, the TGV and the standard local railways, and an extended & very secure highway and national road network, offer all the possibilities at every price to tour around France.
And if you haven’t gone with your car, you’ll always find the kind of transportation you like or you want on site. Barge? Bike? Yacht? 2CV? Donkey like Stevenson?
Don’t forget tourism is one of the main industries in France and the services on offer aim to exceed the client’s expectations. Another very important point is the improvement of this product as more and more people just want to embark on their own adventure, at their own pace and off the beaten track.
