Taking your pet
Travelling with pets to and from France.
Driving in France
Driving in France can be a vastly different experience to driving in your own country. It is essential that motorists get to grips with these differences before taking a trip in order to stay as safe as possible when using roads in France.
Please see the information you need to know in one handy guide supplied by the RAC.
Clean air, Crit’Air France
Clean air sticker, some cities may require you to register your vehicle for a Crit’Air sticker.
Crit’Air stickers are mandatory for driving in low-emissions zones introduced by certain local authorities or for driving when the préfet introduces emissions-based traffic restrictions during periods of pollution.
Doing this directly with the government is inexpensive and quite easy. There are many websites that will do this service for you for a fee. The government site is in English and German as well as French.
