How To Plan A Trip To France


Right from the bustling streets of Paris to the spectacular views from the Eiffel Tower and from the luxury retreats on the French Riviera to the captivating French Alps, there is so much to experience and explore on a trip to France. Here’s a quick guide for you to plan and live your dream adventure without any hiccups.

  • Get Your Documents Lined Up

Keeping your documents ready to secure a France visa is always a better idea. Firstly, check your passport expiration date as you are likely to need your passport to be valid for six months beyond your trip dates. You will also need all your flight and accommodation proofs to secure a visa apart from your financial standing proofs.

Next, apply for your France visa at least three months before since it is recommended that you submit your application at least 15 working days before you intend to travel to France. When you apply months before, you have the option of re-application in case of any rejections.

  • Establish A Travel Budget

When planning a trip to France, prepare a budget as early as possible even before you know your destination, travel dates, or itinerary. This will allow you to arrive at an itinerary that matches your budget rather than the other way round.

Some destinations are generally cheaper compared to others, but there are ways to save on your travel no matter which destinations you decide to include in your schedule.

  • Prepare Your Itinerary

Preparing your itinerary can be a daunting task especially when you have high expectations from the destination. But, while planning don’t go ahead and book a round trip flight to Paris and a hotel room at least, not yet. You’ll want to sketch out a day-by-day itinerary of your perfect trip to France before you book anything. You should also look out for top festivals to visit in France as well as tips on exploring food culture of France. If you are a beach lover, find out more about the best beaches to visit on your trip to France.

  • Look For Deals

Since airfare will probably be the most expensive part of your trip, continue to look for deals once you have figured your itinerary and need to book your flights to apply for the visa. You should also look at booking day passes and other sightseeing as well as train passes way in advance to get good deals. You should also consider a comprehensive travel insurance policy for France and follow these steps to save for a trip to France.

So, now that you know what is to be done just breathe and enjoy your trip to France. As Gustave Nadaud wisely said, “To be, is to exist, but to travel, is to live.”
