Standard banking hours are Monday to Friday from 8:30-9:00 to 16:00-17:30. Some banks also extend hours on one day a week, while others (usually small branches) close for the day at 12:00-14:00. Some branches open on Saturdays (usually from 9:00-13:00), but if so they are usually closed on Monday.

Credit & debit cards in France

American Express, MasterCard, Diners Club, and Visa are widely accepted. Check with your credit or debit card company for details of merchant acceptability and other services which may be available.

Travellers cheques

In 2002 the Banque de France stopped dealing in foreign currencies so therefore no longer handles travellers cheques.

Useful Things to Take

Torch and batteries, insulated water bottle, mosquito net, adhesive tape, alarm clock, wet-wipes, small ruck-sack, fabric shopping bags, padlock.

Health Requirements

Before visiting France, you may need to get the following vaccinations and medications for vaccine-preventable diseases.

To have the most benefit, see a health-care provider at least 46 weeks before your trip to allow time for your vaccines to take effect. Even if you have less than 4 weeks before you leave, you should still see a health-care provider for needed vaccines, medications, and information about how to protect yourself from illness and injury while traveling. Be sure your routine vaccinations are up-to-date.
