Self-driving tips for France

Jump to last reply

Here are a few suggestions of websites to help those self-driving in France (notably French Riviera):

http://www.bison-fute.gouv.fr/ is a French website detailing major road works, main closures or highway disruptions. They have a calendar of peak travel congestion (handy for travel planning during French school holidays which have different dates according to regions), and regular updates by department (area) in France.

http://www.infolignes.com/previsions.php?zoneId=3&zoneName=Sud-Est
Train updates from SNCF (French national rail) including line works and strikes.

http://www.nicematin.com/t/Ligne-d’Azur
Useful local news website with links to updates on bus strikes.

www.easytravelreport.com A great website initiative from Penny Ciocchi for global transport strikes. Very helpful for advice regarding strikes at Nice Airport including strikes by air traffic controllers and ground workers. Also, covers Paris Charles de Gaulle airport and Paris metro.

http://english.controleradar.org/provence-riviera-speed-cameras.php
Map and information on the location of speed cameras in the region.

www.viamichelin.com
Helpful weebsite for estimated driving times and costs – particularly good for fuel estimates and costs of tolls in France. Add 10%-15% time buffer to the travel times given as does not take into account stopping at traffic lights, major congestion etc
