AC66 Posted July 19, 2017 Share Posted July 19, 2017 Hi everyoneThis is my first post and I was hoping to get some advise and a few pointers.My partner and I are planning to take an extended holiday/career break in the South of France next year starting January/February time. We will be driving down with our two small pug dogs.I have worked near Beziers, on the coast for PGL children's holidays back in the late '80s and we've also been on holiday to Marseille and Bandol recently. We would like to be near the coast if possible and are looking at an out of season let. This part of it looks to be relatively straight forward (is it?) but things like car insurance and bank accounts etc worry me.Has anyone driven over with their UK car insurance (mine goes up to 90 days in Europe) and stayed for longer? If so what is the best thing to do insurance wise whilst in France? We were only planning to be away from the UK for 3 to 6 months but I am now thinking that we may not be allowed to stay for longer than the three.Also for this shortish amount of time, would it be wise to get a French bank account or not really worth it?Apologies if these seem like daft questions but this is all new to me.ThanksAndrew Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
