Passports and visas
You don’t need a visa to enter France. Make sure that your passport is valid until you return to the United Kingdom.
Remember your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC), but also take out travel insurance, even if you’re only going for one night – it could save you a lot of money if you get into difficulties.
You should carry your ID at all times.
