Accessible travel France
No vaccinations are required to enter France, but as with all international travel, it is recommended to be up-to-date on your vaccinations. Be sure to get appropriate health insurance to fit your personal and travel needs, and have funds available to cover any medical emergency.
France is a safe tourist destination, but it is still recommended to be cautious and to avoid flashing valuables. Muggings and pickpocketing can occur, especially in larger cities. Beware of falling victim to scams such as being approached on the street by and asked to fill out forms to make a donation to charitable associations; this can be a covert way of pickpocketing tourists.
Public transport is generally safe and reliable, but it is best to avoid travelling alone at night. Some muggings and assaults can occur, notably on the RER lines in Paris.
