Those who wish to escape the whirlwind of urban life, also enjoy the diversity of the French landscape –sea, mountains, countryside- and its wide range of possible outdoor activities. The Dordogne and Loire Valley are among the French regions most favoured by tourists.

Some have even decided to settle here for pleasure, work or studies, either permanently or temporarily. You might be one of those who have chosen to make France their home. Eager to fully experience the French art de vivre, you might nonetheless, find yourself wanting or needing to see other horizons.

Whether it be for business or pleasure, for a holiday or a family reunion, travel arrangements are in the works and one essential step mustn’t be forgotten: choosing the best travel insurance to protect you and your loved ones.

The C’est la vie attitude is not an option when travelling and simple mishaps can turn into life changing catastrophes if the right choices are not made at the right time.

AXA’s Travel Insurance options for those living in France

AXA Travel Insurance offers different types of insurance policies to best meet the needs of travellers living in France:

Perfect if you are travelling abroad for less than three months. Depending on the options you choose, it provides:

  • Lost or damaged luggage insurance up to 2,000 €
  • Search and rescue costs covered up to 10,000 €
  • Flight delay or cancellation insurance

→ Multi-trip travel insurance for frequent travellers.

This travel insurance is the best choice for people living in France who undertake frequent stays abroad during the course of one year. Instead of subscribing each time they organise a getaway, their annual subscription covers their travel insurance needs for the entire year.

Same key guarantees as the short-stay insurance but you only need to subscribe once!

→ Student travel insurance.

For students who want to perfect their education or follow an internship abroad. It covers their insurance needs for the duration of their stay, up to 12 months. Its key guarantees include:

  • Emergency medical expenses abroad covered up to 160,000 €.
  • Civil liability up to 4,500,000 €
  • 24/7 AXA medical assistance
  • Insurance certificate for university applications
  • Lost or damaged baggage insurance
  • Legal assistance

→ Ski Travel insurance.

This insurance is tailor-made for those who can’t get enough of the mountains either as a yearly traditional trip or for the real fans who head to the ski pistes in France or abroad as soon as the first flake drops. As pleasant as it may be, winter activities are expensive and often quite risky. Injuries are frequent and equipment can easily be damaged.


  • Compensation of up to 6,000 € in case of interruption of your stay (including due to Covid)
  • Up to 15,300 € search and rescue costs on and off-piste.
  • A replacement driver for your car in case of inability to take the wheel.
  • Up to 10 hours of cleaning service after medical repatriation.
  • Refunding of ski passes and lessons following medical contraindication
  • Personal equipment reimbursed up to 400€ in case of accidental damage

→ Schengen Travel Insurance.

Even though French nationals and residents don’t need a Schengen visa and thus its compulsory Travel Insurance to visit countries of the Schengen area, it might still come in useful to subscribe to this extra coverage in case of unexpected medical expenses or other mishaps.

Bear in mind, however, that a visa and therefore a Schengen travel insurance might be mandatory for your friends or relatives traveling to France from a non-Schengen country.

AXA Schengen Travel Insurance:

  • Cheap and cost-effective
  • Covers medical expenses up to 30,000€ and even beyond for Europe Travel and Multi-trip policies.
  • Provides repatriation to the place of residence
  • Available in different options depending on your needs
  • One price for everyone whatever your age
