A few tips for a pleasant trouble-free holiday:
– You are strongly recommended to respect smoking/no smoking signs in public places.
– A service charge is included in the price of each item on the menu in any cafe or restaurant as required by French law. In theory, no further tipping is expected.
– If you are driving, park only where authorised and respect speed limits on highways and motorways. France extensively uses radars to detect speeding and take pictures of the cars. Police will send the ticket to the rental car company that will forward the bill to the driver.
