car/van insurance france??
« on: February 29, 2008, 04:45:08 AM »
Hello

Anybody have some info on car/van insurance requirments in France...  I bought a van but insurance rates are extremely high- as i am from Hawaii it is a bit of a logistical headache... any ideas for cheap insurance solution for a foreigner or if i don't have- will the french fine or throw me in the slammer... ?

Or try to ask your Hawaian company with which french company they use to work...and then with the letter it will be easier...
The letter in english would be fine, but the letter in french would be perfect...(I am french...)

Why not get an International Driver's license?  Are they a problem for insurance in France.  They are good for car rentals.
