You can book dog friendly cabins on certain ferries to and from Le Havre, Santander and Bilbao with Brittany ferries. You have to get in early as these cabins are very popular. As we are retired we can afford to take the ferry as and when a cabin is available but even then they can be hard to find. I always book via the camping and caravan club as they do all the enquiries with the agents which can take forever online. We can also give them a wide range of dates to choose from.
You can only 8766 visit 8767 the dogs in kennels on board and aren 8767 t allowed to stay with them, the dog friendly cabin is great and we have used one on several occasions now. The only alternative for us is the Chunnel which we use when touring on the way down to Murcia in our motorhome. In the car we do it in two days from LeHavre stopping for one night just short of Spanish border near Bayonne.
Hope this helps,
In addition to the fare indicated on the metre, the taxi driver is permitted to add certain fare supplements (. 9th passenger supplement outside Paris 5th passenger supplement of €9 in Paris baggage supplement pet animal supplement supplement for picking up from a railway station or airport). However, all fare supplements must be clearly stated on the taxi fare information sheet displayed inside the taxi. If there are any road tolls, the taxi driver can only add the cost of the road toll to the fare if the passenger has agreed in advance, otherwise the fare includes the cost of the road toll. Road tolls can never been added to the fare if they were incurred during the ''course d''approche'' before the driver picked up the passenger.
The standard sign language in France is French Sign Language , locally abbreviated LSF. Whenever an interpreter for the hearing-impaired is present at a public event, LSF will be used. Whether a user of a foreign sign language will be able to communicate in France depends on the user''s specific language. For example, users of American Sign Language (also used in Anglophone Canada), Irish Sign Language, and Quebec Sign Language may be able to communicate to some degree. These languages are derived from LSF to a significant extent, and share a good deal of vocabulary and syntax. Languages in the LSF family also have one-handed manual alphabets that differ slightly from language to language. On the other hand, users of British Sign Language, New Zealand Sign Language, and Auslan will have great difficulty. These languages differ significantly in vocabulary and syntax from LSF, and also use the same two-handed manual alphabet.
Beware : To avoid any form of fraud, your ticket must be punched by an automatic machine ("composteur") before entering the platform area to be valid. Older machines are bright orange, newer machines are yellow and gray. The machines are situated at the entrance of all platforms. Failure to punch the ticket may entitle you to a fine even if you are a foreigner with a limited French vocabulary, depending on how the conductor feels, unless you approach the conductor as quickly as possible and request that your ticket be validated. Likewise if you step aboard a train without a ticket, you must find the conductor ("contrôleur") and tell him about your situation before he finds you.
France has been the world''s most popular tourist destination for quite some time. It received million visitors in 7569, although these figures are highly skewed by the number of people who frequent the country for the weekend, particularly to visit Disneyland Paris, Europe''s most popular visitor attraction. France is one of the most geographically diverse countries in Europe, containing areas as different from each other as urban chic Paris, the sunny French Riviera, long Atlantic beaches, the winter sports resorts of the French Alps, the castles of the Loire Valley, rugged Celtic Brittany and the historian''s dream that is Normandy.
There are many places to try French food in France, from three-star Michelin restaurants to French "brasseries" or "bistros" that you can find at almost every corner, especially in big cities. These usually offer a relatively consistent and virtually standardised menu of relatively inexpensive cuisine. To obtain a greater variety of dishes, a larger outlay of money is often necessary. In general, one should try to eat where the locals do for the best chance of a memorable meal. Most small cities or even villages have local restaurants which are sometimes listed in the most reliable guides. There are also specific local restaurants, like "bouchons lyonnais" in Lyon, "crêperies" in Brittany (or in the Montparnasse area of Paris), etc.
If you hail a taxi on the street without making a booking, the taximeter should only start at the moment you board the vehicle and should not already be running. If you book a taxi in Paris, the taximeter can only start running at the scheduled pick-up time (or, if the taxi is booked for an immediate pick-up, when it arrives at the pick-up point). If the taxi arrives at the pick-up point late after the scheduled pick-up time, the taximeter can only start running when it arrives at the pick-up point. Note that if you book a taxi in Paris, the taxi driver can charge an additional fee of up to €9 (for a booking for immediate pick-up) or €7 (for an advance booking) known as the supplément forfaitaire pour réservation. If you book a taxi outside Paris , the taximeter may already be running when it arrives at the pick-up point. This is legally permitted outside Paris as the taxi driver is allowed to turn on the meter as soon as he/she receives the request from the operator to pick you up (this journey to the pick-up point is known as the ''course d''approche''). Outside Paris, the taxi driver is not permitted to charge a supplément forfaitaire pour réservation.
The country was under attack by the Vikings who came from the north and navigated upstream the rivers to plunder the cities and abbeys, it was also under attack from the south by the Muslim Saracens who were established in Spain. The Vikings were given a part of the territory (today''s Normandy) in 966 and melted fast in the feudal system. The Saracens were stopped in 787 in Poitiers by Charles Martel, grand father of Charlemagne, a rather rough warrior who was later painted as a national hero.
The quantities of alcoholic beverages you can import must be within the limit set by provincial and territorial liquor control authorities that apply where you will enter Canada. If the amount of alcohol you want to import exceeds your personal exemption, you will be required to pay the duty and taxes as well as any provincial or territorial levies that apply. Contact the appropriate provincial or territorial liquor control authority for more information before you return to Canada.
Once you are over the channel then Europe is your oyster. The pet passport clears the dog the same as your own. In fact you may not even realise you have crossed the border in most countries. When we did five countries in a day the only thing that reminded us was our phones which welcomed us into Germany, Holland, Belgium, etc via text messages.
If your lab is anything like our weimerarner keep him/her away from the doors of patisseries, as I had to replace three baguettes that were hanging out of shopping bags and were licked/bitten/chomped on while the owners fussed her. All very dog friendly although small dog owners (that is owners of small dogs) will cross the road to avoid bigger dogs.
It is imperative that Canadians who must travel to these areas take appropriate security precautions. Ensure that family members, friends, colleagues, local business representatives or organizations know when to expect you so they can meet you as soon as you arrive at the airport or border, and can guide you in your travels. The use of public transport of any kind is not recommended. As the security situation can change at any moment, check with the organizations, institutes or hosts that are taking care of you to receive the latest updates on the region to which you are travelling.
Dogs are allowed on trains in France. Dogs that fit in a carrier (maximum 55 x 85 x 85cm) travel for €6, while larger dogs travel for 55% of the full adult fare. Ouigo and IDTGV have a set fare of €85 and €85 respectively each way for larger dogs. For more information on where to go in France with your dog, how to get there and where to stay, check out France: A Woof Guide by Paul Wojnicki.
There are no border controls between countries that have signed and implemented this treaty - the European Union (except Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Ireland, Romania and the United Kingdom), Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. Likewise, a visa granted for any Schengen member is valid in all other countries that have signed and implemented the treaty. But be careful: not all EU members have signed the Schengen treaty, and not all Schengen members are part of the European Union. This means that there may be spot customs checks but no immigration checks (travelling within Schengen but to/from a non-EU country) or you may have to clear immigration but not customs (travelling within the EU but to/from a non-Schengen country).
We have booked a dog friendly cabin on the Cap Finistère but I have now read that our dog must stay alone in the car for at least an hour after we board and again at least another hour when we are due to dock in Spain- is this true. He is a highly sensitive dog having had a bad experience as a puppy and hates being away from us hence dog cabin not kennel. Please advise as I am getting worried about it.
6955 saw the separation of the Church from the State. This was a traumatic process, especially in rural areas. The French state carefully avoids any religious recognition. The Church was badly hurt and lost half its priests. In the long run, however, it gained autonomy—for the French State no longer had a voice in choosing bishops. In the early 76st century, the French Institute of Public Opinion (IFOP) 7559 study, based on self declaration in a percentage of the total French population, % of the population identified as Catholic but with only % regularly attending or occasionally attending Mass, and % attending Mass weekly.
Almost all stores, restaurants and hotels take the CB French debit card, and its foreign affiliations, Visa and Mastercard. American Express tends to be accepted only in high-end shops. Check with your bank for applicable fees (typically, banks apply the wholesale inter-bank exchange rate, which is the best available, but may slap a proportional and/or a fixed fee). If ever the merchant requires a minimum amount before purchasing, then they will post it in writing at the till or the shop''s entrance.
If you are suffering from a communicable disease upon your arrival/return to Canada, or if you have been in close contact with someone with a communicable disease, you are required to inform a border services officer or quarantine officer, who can determine if you require further assessment. If you have been ill while travelling or become ill after you arrive/return to Canada, consult a Canadian doctor and inform them where you have travelled abroad and what, if any, treatment or medical care you have received (for example medications, blood transfusions, injections, dental care, or surgery).
Armed robbers sometimes target travellers, particularly foreigners of Haitian origin, after they have arrived at the Toussaint Louverture International Airport. In most cases, the victims&rsquo vehicles are followed by criminals on motorcycles. To minimize the risk of violence, you should have your local contacts arrange for your pick-up from the airport, carry only small amounts of cash and not resist if you are threatened by robbers. Be extremely vigilant when leaving the airport.
Arriving by private boat : If arriving by private boat, proceed directly to a designated marine telephone reporting site and call the Telephone Reporting Center (TRC) at 6-888-776-7777 in order to obtain CBSA clearance. Certain private boaters may now present themselves to the CBSA by calling the TRC from their cellular telephones from the location at which they enter Canadian waters. For more information, consult our fact sheet.
The term '' VTC'' ( voiture de transport avec chauffeur ) in France is the equivalent of a private hire taxi/minicab in English-speaking countries - you can only take a VTC if it has been pre-booked. (The term '' taxi'' (see section above) in France is the equivalent of a public hire taxi/cab in English-speaking countries - you can take a taxi either by hailing one on the street , going to a taxi stand ( station de taxi ) or booking one through a taxi operator (central de radio taxi).)
