For first timers in France be aware that entering a French post code in your Sat Nav's could cause you problems. Unlike the UK post code system the French post code only identifies a town/city.

The French postal code consists of five digits, the first two digits being the number of the département in which the post office in charge of delivery to a town is located.

If you want to check or find a French post code see Quickly find a French postcode -

A French post code can sometimes be used to locate a place if you have the full address; it's not a lot of help trying to locate an aire that has no address.

Safe travelling.
