Price of gas falls. AGAIN!Good news for anyone who uses gas in France.
Anyone using a notary in France should benefit for a slight cut in the cost of their services.
For example when it comes to the sale of certain properties or land, the fees for a notary will not exceed 10 percent of the value of the property.
Essentially that means that anyone buying a cheap property, including a parking place or storage or land for a small amount should see big reductions in tariffs, but for those buying flats in Paris the savings will be negligible.
From Tuesday May 2nd anyone taking their driving theory test will have to respond to a raft of new questions.
Candidates will be shown videos instead of still photos and each person will be given their own set of individual questions.
One of the main changes that will affect people in France concerns train travellers.
From May 1st rail operator SNCF have implemented a change to their ticket cancellation and changes policy which will bring an end to a system whereby passengers could make last-minute alterations free of charge.
Changes can still be made free of charge up to 30 days before the date of travel but after this deadline passengers will have cough up a €5 surcharge to change their tickets.
That charge will rise to 40 percent of the cost of the ticket if changes are made within 24 hours of the scheduled travel time.
