Time and mobile connection

The standard French time is one hour ahead of UTC (UTC+1:00). During summer, the time zone changes to UTC+02:00 because of the transfer to daylight saving.

Good mobile coverage exists in big cities. Check roaming rates with your mobile provider before travelling to France, as roaming with your non-French mobile can become very expensive.
