comment Can I own a French registered car as a non-resident?
In France, only liability insurance is mandatory. You'd care about that even with a beat-up car.

comment Can I own a French registered car as a non-resident?
It's certainly possible to own a car in France without being a resident. I'm sure you'd find someone willing to insure you. How much you'd end up paying is another matter.

comment Where can I rent a car in French Guiana to cross to Suriname/Brazil?
Whether flying to Cayenne or Paramaribo is cheaper depends on when you fly and where from. From Paris I think Cayenne is usually significantly cheaper.

comment Pin-and-chip versus signature in the UK
How do you explain that locals with a European chip-and-PIN card enter the PIN rather than signing then? @Tor-EinarJarnbjo These attacks are only worse on chip-and-signature. Chip-and-PIN is not safe enough to be foolproof the way some banks claim, but it's an improvement on what was there before.
