Grab FREE tickets for the Tour de Finance
The Tour de Finance was named after the famous cycling race and just like the race, it stops off at various points around France. But, unlike the race, there are no bikes involved.
Instead, the Tour de Finance features lots of free, specialist advice covering a diverse range of subjects. These include healthcare, financial advice, tax, pensions and currency transfers, as well as topics such as house letting and holiday rentals.
The second stop for Tour de Finance after Lyon is the seaside resort of Cannes on the glamorous Côte-d’Azur. Cannes is inextricably linked with the film festival but there’s much more to it than that. Besides, if you live further afield, coming along to the Tour de Finance event provides the perfect excuse to take a mini-break and discover Cannes.
Admittedly, it’s a glamorous place but if you leave the Russian oligarchs behind and head off inland, you can discover another side to Cannes. You could shop like a local at the Forville market, which sells a mouthwatering selection of Provencal delicacies, then explore the streets around and about, before strolling back to the waterfront. Then why not grab a ferry to one of the two îles de Lérins? Both islands are stunningly beautiful and make a perfect place for a picnic. An evening stroll along the promenade makes a perfect end to the day and you can be up bright and early the next morning, ready for the Tour de Finance event
The day starts with a coffee and welcome session at 9.30 am. The rest of the morning will be divided into short seminars. These will cover subjects such as tax, pensions and currency transfers as well as healthcare and financial advice. Topics such as property lets and holiday rentals will also be addressed. There will be plenty of opportunity to ask the speakers specific questions and meet other guests over the free buffet lunch which is kindly being provided by the organisers.
This is a great opportunity to come along and get free expert advice on a wide range of subjects. Plus, you’ll also get to meet up with other expats. The Tour de Finance is open to all and entry is entirely free of charge. I really do recommend coming along. SFN readers can pre-book some of the (strictly limited) places by simply following the links below. If you can’t make the Cannes event, the Tour de Finance continues throughout March and April and the venues are all listed below. Just choose the event that is nearest to you and click on the venue of your choice to reserve your place. It’s as simple as that. And once you’ve booked, you’ll be entered into a prize draw with the chance to win a £250 voucher to spend in The British Corner Shop. Mmm, sausages...
